About the Messiah / Out of Darkness
About the Messiah – What did the First Christians believe about Jesus? He was the Messiah, of course. But he was more than that. In the Psalms, the name of God is used alongside the descriptive Adonai, or Lord: Jehovah said to my Lord. At the time, it was considered improper to speak the Holy Name in public, and Jesus obviously did not. Nevertheless, the Pharisees immediately saw the problem with the Psalm in that David referred to the Messiah as his Lord. Our question is, how did the First Christians understand it? Peter understood Jesus to be “both Lord and Christ.” Learn from this fascinating Born to Win broadcast how the identification of Jesus as Lord establishes his divinity.
Out of Darkness – How could a woman like Mother Theresa live her life in doubt of God’s love for her? So many of us live out our lives with doubt of one kind or another, but there is a difference between doubt and unbelief. The most honest people admit their doubts. It is possible to love Jesus, to serve him, to do what you think he wants you to do, and yet not know him very well at all. He makes it clear that faith is not a feeling. It is a decision to trust in spite of feelings. King David, a man after God’s own heart, cried out to God not to be silent to him. It’s imperative that you understand what Jesus requires of you. This message clearly lays it out.
