Redeemer Presbyterian Church Sermons
Jesus is the final Word and ultimate truth of God. But if we don't listen to and accept God's final Word, we can't have a personal relationship with him. We have to adjust to God's finalities, just as he adjusted to ours by becoming human and dying for us. This understanding should melt our hearts and change our lives as we become more and more focused on God and the gospel.
How do we know that Christianity is true? There are two tests of any valid worldview - that it is intellectually credible and existentially satisfying. The main evidence for the truth of Christianity is Jesus Christ himself. If we look at the magnitude of Jesus' claims and the evidence of his life, we are led to the conclusion that Jesus is who he says he is.
God's Word is perfect and true, and we can measure everything by the standard of Scripture. God reveals himself to us through nature, through the written Scripture, and through Jesus' actions. In these ways God enables us to learn about him.
Near the end of his life, Joseph displays his hard-earned wisdom. He shows us that we need to leave all righting of wrongs to God; we must see God’s providing hand in man’s malice; and we must never repay evil with evil, but instead we must meet evil with forgiveness, and even affection.
