Raised Up with Christ
Because of what God has done in Jesus Christ, you may live with an eternal, heavenly perspective. In Raised Up With Christ, your faith will be built as you see in God's Word that you have been raised up to be anchored in Christ and called to be a prophet, priest, and king in the temple of God - your body. Men must learn to live with an eternal perspective if they are going to be of any earthly good. You'll discover what it means to find your life hidden with Jesus Christ in God in Raised Up with Christ: Seeking the Things Above. Titles in the series, in both the CD and DVD version, are summarized below.
Raised Up with Christ in Heaven: An Eternal Perspective (2 parts)
The hope of the gospel is that you can live life now in the presence of God, in fellowship with Him, and according to the truth revealed in Christ. You can live in heaven now! The outstanding difference between men who know Jesus and everyone else is that they live by looking at the things which are not seen, the things which are eternal. From what perspective do you live each day?
Raised Up with Christ to Live Anchored in Christ (2 parts)
Everyone lives on what they believe the gospel to be; it's their foundation. Living Anchored in Christ reveals why the gospel is the power of God for salvation-a salvation that's much more than "going to heaven when you die." The gospel taught and lived anchors us in the Solid Rock through the storms of life. You'll learn the four words that sum what it means to live with Jesus Christ, and they are?
Raised Up with Christ as Prophets
One aspect of the life and ministry of Jesus to be expressed through a man to his family is that of a prophet-one who speaks for God. When God raised us up to be with Jesus in the heavenlies, He did so that He might express His Word and truth of the Kingdom through His people. Learn how you can express this aspect of Jesus' life in your world.
Raised Up with Christ as Kings
Did you know that if you are a believer in Jesus Christ that you are a king? Jesus has conquered your kingdom and raised you up to serve Him as the King of kings. We've been given the honor to reign with Christ in heaven and advance His kingdom on earth. What does it mean for Jesus to be the King of kings? What does this look like now?
Raised Up with Christ as Suffering Servants
One of the most difficult truths for the first century Christians to grasp was that Jesus could be the King and suffer. How do kings exercise dominion and suffer at the same time? Did you know that you have been raised up with Christ so you can reign with Him through suffering as a servant of others - just as He did? You'll learn how God is glorified as you reign with Him as a suffering servant.
Raised Up with Christ as Priests
We're told in Revelation 1:6 that God has made believers to be a kingdom of priests to His God and Father. What does it look like to be a priest of God on the earth in the 21st century? Since most are unfamiliar with the priesthood, this message unpacks the tremendous privilege and honor to serve as a priest in God?s temple, your body, each day.
Raised Up with Christ as His Temple
"Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own" (1 Corinthians 6:19)? God first tabernacled among us in the body God gave Him through Mary and the Holy Spirit. But now, He makes His presence known in the body God gives Him through His Spirit - your body. Do you know what sacrifices please God and bring Him great joy?
