The man at the pool

Rosskeen Free Church Sermons

Reading: John 5:1-47

Key Verse: John 5:12 So they asked him, ‘Who is this fellow who told you to pick it up and walk?’

Jesus by his actions including healing on the sabbath was showing everyone how to fulfil the law of God. Jesus was keeping the Sabbath holy as God intended, but the Jewish leaders would not listen but rather persecuted him for breaking their man made rules.

Jesus responded to this persecution by teaching them more plainly who He was and by what authority He did what He did, to which they responded by trying all the more to kill Jesus.

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.
