Pastor Andrew Russell uses bible passages from Acts Chapter One, 1. Corinthians Chapter 15 and John Chapter 20 and talks about the evidence of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There is the heavily guarded tomb and then there are over 500 witnesses who have seen the risen Christ. Believing in the resurrection of Jesus Christ is an important step for salvation because without the resurrection there is no eternal life and Christianity would be like any other religion.
Pastor Andrew Russell gives an overview about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The bible readings are from Matthew 27, Mark 15; Luke 23 and John 19. It shows God’s love for His creation and the obedience of Jesus Christ to be a sacrifice for our sins. John 3:15-16 says: “That whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Pastor Andrew Russell preaches on Colossians 1:12-14 and explains the following: God qualifies us only through the finished work of the Savior. Apart from God’s grace through Jesus Christ, all people would be qualified only to receive His wrath. The believer’s spiritual liberation by God from Satan’s kingdom, which, in contrast to the realm of light with truth and purity, is the realm of darkness (Luke 22:53) with only deception and wickedness.
Pastor Andrew Russell preaches on Colossians 1:15-19 and explains the Supremacy of Christ. Often in our lives, Christ is marginalized. He often isn’t first: schoolwork, hobbies, or family commonly take first place. In these verses, Paul gives us reasons why Christ should be first in our lives and in the entire world. He talks about how special Christ is and why he must be preeminent—first in our lives.
Pastor Andrew Russell preaches on John 8:12-30. Jesus declares before the Pharisees that He is the light of the world and that His Father is God Almighty. But He receives only unbelief and mockery. Living in darkness leads to blindness and the same applies to the spiritual life.
