The sermon named after Jesus is a message that is an inspiration of hope for our every day lives including the promise that we can hold to from Jesus of eternal life in Heaven. John 3:16-21 is read and taught, centralizing on the assurance to a sinner that Jesus did not come to condemn the world, but to give hope and to save it.
The messages throughout this powerful sermon are based on the immensity of love that Jesus has for His Father and children. It also includes facts about the Bible such as when the entire Old Testament is pieced together, it yields a picture of Jesus. Jesus is written about in every book in the Bible, and Jesus is every Word in the Bible, one and the same.
Scripture describes Jesus as many things including being a mediator between God the Father and us, and that with His sacrifice on the cross, the veil has been torn in the temple and we now have access to the throne room of God. Many heartfelt and inspiring messages are delivered from the speaker, including that Jesus is love, Jesus is always love, Jesus will always love us, and the love of Jesus is never determined or changed by our outlook, situations, or circumstances. Jesus is love.
The speaker gives a testimony of how for most of his life he kept sinning, and Jesus kept coming at Him with His love and never gave up on him. The mercy and love of Jesus was the inspiration that gave James Rathman the will to spread the hope and love of Jesus for the rest of his life.
The sermon breaks down 'life' into three actions in becoming as rich as possible right now and for the eternal soul and spirit. 1. Rebuke evil
2. Start and build a relationship with Jesus
3. Lead others to Jesus
The sermon continues with the teaching of a basis on how to lead others to Jesus.
The Bible states that all must be done with prayer. And through prayer a servant of God doesn't necessarily have to be present to lead someone to Jesus, by calling on the Spirit of truth to come upon that person's heart. When present, a servant would first want to establish 'a basis' of where an unsaved person is at or not at pertaining to their outlook of Jesus. Scripture tells us with many examples that with this basis, we are then to build faith by testifying of our relationship with Jesus, and or quote or read God's Word. Point A is where someone is at, to Point B, surrendering their life to Jesus. The variables are endless, and this could also be a short or ongoing process of years.
The sermon ends with a powerful prayer of hope and salvation through Jesus Christ.
