Jesus presents a serious challenge for all of us to rethink everything we think we know when he stated “I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life!” in John 14:6!

In this message Dr. Gary Deddo proclaims the astounding and gracious Good News of mankind’s reconciliation to God in the person of Jesus! He encourages us to take Jesus seriously as proclaimed by the Apostle Paul in Colossians 2:6-7, and explores the implications of our identity in Jesus. This is not easy to discern, so avoiding obstacles is important if want to experience the fullness of our true liberation and freedom in Christ!

Gospel Intensive: Spirituality, Last Things, and The Kingdom of God!

Slide1

Jesus tells to seek the kingdom of God before anything else. That sounds exciting and meaningful. But what does that mean? How do we go about it? Pursuing those questions requires exploring the question: Who is Jesus Christ in relationship to the world and its history? If Jesus Christ is Lord of time and space, and all of history, then out of that center our whole understanding of spirituality and eschatology [last things] is transformed and renewed!

Why Jesus’ Church Fellowships More And More! pt.5(b)

fellowship2

On this 4th Sunday after Pentecost, Pastor Timothy Brassell of  New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, Proclaims the GOOD NEWS of The God Revealed in Jesus Christ in the continuation of pt. 5 of this Gospel Series, entitled, “Why Jesus’ Church Fellowships More And More!” and continues to show through Hebrews 10: 1-25  and 1 Thessalonians 2 that the historical context of Hebrews demonstrates that living in God’s image (in relationship together!) is SO CRUCIAL to our well-being that we ARE CALLED to FELLOWSHIP WITH EACH OTHER, all the more, even in the middle of persecution!

We hear in this message:

  • Through a quote by Deitrich Bonhoeffer that “the Christian needs another Christian who speaks God’s Word to him. He needs him again and again when he becomes uncertain and discouraged, for by himself he cannot help himself without belying the truth. He needs his brother man as a bearer and proclaimer of the divine word of salvation. He needs his brother solely because of Jesus Christ. The Christ in his own heart is weaker than the Christ in the word of his brother; his own heart is uncertain, his brother’s is sure.”  Life Together, p.22-23. This is why we meet. We were meant to hear the Gospel proclaimed to us!
  • There are many pressures placed on us, especially on fathers, because of society’s myth which is that the primary goal of life is the American work ethic and how it will give you power and save you, especially since our jobs are where we get our paychecks, or livelihoods.
  • A more detailed answer to the question: “How do we sort out our calling to the Body of Christ and our calling to our Civic Responsibilities including our jobs?”  Specifically we understand the responses to that question to be that:    
    • (1) In this world we have dual responsibilities and they relate around one true center – JESUS CHRIST, so we should NOT rank our responsibilities but prioritize CHRIST IN ALL OUR RESPONSIBILITIES!  
    • (2) We should NOT conceive of our job or the Body of Christ as independent of one another because in Christ, the Kingdom of God has broken into THIS AGE so that Jesus has the SAME END RESULT for BOTH YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE AND YOUR WORK LIFE!
  • Jesus IS our Work and our Ethic even if that appears confusing or troubling to us! Our Identity IS in Him! The right thing to do is whatever God is doing through us, in participation with Jesus and in the Holy Spirit.  We not only live FOR Jesus, but we also live FROM Jesus!

Listen and understand more clearly that we can and need to think of our participation in life as DUAL CITIZENS who relate in our dual roles around the One Center of reality: Jesus!

On this Gospel Learning Day, Dr. Gary Deddo, of Grace Communion International, Proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ at New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, MD. in this 4 part message entitled “Who are You, Lord?”

PLUS, hear Dr. Deddo, in Part 4, respond to questions and answers from the audience, giving clarification on Gospel related issues that you will find extremely thoughtful and helpful!

“Accurately describing a person well is not easy. It’s hard to find the right words and put them together in such a way that they reflect and convey, in a fairly deep way, who they are. This challenge is no less the case when we speak of Jesus Christ. How do we grasp and also express to others who Jesus is? When this task is taken up in a serious and disciplined way by believing people, the church, it’s called Christology. In this class we want to spend some time considering how we can speak, pray, worship, witness and love Jesus Christ as faithfully as we can. With a foundation in Scripture and the help of a number of church teachers down through the ages we’ll see if we can grow deeper in our understanding of the person and work of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.”  – Dr. Gary Deddo
