It’s All About Jesus

August 6, 2010


I received an email from my friend Richard Montoya today.   He sent it to several brothers to encourage them in the Lord.  It was his summary of a great message he heard that was just too good for him to keep to himself.  Read the very striking, Christ-exalting, uplifting truth from that message below.

But while we’re here, let me just say that this is a good example of having fellowship in the Word.  First, you get blessed.  Then you pass on the blessing to others.  It might be something you read, heard in a Bible study, or listened to online.  But it struck you, and one way or another, you pass it on to others.  Maybe with an email, with a phone call, or during a chat when you’re hanging out at the park with friends from your Sunday school class. 

Two questions for you:  Are you in the Word?  How are you passing on the blessing?  “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom” ~ Colossians 3:16

Here’s a link to the sermon audio of the Resolved Conference mentioned in the email.  Read Rich’s email here:

Happy Friday Brothers,

I wanted to share this excerpt from a sermon I heard at the Resolved conference this year. Every time I hear these words it brings one big Amen to my day.

* If I could summon any angel from heaven and draw them away from their heavenly gaze to speak to us, they would speak of Jesus

* If I could go to any saint above enjoying their heavenly reward and draw them away from their heavenly gaze, they would speak to us about Jesus

* If I could reach into the depths of hell and rescue someone from their eternal anguish and bring them to us here, they would speak of Jesus

* If the Holy Spirit himself to materialize and stand before us, according to John 14 the Holy spirit would speak to us of Jesus

* If God the Father were to condescend from His eternal throne and stand before us, He would speak of Jesus

* However, If the devil himself and any of his angels were to stand before us, they would want to speak of anything but Jesus. Or better yet,
they would like to speak of Jesus in an inaccurate, an untruthful way. They would as 1 John says, speak to us of another Jesus
