Full Sermon:https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/16-10-02-the-laws-blessing-and-curse-deuteronomy-10-11-tah-guest-andrews.mp3”

 

Theological Theme: The law is God the Father’s good gift [holy, just and good], but it cannot save us from the penalty of disobedience.

Christ Connection: Obedience to God-Father, Son and Spirit’s law brings a blessing. Breaking God’s law brings a curse. Jesus is the One who took the curse of our law-breaking humanity in order that we might experience the blessing of His law-keeping humanity, all of Grace!

Missional ApplicationIn response to the awesome works He has accomplished for us Jesus sends us His Holy Spirit, conforming us to Himself as we participate in and reflect His character toward others.

Worthy Of Praise

Exodus 13-14 Red Sea

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/08/06-26-16-worthy-of-praise-exodus-13-14-tah-guest-andrews.mp3”

Theological Theme: God Father, Son and Spirit magnifies His glory through His faithfulness to lead and save His people while bringing judgment upon those who oppose Him.

Christ Connection: God  the Trinity parted the Red Sea in order to make a way of salvation for His people. In a similar manner, God made a way of salvation for us by sending His Son.

Missional Application: The Relational and Triune God calls us to praise Him for His glory in salvation and judgment so that others will see and be compelled to join us in giving praise to Him.

God Is Faithful To His Covenant

God is faithful to his covenant (Gen 41-50)

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/05/05-08-16-god-is-faithful-to-his-covenant-genesis-41-50-tah-guest-andrews.mp3”

Theological Theme: God is sovereign and He will bring good out of evil circumstances.

Christ Connection: God took the evil deeds of Joseph’s brothers and used them for His greater plan of providing salvation from the famine. In the same way, God used the evil injustice of those who put His Son, Jesus, on the cross to bring about His master plan of providing salvation from sin and death.

Missional Application: God calls us to forgive those who sin against us because we recognize that God is working everything for the good of those who love Him.

The Creator Destroys And Redeems!

Genesis 6, 9 Noah finds Gracehttps://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/16-02-21the-creator-destroys-and-redeems-gen-6-9-tah-guest-andrews.mp3”

In this message of Good News we see how, like Noah, we are saved from God’s
judgment and called to obey God as His redeemed people.

God’s Covenant With Abraham

 

God's Covenant With Abraham

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/16-03-06-gods-covenant-with-abraham-gen-12-15-17-tah-guest-andrews.mp3”

In this message, we learn that God is a covenant-making God. Because of sin, the people on earth had been separated from God (Eden) and each other (Babel), but God chose one man, one family, through whom He promised to reverse this separation. This promise was later fulfilled through Abraham’s descendant—Jesus of Nazareth. And this promise continues to be fulfilled today through the mission of Jesus’ church as peoples from all over the world become part of God’s family through faith in the gospel.

Jesus Christ, Our Vision!

Jesus our vision

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/01/15-01-03-jesus-christ-our-vision-matt-8-tah-guest-andrews.mp3”

As a congregation grapples with participating even more with Jesus on His Mission in and outside the walls of the local congregation, the Good News is proclaimed that Jesus Christ is our Vision, therefore, we can go forward confidently with Him in faith, and without fear, even in the middle of the accompanying storm!

Matthew 8:23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24 Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.

Do Not Fear!

Fear not

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/15-11-22-do-not-fear-isaiah-41-10-tah-andrews.mp3”

In a world full of fear, the command (and challenge!) from God the Father, through Jesus, and in the Spirit, TO YOU, is, “Do Not Fear, for I am with you!”

Taste And See That The Lord Is Good!

taste and see

In this Gospel Message, Pastor Richard Andrews of  New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, Proclaims the GOOD NEWS of The God Revealed in Jesus Christ with a  message entitled “Taste And See That The Lord Is Good!” and asks the question “Are we ready to take that exhortation we find in Psalms 34 and make it something we LIVE BY, LIVE THROUGH and LIVE WITH?”

In this message we learn what trials REALLY represent and hear that:

  1. Our foolishness does NOT determine God’s actions towards us! There is no circumstance we can go through that is too big or complicated that can change who God is!
  2. No matter the circumstance, God invites us to open up our mouths and have an experience with him. God invites us to experience HIS presence.
  3. Our trials help us to taste and see God’s goodness. They make God REAL. The more we TASTE, the more we SEE, the more we TRUST!

Listen and be comforted knowing that God loves us too much not to let us experience HIM, and because of that there WILL be points of pain and trials.

Profit And Loss

 

 isaiah 55

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/01-14-10-05-_profit-and-loss_-phil-3-4-14.mp3

Are you wondering WHEN are you going to experience the treasures that come with knowing God?

In this Gospel Message entitled “Profit And Loss”, Pastor Richard Andrews of  New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, Proclaims the Good News and  gives encouragement through The Apostle Paul and by exploring Philippians 3:4-14 and also by reading the Lectionary, 17th Sunday after Pentecost: That our Profit and Losses are not Fiscal Profit and Losses but Profit in the context of our trials – Treasures in heaven. The kind that are measured in our Blood and Jesus’s Blood. The kind that are measured in sweat and tears.

In this message hear how to see our trials and ourselves differently by learning:

~We need to start seeing Jesus and what HE wants differently.

~We need to start seeing the acts and works of our hands differently.

~We need to start seeing the things that come out of our mouths differently as we grow in Christ.

~Our Prize is to move forward, to press on through trials, to see the heavenly calls. (Isaiah 55-1)

~To count it all as a period of cleansing – Our “Pressure Cooker Period”

~To ask ourselves: AM I READY TO LET GO OF ME? AM I TIRED OF WORKING THINGS MY WAY?

~To see trials as a way of melting/weakening of the flesh/ humbling us.

~To see trials as pointing us to THE ONE IN WHOM ALL ANSWERS ARE FOUND!

~To see trials not just as losing self but GAINING JESUS CHRIST, growing in his righteousness!

In this message we understand that:

~There is NO WAY to share in Jesus’s suffering without US SUFFERING! To know Christ is to know him in his suffering!

~Our Father is saying, STAND UP as a Community in the LOVE of God and WALK as a Community to help other Communities. We are never in a vacuum but rather, US TOGETHER with FATHER SON and SPIRIT embracing us all. We stand in the name and power of Jesus Christ who lives in and through us!
