Jesus is God

December 23, 2018

As modern Christianity appears to go further away from sound doctrine, we must rise up and state the truth about the person of Jesus Christ.
 
This doctrine is offensive. People will let you talk about Jesus all day long, as long as you keep Him on par with every other religious leader, but once you say, “Jesus is God,” get ready for what you have just said is going to stir them, either to belief, or hatred.
 
Jesus claimed to be God that the Pharisees tried to kill Him multiple times. It was that exact claim that was the final straw for Ananias the High Priest to push for His death. The same facts about Christ that Believers hold dear are the very same facts that non-believers hate. But if we don’t present the facts about Jesus, then there is no way for the non-believer ever to become a believer.

    What it means to live in Christian community desperately needs to be revisited today by the modern church. Christians have been trained to have an extremely minimalistic view of their Christianity and no longer see the need for deep Christian fellowship and interaction. These opening verses by Peter are a punch in the gut to modern Christianity. Are you striving to live in Christian community with unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind? If you have been caught up in modern-day church attendance, "check the box, done for the week" mentality, then you are falling way. You will be short of arriving at the level of Christian intimacy commanded here by the Apostle Peter. Thank you for listening. The Church at Pecan Creek is located in Denton, Texas.

    This portion of Peter is very challenging to the Christian-mind, but it is clear that God is concerned about how we live in society, how we submit to authority, as a citizen, in our places of employment, and even in our homes. Remember that your obedience or disobedience to God is most observed by those in your home. May your presence, whether in society, in a workplace, or in your home, be a beautiful representation of Christ for all to see. Thank you for listening.

    God has called us to endure insult as Christ endured it. Just because you are a Christian and living a Christian-lifestyle does not mean that you will not suffer hatred and insult. Trust in God who will judge all sin justly. While you may be called to suffer, even unjust suffering, in this life, know that the One who bore your sins by dying for you, has risen from the dead and you are in His care. Even while suffering, you are still under the care of the Shepherd of your soul. Thank you for listening. The Church at Pecan Creek is located in Denton, Texas.

    Being mistreated, persecuted, enduring trials, suffering, and even suffering unjustly can wreak havoc on the Christian’s mind. However, the Bible does not leave us in distress when we face suffering. When called by God to suffer, and your situation is out of your control you can rest in the peace of knowing that God is in control. Thank you for listening.

    We are citizens of heaven and Jesus is our King, yet God has put earthly authorities in place of which we are to honor. Our civil obedience is the will of God for proper Christian living. Don’t become so heavenly-minded that you fail to see the people that God has placed around you. Are you honoring all people regardless of age, race, status, etc.? If not, repent. Are you loving others in your local church as you should? If not, repent and start doing so today. Thank you for listening. The Church at Pecan Creek is located in Denton, Texas.

    How are you viewed by those around you? Do they see you as one of them, or do they see you as one of His? If you are a Saint, don’t live like a sinner. You are a stranger here because you are a citizen of heaven. Strive to be a light in this dark world by your life and your words. The world loves sin, and it loves those who join them in their sinfulness. However, you are called by God to be different, to lead lives that reflect the God who has saved you.

    When an identity crisis happens, when trials of life come your way, when society rejects you, like it did Christ, it is crucial for you to remember who you are. Do not forget who God says you are: a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people who are to worship God, a people who were in the darkness but are now in the light, a people for God’s possession, and a people who have received mercy.

    The New Testament makes a lot more sense when you understand the Old Testament. Long story short, in order to be a part of God’s Chosen People, His Royal Priesthood, and a citizen of His Holy Nation, you must be in the New Covenant which is made by Jesus Christ.

    Peter uses an architectural metaphor to describe Jesus Christ. In the building process, much effort would be taken to examine the stones to make sure that they were fit the construction of a building or house. If stones were weak, fractured, or inadequate, they were rejected, thrown away, and considered useless. During the time of Jesus, and ever since, many have looked and rejected Christ from their lives. Think back to His time on earth; the Pharisees, Sadducees, scribes, the Sanhedrin, and the High Priests all hated Him and wanted Him dead. This fact was a common point in Peter’s sermons. You, as a Christian, are part of something much larger than yourself. Your Christianity is not meant to be kept private. If it is, you are missing out. You are part of a much larger structure with God as the architect. You are a priest, set apart by God, for God. Be aware that just as Jesus was the Chosen One of God, yet rejected by man, you too may experience the same rejection by this world. However, do not forget you are precious to God.
