This is the sixth teaching in the series titled, “Knowing Jesus”. This teaching is titled, “Sermon On The Mount Introduction”, and looks at some foundational aspects of the Kingdom of God Jesus came teaching as to understand the Sermon on the Mount. The message focuses on the new birth and repentance that the Holy Spirit works in us that results in a new Father-Child relationship with God. Our entire Christian life needs to be understood and directed from the perspective of this new Father-child relationship.
In this message, “Upward, Forward And Onward”, Pastor Kenny explains what baptism means and then reminds us that we have already been raised with Christ and using Col 3:1-4 calls us to no longer be bound by our past; to no longer linger in the past but to now focus our attention in a new direction. We are to look upward to christ our king who reigns over us and look forward to our ultimate future when he returns for us and move onward with him in the things he is doing in and through us right now.
