Listen to him
Listening to him.
Today Peter started the sermon with a quiz about what sayings or phrases we think Jesus actually said. We believe that Jesus is more than a moral teacher, he is the only son of God, and God incarnate.
Jesus appeared with Moses (law) and Elijah (prophet) – but God was saying that Jesus was more than these, he was his only son. God reveals himself in Jesus.
God said “listen to him”
Are we really listening to Jesus? –If we have really heard Jesus then it will be evidenced by our actions.
Challenge to read Matthew 5-7 and reflect on whether we are really following what he tells us.
If we only acknowledge Jesus’ teachings as good moral things to follow and we do not have a relationship with him then we are not truly living God’s will.
Jesus gives us the Holy Spirit to empower us.
Do you live out your life in a relationship with Jesus?
