The Man of Great Suffering

Part 4, The Word On The Cross "Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani!" Hebrews 2:18; Mathew 27:24-28; 45-46; Isaiah 53:5 Luis Cruz, GCF Durham The scene is still on the cross. Jesus’ last words and sacrifice brought the whole Christian world to reflect.  As we go through this lent season, I want you to think of Jesus as the Man of Great Suffering. Jesus is the incarnate Word, fully God and fully human. In His human form, he is able to suffer. And in His suffering, God opened the door to His forgiveness to people like you and me, sinners, who would humbly accept the facts of Christ’s suffering and believe it was enough to completely pay for our sins. No matter how big or small you think your sins were,


Part I: The Significance of the Church Pastor Marc Sosmena I Timothy 3:1 - 16 (ESV) I TIMOTHY 3:1-16 (ESV) 1 The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. 2 Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4 He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, 5 for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God's church? 6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and

The Greatest Affection On The Cross

Part 3, The Word On The Cross Sermon Series John 19:23-27, Luis Cruz, GCF Durham Lent highlights both forgiveness and divine love. Divine love is the underlying current that moved God to send Jesus for the forgiveness of sins. Jesus is God’s greatest affection ever expressed to us. In this study, we will see Christ’s love and care for His mother and His warm affection to His disciple, even to those who rejected Him. Indeed, in His dying, Jesus continued to show us how to live our life. 1. Overcoming hate with love. “23 When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, wov

Today, You Will Be With Me In Paradise

Part 2, The Word on the Cross Luke 23:36-43, Luis Cruz, GCF Durham Lent reminds us of our commitment to share the story of Christ’s saving work on the cross. Someone said, “God did not call us to judge people, but to preach the gospel.” And it’s true. The apostle Paul said this in 1 Cor. 15:3-4,“3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.” The Lent season provides a big opportunity for us to pass on the gospel “as of first importance”. We can share the gospel to others by simply retelling the story of Christ on the cross. 1.

“Father, Forgive Them”

Part 1, The Word on the Cross Luke 23:32-36; Mark 2:1-13 Luis Cruz, GCF Durham Lent is the season for fasting, self-denial and moderation for some people. But biblically speaking, Lent is more than the observance of these seasonal practices, rather, it is a time to refocus on Christ after the many holidays and vacations. And focusing on Jesus should be daily not just seasonal. A good way to focus on the Lord is by reflecting on His Seven last words on the cross. Jesus said, “35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” Matthew 24:35. 1. Forgiveness is in God’s nature. Luke 23:34, “34 “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” • Jesus’ plea
