Main Passages

Job 1:6-1220-22

Job 16:1-518-22

Job 40:1-5 42:7-9

“The story of Job confronts us with the question “Why do good people suffer?” And the story offers us insight into right and wrong ways to pursue the answer to this question. The suffering of Job points us forward to the ultimate answer to the problem of evil—the redemptive suffering of Jesus Christ and the promise of a world made new. And as Jesus’ followers, we seek to alleviate suffering as we walk alongside others.” – The Gospel Project

Theological Theme

God- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, does not give us the answer to why we go through suffering, but He does give us Himself.

Christ Connection

In his time of suffering, Job yearned for a mediator—someone to stand between him and God. Jesus is the mediator who suffered, even though He had never sinned, in order to pay the price for human sin and to put an end to suffering on earth.

Missional Application

God, through His Holy Spirit, calls us to comfort people going through a time of suffering, not by answering every question but by assuring them of God’s great love.

“Jesus does not give recipes that show the way to God as other teachers of religion do. He is Himself the way”

Identity Christus!

identity in christ

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.
