The Steadfastness of Jesus

Sermon by Pastor Mark
Scripture The Gospel According to Luke

9:51 And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,

Jesus Christ is the Son of God; He is the only Way to heaven; He never sinned; His blood sacrifice atoned for our sin; He is seated at the right hand of the Father.

Christ's will was to fulfill the will of the Father.
Challenge: As a Christian, be steadfast in what God has called you to do.

    1. In his steadfastness, Jesus carried the message of His divine love to all men. (Luke 4:43, John 10:15,16) I must tell others.

    2. He was steadfast in His suffering. Can we suffer with and for Him?

    3. We must be steadfast among ourselves as saints of God.

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. --I Corinthians 15:58

Puzzler: Why do we have such difficulty finding workers within the church? 80% of the work is done by 20% of the people.

The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few. --Jesus Christ
