Clayton Jennings Ministry
Since of the historic effect of the life and ministry of Jesus', his life's work was from a number of perspectives on scandal after another.
Case in point, the lowly birth. His mom Mary a teenage mother and a virgin ... seriously? The|story of the immaculate conception redefines "crisis pregnancy."
Let's get into his public ministry. He was "inactive" as far as being beyond the general public eye for the first thirty years of his life. Bible does not have many referrals to his childhood or teenage years, conserve for the fact we understand he impressed many spiritual leaders in the temple at a young age (Luke 2:46 -50).
Jesus performed numerous miracles. From turning water into wine to recovery a male born blind. The immediate treating of ten individuals who were plagued by leprosy. The raising of Lazarus from the dead, the feeding of thousands with a couple of fish and a few loaves of bread offered by a young boy. Not to discuss that reality that Peter walked on water. The spiritual leaders of the day might not discuss these miracles. And due to the fact that they could not comprehend it, they could not let it stand. They needed to make an example of this man who dines with sinners and carries out works of marvel.
They asked themselves- "Who Exactly who is this male? And where does he derive such mystical but irrefutable powers?"
The biggest scandal of Jesus' life isn't really what he did. It's is what he stated ... about himself.
" Extremely really, I inform you, anyone who hears my word and thinks him who sent me has immortality, and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death to life." John 5:24
" Those who eat my flesh and consume my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is real food and my blood holds true beverage." clayton jennings John 6:54 -55.
" I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never stroll in darkness but will have the light of life." John Clayton Jennings 8:12.
" I am the method, the truth and the life. NO ONE pertains to the Father other than through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous declarations like this would get any male or woman nailed to a tree in an uncomfortable death sentence. And a criminal's death is exactly what Jesus got. Jesus was completely beaten, tortured and humiliated completely view of the leaders of the Jewish religion. Those very Clayton Jennings same people in power believed that the scandal died with Jesus. But they did unknown the whole story.
Three days later on, never ever mind the truth that armed guards were placed right outside the tomb of Jesus (and the truth that the rock in front of the tomb was more bouldered size than anything else) Jesus' burial place was found empty. Therefore for 40 days after his resurrection the scandal of Jesus continued. He advised his disciples to continue the scandal by taking fortunately of the best scandal ever told to all countries.
Fortunately is a story of the scandalous, wreckless love of God, for people who rebel, take him for approved and deal with each other inadequately. The bright side is that we don't get what we are worthy of. We get Clayton Jennings grace.
