13 August 2017 - What Is Christianity - Reverend Canon J. John Sermon Notes Online - New Creation Church Sermon Notes Online
The church is an intergalactic enterprise!
Christianity is an invitation. It's not a demand, it's an offer.
It's very important to reply to this invitation while you're still alive.
We don't know whether we will still be alive tomorrow. We can only be sure that we have today.
John 3:16 - Who is the invitation from, who is the invitation to, and what is it about? This verse answers these questions.
If you ask the wrong questions, you can never get the right answers.
The invitation is from God, delivered to us from Jesus.
The invitation is to every single one of us.
Some people say that Christianity is a crutch. Everyone is a broken person - isn't it great to be able to lean on Jesus while He is putting us back together?
According to the Bible, the length of a good life is threescore and 10 years which is 70 years.
That's just a blip on the eternal screen.
Christianity is forgiveness from the past, a new life here today and hope for the future.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 NIV)
1. Forgiveness from the past
Governments are working to treat the problems in the world which symptoms, but what is the root cause of every single problem in the world today?
The heart of the human problem is the problem of the human heart.
Our hearts have dis-ease and it's out of the heart that seeds of evil are spread and produce all sorts of problems in the world today.
The sinful things that we have done, said and thought before we were saved disconnected us from God.
Jesus dying on the cross is like a blank cheque signed by His shed blood to pay for the sin debt of the world.
Jesus came to clean us, restore us and to reframe us just like an old painting.
2. New Life Here Today
The word Christian has the word Christ in it. If you remove Christ from the word Christian, you're left with Ian.
Ian is not going to help you or change your life.
Many believers know Ian better than they know Christ.
To be Christian means to be connected to Christ.
To be a Christian means to have Christ in your car.
Is Jesus in the driver's seat of your car?
Are you a backseat driver to Jesus?
When you've got Jesus in the driving seat of your life, His Holy Spirit will produce the fruits of the Spirit in your life.
If we're not producing these, then we need to reposition Jesus to the driver's seat of our lives.
Revelation 3:20 - Jesus is knocking at the door of our lives. Will we open the door to Him?
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” (Revelation 3:20 NIV)
3. Hope for the Future
Many people see their future as a hospital gown - they think that they're not well-covered.
You can have hope for a good future as a Christian.
When we have received the invitation from Jesus to become a Christian, we become the invitation.

* Please Take Note: These sermon notes are not official New Creation Church (NCC) or Pastor Joseph Prince sermon notes. These sermon notes are not affiliated with NCC or Pastor Prince.
I highly recommend purchasing Pastor Prince's sermons on his mobile app even after you read these notes as I may have missed out something he shared and the overall experience is definitely different when you listen to him preaching directly!
Use these notes as a revision guide instead of solely depending on them!

These sermon notes are independently-compiled by me, and I'm just a loyal and regular attendee of the the church's Sunday services, and I feel led to take detailed personal sermon notes of Pastor Prince's anointed messages to share them with the world, which desperately needs the true word of God and the original gospel of grace.
I feel blessed to be able to attend Pastor Joseph Prince's services in person, and would like to help everyone who isn't able to attend in person, to get hold of the messages as soon as it is preached!
