THE GOOD SHEPHERD

THE GOOD SHEPHERD

It is only in Jesus Christ that we could perfectly and clearly see, know and understand God’s heart, person, nature or character. He is therefore the only One that God the Father has set before us to look up to, listen to, conform to, and imitate in everything.

As a sheep of God, your eyes must be fixed on Jesus and you must see to it that you follow Him daily, constantly and closely, abiding in His teachings, walking in His footsteps, and conforming wholly to His example. Any shepherd or pastor whose lifestyle and teaching does not wholly conform to that of Christ is a stranger that you must not follow…

THE LIVING BREAD

THE LIVING BREAD

All through their forty years journey in the wilderness en route the Promised Land, the children of Israel lived on manna, the bread from heaven. Beyond the immediate purpose of the manna as sustenance for their body, the manna was also intended to serve as a type or representation of Jesus Christ, the Living Bread.

By raining down manna or bread from heaven to sustain the children of Israel in the wilderness, God was obviously preparing their hearts to receive by faith “the Living Bread” He would send in the fullness of time…

THE DIVINITY OF JESUS CHRIST (Part 2)

THE DIVINITY OF JESUS CHRIST (Part 2)

The resurrection of Jesus is the ultimate proof that Jesus’ claim to be equal with God the Father in every respect was not a blasphemy. How and why?

If Jesus’ claim of divinity was false, or if Jesus was just a liar, an impostor, or a blasphemer as the Jews accused Him, He would not have resurrected from the dead! If Jesus truly blasphemed by claiming that He was God manifested in the flesh, without any doubt, God would have left or abandoned Him in the grave until the day of final judgement to judge, condemn and send Him to hell fire…

THE DIVINITY OF JESUS CHRIST (Part 1)

THE DIVINITY OF JESUS CHRIST (Part 1)

Like the religious but ignorant Jews of those days, many religious folks today are still rejecting the divinity of Christ. They would gladly accept Jesus Christ as a good teacher, a righteous man, a prophet or messenger from God, but not as the Almighty God.

Sadly, some believers today also hold the unscriptural view that although Jesus Christ is God, yet He is somewhat lesser or inferior to the Almighty God. Why is accepting and believing the truth that Jesus Christ is fully God so crucial to the Christian faith? First, it is the basis of our salvation…

THE MINISTRY OF JESUS CHRIST (Part 2)

THE MINISTRY OF JESUS CHRIST (Part 2)

We all were born as sinners, enemies to God, separated, alienated or estranged from God as a result of the sin of the first man, Adam. By our self-righteousness, performance, or good works we can never deserve or earn God’s love, friendship, acceptance, favour, or blessing. But out of His great love for us, God made the move to reconcile us to Himself through the means of the Mediator, the Man Christ Jesus (1 Tim. 2:5-6).

As the Mediator between the holy God and the sinful men, the Lord Jesus had abolished the enmity or hostility between God and us in His flesh, making peace through the blood of His cross…

THE MINISTRY OF JESUS CHRIST (Part 1)

THE MINISTRY OF JESUS CHRIST (Part 1)

In a word, the ministry of Jesus could be described as the ministry of “reconciliation.” What the Lord Jesus came down to do is simply to reconcile or restore all things to God, whether things on earth or things in heaven.

Why did all things need to be reconciled to God? Because all things were corrupted, alienated or estranged from God through Adam’s disobedience! Through Adam sin entered the world and through sin corruption and death entered the world and spread to the entire creation. In Adam we all became corrupted, dead, alienated or estranged from God…
