Main Passage: Daniel 3


Theological Theme: God – Father, Son and Spirit alone deserves our ultimate allegiance.

Christ Connection: The same God who was faithful and present with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the flames will also deliver us through His Son, Jesus the Christ, who is with us in the fiery trial and who saves us from sin and its consequences.

Missional Application: God the Holy Spirit calls us to embrace a countercultural lifestyle with full confidence in His power, regardless of what the immediate outcome may be.

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2018/05/17-11-19-how-to-stay-faithful-in-exile-full-message-daniel-1-tah.mp3”


Main Passage: Daniel 1


Theological Theme: As Christians, we can trust in God – Father, Son and Spirit’s guidance even while we are in exile here on earth.

Christ Connection: Daniel stayed true to his identity, obeyed God, and was a testimony to God’s grace. He points forward to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who willingly embraced a sinful world without ever defiling Himself and through His death and resurrection became the greatest picture of God’s grace the world has ever known.

Missional Application: God, through the Holy Spirit, calls us to be a shining testament to His grace by remaining true to our identity in Christ and living in holiness.

Tainted By Sin, Saved By Grace

Joshua 8 Saved By Grace

Full Sermon, 37 mins.:https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/16-11-13-tainted-by-sin-saved-by-grace-joshua-7-8-tah-guest-oneal.mp3”

Theological Theme: All of us are tainted by sin because we have inherited a nature and an environment inclined toward sin.

Christ Connection: The Valley of Achor is a chilling reminder of sin and its consequences, but God – Father, Son and Spirit later promises to make the Valley of Achor “a gateway of hope” (Hos. 2:14-15). The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord (Rom. 6:23).

Missional Application: God the Father sends us the Spirit of Christ, calling and empowering us to exalt His name in our battle against lingering sin and its consequences.

The Law’s Blessing and Curse

Deut 10-11 Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the law

Part 1, 24 mins :https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/16-10-02-the-laws-blessing-and-curse-part-a-deuteronomy-10-11-tah-guest-andrews.mp3”

Part 2, 24 mins :https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/16-10-02-the-laws-blessing-and-curse-part-b-deuteronomy-10-11-tah-guest-andrews.mp3”

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.

Jesus is the Ultimate Atonement and Sacrifice, Part 2

Jesus is the ultimate Atonement

Part 1: “https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/16-09-23-jesus-is-the-ultimate-atonement-and-sacrifice-part-a-leviticus-5-hebrews-9-13-tah-guest-marra.mp3”

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.

Full Sermon:https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/16-08-28-the-triune-god-of-relationships-exodus-20-12-21-tah.mp3”

 

Theological Theme: God the Father’s law reflects God’s intention for human flourishing in society.

Christ Connection: As the sinless Savior, Jesus is the only One who has kept the law perfectly. He demonstrated His love for others by laying down His life in their place.

Missional Application: Because we have experienced God’s great love toward us, we are called to love and seek the good of our neighbors in the Grace and Power of the Spirit.

Breaking News: Jesus Is Renewing T/His Church! pt.7

acts-2-45-47-party-fellowship

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/16-08-07-breaking-news-jesus-is-renewing-t-his-church-part-7-acts-2-42-47-tah.mp3”

As Hugh Halter has written:

“From the beginning of time and throughout the scriptures, God’s people patterned their lives around celebration, feasts, social gatherings, levity, story-telling, eating, drinking, laughter, and listening…

…Remember, when teaching about the gospel of the kingdom, our living metaphors are that of a wedding feast, a banquet, and a supper. It’s time to include this in our own spiritual formation.

That’s what this message is about as a congregation literally throws a party for the community!

Only The Childlike Will Enter God’s Kingdom

38-daily-dependence-matthew-18-3-childlike-faith

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/16-07-31-only-the-childlike-will-enter-gods-kingdom-matthew-18-1-6-tah.mp3″

George MacDonald wrote, Do you think you love your children better than He who made them? Is not your love what it is because He put it into your heart first? Have you not often been cross with them? Sometimes unjust to them? Whence came the returning love that rose from unknown depths in your being, and swept away the anger and the injustice? You did not create that love. Probably you were not good enough to send for it by prayer. But it came. God sent it. He makes you love your children.”

This message of God’s Good News proclaims how God – Father, Son and Spirit – puts his love into us, growing us up into being childlike, so that we may share in it with him, and with others, in his Kingdom!

Breaking News: Jesus Is Renewing T/His Church! pt.6

Part 6a: “https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/16-07-24-breaking-news-jesus-is-renewing-t-his-church-part-6a-john-13-tah.mp3”

This message asks along with author Tim Chester, “When will we introduce [the world] to the network of believing relationships of which are privileged to be a part? When will they see us participating in the trinitarian life. When will they see that we not only submit to God’s will, but actually know God as a Father through the Son and by the Spirit? When will they see our relationships with one another: not perfect relationships, but relationships that reflect our experience of triune grace? When will they see a supernatural community that reflects the sending by the Father of the Son in the power of the Spirit, and the glorification by the Spirit through the Son of the Father.

Only as they experience the reality of the work of the Trinity in the lives of believers, and our vibrant relationship with the triune God, will the doctrine of the Trinity cease to be an academic game and become their living Hope.”
