The Astonishing Power of Jesus
Jesus Is Good News for Sinners Only
October 7, 2018 • Pastor Kirk Welch
We find here this morning one of the clearest and most definitive statements that Jesus ever made to explain the reason He came down from heaven to our world. This is what Jesus had in mind when He made the voluntary commitment to become one of us. You can see it with me in Matthew 9:13 – “Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” Jesus came for sinners not righteous. He came not to help good people become better but save bad people from their sins.
Jesus’ Domination Over Demons
September 23, 2018 • Pastor Kirk Welch
We obviously live in the physical realm, but there is a spiritual realm in which spiritual beings – angels – operate all the time (2 Kings 6). This is happening all the time, but Satan and demons prefer to keep their presence quiet so you don’t know it’s happening. But when Jesus was present and preaching, they could not keep from announcing both their presence and Jesus’ power over them. That’s what we see here and will explore in Matthew 8:28-34.
Who is Jesus?
August 12, 2018 • Pastor Kirk Welch
Matthew's primary point is to convince you that Jesus is exactly who He said He is – the Son of God and God’s Messiah King. The point is not that you would think highly of yourself but rather highly of Jesus. Join us as we begin our series in "The Astonishing Power of Jesus" by asking "Who is Jesus?"
