looking unto Jesus
Welcome to the recording of today’s message, Looking Unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, the One whose goings forth are of old, from everlasting, the One who calls us by name. Before that are two worship videos, Yet Not I and He Knows My Name. Bless you.
Looking Unto Jesus, Andy King, 8th January 2023:
Hebrews 12:2 ..looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Isaiah 43:1-3a But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
3 For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.
Welcome to the recording from today’s service. The message, brought by Matt, challenges us regarding the temporary nature of our lives on earth compared to the eternal citizenship in heaven we have as our hope in Jesus. Before that, there is a video of one of our songs from this morning’s service, Endless Hallulujah by Matt Redmond.
Here is the message: Where is your Focus? By Matt Petley
Philippians 3: 20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
Matthew 6:19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
