A Sermon Preached on Sunday 6th July 2014
Last Sunday Morning in Ryedale Evangelical Church we heard of the plan of God to produce fruit in those who are joined to Jesus Christ.
Back to basics, the Gospel isn’t a set of rules or even a proposition, its a Person, God, who is the Way, The Truth and The Life. Listen and live!
Sunday 12th January 2014.
William Horsburgh Preaching at Ryedale Evangelical Church in Pickering.
Another fine day, glorious weather and therefore a great opportunity to speak about the good news of sin forgiven through faith in Jesus Christ who most certainly died and rose again from the dead!
SOMEONE HAS COME BACK FROM THE DEAD,
THERE SHOULD NO LONGER BE ANY DOUBT
THAT LIFE CONTINUES BEYOND THE GRAVE!
In obedience to His command we would have our little part of the world know, that they might prepare themselves for the day they will meet Him.
Many people pass through Pickering, visitors and locals, too few wanted to stop and talk today, the frequent, “no thanks, I’m ok” revealing the tragic delusion that is being used to blind their minds.
Were You In Town ? Take a look at these pictures and get in touch if you were.
Before you can appreciate the Good News you need to hear and understand how God sees you.
These words are found in the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Church in Rome. Chapter 3 [quoting from: Psalms 14:1-3; 53:1-3; Ecclesiates 7:20]
10 As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one;
11 There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God.
12 They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one.“
People mistakenly measure themselves against other people, and conclude they are all as good as one another. They are right – not good!
God’s standard is being ignored by a generation that has deluded itself into thinking there is no God, imagining that if they say it often and loudly enough it will be true.
Ps 14:1 The fool has said in his heart,
“There is no God.”
Its a real privilege to meet believers from other places, do stop and talk, we love to hear of the Lord’s work elsewhere. Here are a couple of Christians who were happy to do just that:
Acts 10 says this about Jesus Christ:
38 Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins;
39 and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.
[All Scripture quotations are from the New King James Version of the Bible]
FINALLY the Steam Locomotive made its appearance too, its amazing who and what you can see and hear in Pickering.
The weather has changed and we’ve good reason to be out spreading the goodnews again.
The preacher and the audience.
Jesus Christ is risen from the dead and you can see our efforts here of reminding the world. Unfortunately there were few people about, some did stop and sing with us and then stay to listen as Nick and I preached.
Conversations afterwards found people attracted by the singing but far from any saving knowledge of Christ. Let’s call on God for the salvation of many souls.Speaking words of life.
Declaring the good news.
