Sunday School
Who We Are In Christ - continued

Colossians 3:3-4  For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.  When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
Our spirit man is new but our flesh is old
We have the favor of God
We are His righteous, His workmanship

Ephesians 2:19   Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household.
Our citizenship is in heaven

1 Thessalonians 5:5   You are all sons of the light and sons of the day.  We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
As sons of the light, we should allow our light to so shine as Christ-like

Philippians 3:20   But our citizenship is in heaven.  And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ

Note: Romans 8:35-37  Who can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or anguish or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
As it is written:  Because of You we are being put to death all day long; we are counted as sheep to be slaughtered.
No, in all these things we are more than victorious through Him who loved us.

Colossians 2:9  For the entire fullness of God's nature dwells bodily in Christ!

Luke 2:27-32
V27 Guided by the Spirit, he entered the temple complex. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to perform for Him what was customary under the law, V28 Simeon took Him up in his arms, praised God, and said:  V29 "Now, Master, You can dismiss Your slave in peace, as You promised. V30 For my eyes have seen Your salvation. V31 You have prepared {it} in the presence of all peoples - V32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles and glory to Your people Israel.

Subject:  "Can You See"

  • A carol is an expression of religious joy
Snippet from message...

  • Simeon was promised that he would see the Messiah before he died.
  • Simeon's faith became sight when Mary and Joseph brought the baby Jesus into the temple.

Where there is no vision, the people will perish.
God's ways and thoughts are not ours. 
Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (Ephesians 3:20)

Goodbyes for the end of the year, 2012
