Pastor Nadeem continues preaching sermon series “What Sort of Man is This” and in this sermon focuses on Mark 1: 21-28 and talk about Jesus’ authority as the teacher. In this text the Jewish congregation in Capernaum was surprised at his sermon because Jesus spoke as an authority and didn’t try to prove his points by quoting others—so forthright, so confident—not quibbling and quoting like the religion scholars. Scribes spoke ABOUT God, but Jesus spoke FOR God. Pastor Nadeem teaches how can submitting to Jesus’ authority as the teacher change our lives and help us grow in our relationship to Jesus?

Christians, who belong to Jesus Christ should be the people that have great joy in our lives by default. Just imagine if others saw lives and coveted the joy and came to us wondering and wanting to have what we have. The Mega JOY! But the fact of the matter is that for many Christians this JOY is a fantasy. In the sermon, while pastor Nadeem teaches and explains the original setting of the Inn and Manger or stable in Jesus time, which were very different than what we see today in the nativity scenes, he talks about the source of true joy and that how we can receive and experience that joy in our lives.
