Brent Ingersoll is the Lead Pastor at Kings Church in Atlantic Canada, one of the fastest growing Churches in the country. We highly recommend you listen to His full message here: Good News Series – Part 3: Jesus Rules
We are doing a collection of teachings we’re calling Good News, where we are exploring the gospel of Jesus and asking the question, “What makes the Gospel, this announcement that Jesus is Lord and that he is redeeming and restoring and reclaiming all things under his Lordship, such Good News?”
We looked already at the idea that God is with us, and that’s really good news. That our job is not to get to God, but God has got to us in Jesus Christ.
By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. – 1 John 4:9
Now we’re looking at this new idea in a message I am titling Jesus Rules. The idea of the authority or the supremacy of Jesus. Jesus has the title of Lord. He has the hands, the ability, the mastery of Lordship.
For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Philippians 2:9-11
Ultimately he has a disposition towards us that is good, that is benevolent, that is generous and loving. When we realize that we can surrender our full trust to him, and when we do surrender our full trust to him, the result is not anxiety, but peace. It’s not death, but life.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. – John 16:33
So, I pray that today you find and discover the lordship of Jesus. That you rest, not only in his power and his might, but his goodness. The Bible says, “Cast all your anxiety on him, for He cares for you”.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:7
