Sermon of the week

The Greater One

By Ps Steve Maile

“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”

1 John 4:4

If we read the book of Ephesians, the key theme in it is, “in Christ.” Jesus was the One who paid the price so that we can be free from sin (and all the effects of it) from death and best of all He set us free so He can come and dwell in us. Ephesians 3:17-19 says, “that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” What an amazing truth! Christ dwelling in us and we can be filled with all the fullness of God and it’s all free!

We must believe God’s Word over our feelings; our feelings can many times mislead us and religious feelings hold us trapped into a religious concept about Jesus. Jesus will not fit any mind set, no matter what kind of orthodox the teaching is. External behaviour will not change you not matter how many times you try, only when Christ comes into our lives He begins to work in us from the inside out. He saves us, changes us, heals us and delivers us! The Greater One (Christ) is not religious, He is real! If we really saw Jesus we would be shocked because the Bible tells us that Jesus was the happiest man and the strongest leader who ever walked the earth.

If you have come to Jesus in repentance and asked Him to save you, then the Greater One is in you and wants to set you free, do not let the lies of the enemy and the sin of this life rob you from the Greater One within, He wants to take out the sin and let the Holy Spirit live within. If we stay with our cultural religious Jesus we could be limiting the true power inside us, the Greater One wants to live through you and put you in a life where you are doing a greater work and the Greater One is living in you through faith, not through works.

In John 14:12 we read, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” Jesus didn’t save anyone for them to live a boring innocuous life. The Greater One saved you for a greater purpose. The Greater One saved you to deliver you from yourself so that you can change this day and generation. There are a lot of us who need to know the Greater One more, because when you do, He will cause you to love more.

We have been called to go and share the love of Jesus with neighbours and friends and people on the streets. When you start going out and sharing the good news, the Greater One will be with you! Christ in you is the hope of glory!

Colossians 1:27 “To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
