Hear and Do

Rosskeen Free Church Sermons

Reading: James 1:2-27

Key Verse: James 1:22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

Being fed such a vast array of information but in sound bite chuckes, this generation is suffering from decreasing attention spans, causing people to struggle to concentrate over lengthy periods. This can have spiritual implications since God is calling us to hear and meditate on what is heard. Christian meditation/pondering takes time and thought.

We need to think thought the issues raised in a sermon. What does this look like in my life – how to apply this to my life.

Are we really listening?
Are we acting on what we hear?

It is finished!

Rosskeen Free Church Sermons

Reading: John 19:28-37

Key verse: John 19:30b – “Jesus said, it is finished”

Jesus came to the world to become sin for us, so that we may have forgiveness and eternal life. As Jesus was nailed on the cross, He experienced the anger, wrath and judgement of God the Father, and as He cried out to God, there was no answer. He went through the agony and suffering so that scripture would be fulfilled, and He was able to say “it is finished”. He died and suffering for us. Have you trusted in Him? Trust and obey!

Sermon Points:

A. The Coming of Christ

B. The Cross of Christ

C. The Completion of the work of Christ

The Ascension

Rosskeen Free Church Sermons

Reading: Luke 24:50-53 and Acts 1:1-11

Key Verse: Acts 1:3
[Jesus] after his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.

Before the Holy Spirit could come Jesus had to go. But before he physically left them he time and time and again proved to them the reality of his resurrection. Spending those 40 days teaching them about the kingdom of God.

Dr Luke begins his second volume stating that his gospel record was just the beginning of Jesus work. The founder of other religions completed their work before they died – but Jesus continues to work even now, because he ever lives.
