M2014 s33 just say it 5 4-14 sermon

  1. 1. Maud church of Christ by Jim Bradshaw Sunday Morning, May 4, 2014
  2. 2. Highly Valued by a Worthy ManLuk 7:1-5 ESV After he had finished all his sayings in the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum. (2) Now a centurion had a servant who was sick and at the point of death, who was highly valued by him. (3) When the centurion heard about Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, asking him to come and heal his servant. (4) And when they came to Jesus, they pleaded with him earnestly, saying, "He is worthy to have you do this for him, (5) for he loves our nation, and he is the one who built us our synagogue."  Servant – (doulos) a slave in its fullest extent.  Servant Sick to the point of death.  Servant Highly Valued by a Worthy Centurion.  Centurion Worthy Because of his love of Israel…
  3. 3. The term, "proselytes of the gate", was derived from the frequently occurring description in the law of the stranger that is within, Exo_20:10; etc. "Converts of thy gates"; this class were not bound by circumcision, and the other special laws of the Mosaic code. It is doubtful, however, whether the distinction made in the Talmud ever really existed. (Smith’s Bible Dictionary) A Worthy Man? Likely this Roman Centurion, like Cornelius of Acts 10 was a “proselyte of the gate”
  4. 4. Eph 2:13-15 ESV But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. (14) For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility (15) by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace,
  5. 5. Act 10:28 ESV And he said to them, "You yourselves know how unlawful it is for a Jew to associate with or to visit anyone of another nation, but God has shown me that I should not call any person common or unclean. A Worthy Man? Act 10:22 ESV And they said, "Cornelius, a centurion, an upright and God-fearing man, who is well spoken of by the whole Jewish nation, was directed by a holy angel to send for you to come to his house and to hear what you have to say." Luk 7:4-5 ESV And when they came to Jesus, they pleaded with him earnestly, saying, "He is worthy to have you do this for him, (5) for he loves our nation, and he is the one who built us our synagogue."
  6. 6. An Unworthy Authority Luk 7:6-8 ESV And Jesus went with them. When he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to him, "Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof. (7) Therefore I did not presume to come to you. But say the word, and let my servant be healed. (8) For I too am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me: and I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."  The Centurion Knew Jesus  Man is not Worthy  A man of Authority knew the Authority of Jesus
  7. 7. A Worthy Authority Do You Know Jesus? Joh 14:6-7 ESV Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (7) If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him."
  8. 8. A Worthy Authority Do You Know Jesus? No Man is Worthy Romans 3:10; 23 Rev 5:3-5 ESV And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it, (4) and I began to weep loudly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it. (5) And one of the elders said to me, "Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals."
  9. 9. A Worthy Authority Do You Know Jesus? No Man is Worthy 2Co 5:21 ESV For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. The Authority of Jesus Mat 28:18-20 ESV And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. (19) Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (20) teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
  10. 10. Talk About Faith Luk 7:9-10 ESV When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turning to the crowd that followed him, said, "I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith." (10) And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the servant well. Mat 7:28-29 ESV And when Jesus finished these sayings, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, (29) for he was teaching them as one who had authority, and not as their scribes.
  11. 11. Talk About Faith Mat 8:10-13 ESV When Jesus heard this, he marveled and said to those who followed him, "Truly, I tell you, with no one in Israel have I found such faith. (11) I tell you, many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, (12) while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (13) And to the centurion Jesus said, "Go; let it be done for you as you have believed." And the servant was healed at that very moment. Mar 16:15-16 ESV And he said to them, "Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. (16) Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
