“Easter Grace”

Jason Mayhall, Lead Pastor – Romans 3:6-11

Redemption Bible Church celebrates Easter with a look at the concept of grace, led by Pastor Jason Mayhall. We see that we must go beyond just accepting the facts of Jesus’ life and death. We must internalize the idea that, through Christ’s sacrifice, we also died and were reborn. We died to sin and were reborn with a chance to live a life that is not selfish. As we look at Jesus’ death and resurrection, we should look at our lives, ask whether we will live our lives as a slave to sin or whether we too will be resurrected in spirit. Will we live a life centered on our own desires, or will we go above and beyond to help those around us? If we are reborn, we will know that God will show us grace. We can live a life with no fear as the Lord is our protector. Trusting in God is a reminder of our hope for a new life.

Identity Theft – Finding Who You Are In Christ (Week 12): “I Am Forgiven”

Jason Mayhall, Lead Pastor – Ephesians 4:25-32

Redemption Bible Church celebrates Easter Sunday, led by Pastor Jason Mayhall. Continuing the sermon series entitled “Identity Theft,” Pastor Jason explains how it is common for us to become angry and frustrated, but we can look at the lessons offered by Paul the Apostle to overcome those emotions. In Ephesians 4, Paul shares six commands for an angry person that can help us change the way we live. For example, conflict resolution is best handled face-to-face rather than through gossip. We should focus on building up others with our words rather than tearing them down. The challenge is that to really change and abide by the six commands, requires us to recognize the gift of forgiveness we’ve been granted by the grace of God. Once we accept that we’ve been forgiven for our sins, by God, we can see that we’ve been enabled by Christ to forgive others.
