From Victim to Victor October 11, 2009 From Victim to Victor Psalm 22:1-2; Job 23:16-17 Sermon Synopsis: From Victim to Victor serves as an introduction and an invitation to the Lord’s Table. Last week during the dedication of our Restore the House Projects we erected an Ebenezer (1 Samuel 7:12, “rock of hope”) made from the tools and supplies used in the project. On top of the construction platform we raised a cross. The renovations were not an end within themselves, just a platform for the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The cross of Christ means a great deal to us. It is the focus of our worship center inside and out. The cross represents the suffering and death of Jesus of Nazareth. He was the victim of those who wanted to silence his message. When Jesus rose from the grave he became the victor. We gather at the Lord’s Table to remember his suffering and celebrate his victory. God was not defeated by the worse that man could do to Jesus. Instead of defeat God used it as an occasion to bring redemption to all of creation. Salvation is the finished work of God the Father through Jesus Christ the Son as revealed through the continuing work of the Holy Spirit. Jesus has issued an invitation to whoever will come. Jesus invites you to take him into your body as bread and drink the cup of the new covenant established in his death and life everlasting. Scripture References (NIV): Psalm 22:1-15, Job 23:1-9, 16-17
