The Apostles’ Creed (Part 3) By Matt Chandler — #SuperSermons

As is the natural course of life, things devolve and deteriorate over time. Because of the influence and presence of sin, everything is in a perpetual state of decay. And for all our technological advances, death is still undefeated.

The Apostles’ Creed

Sadly, the same can often be said of Christianity. We often forget or neglect our true purpose and devolve into settling into fixing lives instead of seeing them resurrected by the gospel. Much of today’s “preaching” is defined by fluffy, feel-good betterment that seeks to motivate and drive people to get better.

But that’s certainly not the case with today’s sermon. Here, Matt Chandler delivers the third in a series expounding upon the Apostles’ Creed. Speaking from Matthew 16, Chandler expertly exalts Jesus Jesus is a tender King. Christ isn’t a tyrant; He’s a ferociously gracious sovereign.

And He’s the best King, mind you, because He’s not afraid to be among His people. Our God is not an idle God who sits on His hands as His people destroy themselves in chaos. Our God is not afraid to get His hands dirty, reaching into our filth, our mess, and drawing us to Himself. Citing Chandler:

“Christianity is not defined by its ivory-towered cleanliness but by its brokenhearted dirtiness.”

The Adelphotes Network by TheMajestysMen.com
