SERMON: March 31st, 2019 “Let’s Back Our ‘Awe’ of God”
When Jesus returned home to Nazareth, they were astonished at His teaching (Mark 6:2). But then, in a sudden turn, their awe turned to disbelief. He spoke with the authority of God but the people in His hometown brought Him down to their level. They were speaking out of jealousy – Jesus came humbly and they reacted out of pride. A proud person does not compliment – unless it will make him look good. Galatians 5:19 “The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery, idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions.” Jealousy is based out of pride and the only way to rid ourselves of pride is concentrate on Jesus; Who came down from His throne and surrendered everything for our freedom. Never lose the awe of what Jesus has done.
