Isaiah 3:10-12

March 25th 2018



Intro – The bible speaks about our sins being placed on Jesus but doesn’t tell us exactly when that took place.  I believe our text today gives us a pretty good clue.

I.  He was crushed because He became a “guilt offering”.  (10) Is.53:5

A. We know our sins were placed on Him. 2Cor.5:21,

B. When He said “Thy will be done” He became our guilt offering. Luke 22:42-44, (Hematohidrosis)

C. Judas delivered Him over to the Roman guards. Rom.4:25

II. His life was prolonged.  (10)

A. He rose from the dead.

B. His resurrection was proof God was satisfied with the guilt offering. (11)

C. His resurrection was proof our sins were paid for. (11) Rom.6:23, Heb.9:26, Heb.10:10, 12

D. We are justified by trusting in His finished work. Jn.19:30, Rom.3:28

III. He will be known for His great work of salvation. (12)

A.  We eagerly await the return of our Savior. Heb.9:28, Rev.19:14

B.  The world will know Him as the Savior. Is.52:15

C.  Every unbeliever will someday confess He is Lord. Phil.2:9-11

Con. –What amazing love He showed us by becoming our “guilt offering”. The children recognized Him as “King of Kings and Lord of Lords”. Can you sing of Him today as your King?




Luke 1:46-56

March 18th 2018



Intro – Mary sings her praise to God for all He has done including choosing her to be the mother of the  Messiah.  Through her He would carry out His promise to Abraham to bless all nations.


I. God helps the humble.

A. She was a slave to God’s will. (48) Rom.6:18, 22

B. She showed a humble attitude. (38)  1Cor.1:26-28

C. She expressed a need for a Savior. (47) Rom.3:10, 23


II. God helps those who glorify Him.       Ole Hallesby prayer

A. She exalts (magnifies) the Lord.   (46) Ps.34:2

1. By knowing scripture.    1Sam.2:1-10, Ps.37:30-31

2. By telling what God has done.    Ps.98:1-3

B. He is the One who has done great things. (49) Jude 1:25


III. God helps those who trust Him.

A. With trust comes respect for who He is. (50) Luke 12:5, Rev.21:7-8

B. He had fulfilled His promise to Abraham. (54-55)  Gen.12:3, Lk.2:11, Mt 1:21, Phil 2:7


Con. God can use you if you humble yourself before Him and allow Him to have His will done in your life.

Then your life will glorify Him also. You will sing His praises for what He has done for you.

“Lord if it will be to Your glory heal suddenly.  If it will glorify You more, heal gradually; if it will glorify You even more, may your servant remain sick awhile; and if it will glorify Your name still more, take him to Yourself in heaven.”   Hallesby

Intro – authority=the right or power to enforce rules or give orders.  Today we want to look at the authority of            Jesus.  People could sense this authority in His message.


I. He has all authority. 31-32 Matt.28:18

A. Preachers acquiesce to His authority. “the bible says”. Mt.7:28-29

B. He has given us authority to proclaim His word. 1Thes.4:2, 8,  Acts 26:16


II. He has authority over the spirit world. 33-35

A. The demons knew of Him and His power.

1.  Power to destroy.  (34)

2.  Power to cast out.   (35)  Mt.8:29

B. The demons know their end. Rev.20:10, 15,  Matt.25:41


III. He has authority to forgive sin. 36-37

A. His power over demons proved that. Matt.9:6

B. He also has authority to determine your eternal destination. LK.12:5, Jn.5:26-29

C. Only in His name can sins be forgiven. Acts 4:12, 1Jn.1:7

D. Jesus calls on us to preach that message. Titus 2:11-15, 1Tim.2:3-7

 Con. – Communion reminds us of that power over sin. The important question is will you submit to His   authority over your life?
