In Light Of God’s Salvation

Joshua 24 Gospel Project 2017

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/05/16-11-20-in-light-of-gods-salvation-joshua-24-tah-guest-marra.mp3”

Theological Theme: Our best efforts at obedience are bound to fail unless we have first experienced God – Father, Son and Spirit’s salvation through Jesus.

Christ Connection: Joshua was God’s chosen servant to bring the Israelites into the promised land. His story points forward to Jesus Christ, God’s chosen servant who will bring God’s people to their eternal inheritance.

Missional Application: God our Father, through Jesus, and in the Spirit, calls us to put away our idols, participating with Him and displaying for the world a new way of living, made possible only through Jesus, our Salvation.

Jesus is the Ultimate Atonement and Sacrifice, Part 2

Jesus is the ultimate Atonement

Part 2: “https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/16-09-23-jesus-is-the-ultimate-atonement-and-sacrifice-part-b-leviticus-5-hebrews-9-13-tah-guest-marra.mp3”

Full Sermon: “https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/16-09-23-jesus-is-the-ultimate-atonement-and-sacrifice-part-2-leviticus-5-hebrews-9-13-tah-guest-marra.mp3”

Theological Theme: The sin offering represented the purification of the people before Our Father. The restitution offering addressed the damage of depriving others of their rightful due, and it served to cleanse the offender’s conscience.

Christ Connection: These offerings point forward to Christ, whose work purifies our hearts, cleanses our consciences, and frees us to do good deeds for His glory.

Missional Application: God the Holy Spirit calls us to offer others the hope of purification and cleansing that comes only through trusting in Jesus Christ.

Rebellion Against The Redeemer

Theological Them: Idolatry is putting something or someone in the place of God – Father, Son and Spirit.

Christ Connection: The children of Israel needed a mediator to intercede on their behalf. Jesus Christ is the mediator between God and sinful humanity; He intercedes on behalf of His people.

Missional Application: God calls us to intercede for people who need Him, appealing to His character and His will as we pray for their salvation.

Theological Theme: God is God alone, and He demonstrates His glory by comforting His people and confronting those who oppose Him.

Christ Connection: Jesus Christ is the sovereign King who promises to return, rescue His people, and put an end to all suffering and oppression.

Missional Application: God calls us to war against the principalities and powers of this world that keep people in bondage to sin and suffering.

The Covenant-making Triune God Tests Abraham

God will provide - Gen 22

Theological Theme: Faith is trusting in God to keep His promise to provide salvation.

Christ Connection: Isaac’s question “Where is the lamb for the sacrifice?” echoes through the pages of the Old Testament and is ultimately answered at the beginning of the New Testament when John the Baptist sees Jesus of Nazareth and declares, “Behold the Lamb!”

Missional Application: God calls us to be people of faith who, like Abraham, are so filled with confidence in God’s resurrection power that we are willing to sacrifice for His mission.

 

Identity Christus!

identity in christ

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2015/03/01-15-22-08-identity-christus-eph-2-1-10-john-3-14-21-tony-marra.mp3

On this 5th Sunday of Lent, Pastor Tony Marra of  New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, Proclaims the Good News of the God revealed in Jesus and shows through  Ephesians 2: 1-10 and John 3: 14-21, that our TRUE identity is in JESUS CHRIST! God’s will is that ALL would come to know him through Jesus Christ and that our identity Crisis is something that needed to be overcome and accomplished ONLY through Jesus Christ!

Hear in this message that:

  • God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. We are FREE in CHRIST!
  • We no longer find our identity in the dead life of sin and darkness. God the Father sent His one and only Son to rescue us from our false identity inherited from Satan the father of lies.
  • We were blind to our identity until our Triune God of love broke through our darkness and revealed our true identity in Christ. Through Jesus and the Spirit we now know who our real Father is and are raised up to our eternal home where we were always meant to be.
  • The whole world needs an “Identity Christus“. In Christ we find our true identity as beloved children of God seated at the right hand of the Father and in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.

Ascending To Glory With Jesus

Ascension-of-Jesus

 

In this Good News Message entitled “ Ascending To Glory With Jesus,” Pastor Tony Marra of  New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, Maryland, affirms that Jesus came to bring all of humanity to Glory. All of creation is United through Jesus Christ. There is nothing you can do to stop God’s plan and purpose for you. You are HIS WORKMANSHIP! Nothing can separate you from him and nothing you can do to earn his love. It is all freely given by his Grace.

God is unifying all things in Christ, so even when we get frustrated and angry because we may not see his plan, because of his gift of faith he has given us as his children, we know that it will all get worked out according to his plan and will.

He Gave Gifts To Men (All People!)

Gifts and Talents

Do you know where you fit in?! Because God the Father is “over all and through all and in all” through Jesus, and by the Spirit, you most definitely fit in and have a Gift! At the very least your Gift is the Relational God Himself, Who never gives you something apart from Himself being involved! But this Relational God shares some of Who He is and what He has with YOU, in all of His creativity and talent, so that you can share in Him and His variety with others! Gifts aren’t simply a “churchy”, “religious” experience, they are a love experience of people in relationship with God and others!
