Jesus is unique.  There is no one in history like him.

HIS UNIQUENESS

1.

Jesus is the DIVINE Son of God. 

The Bible describes Jesus as

the radiance of God’s glory

and the exact representation

of God’s being.

 "Anyone who has seen me  

  has seen the Father.

 

JOHN 14:9

"... all things have been created  

  through him & for him."  

 

COLOSSIANS 1:15,16

2.

Jesus is DIVINE, but was also fully HUMAN.   

He lived as people were designed to live; 

in an exciting adventure following God!

Everywhere he went,

broken people flocked to Jesus. 

 

His disciples gave up everything just to spend time with him. 

 

His female followers ignored the expectations of their society just to listen to him. 

 

To this day, Jesus is still captivating the world!

"You were the Word at the beginning

One with God the Lord Most High

Your hidden glory in creation

Now revealed in you our Christ"

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL NAME  - HILLSONG WORSHIP

God loves the world.

Jesus is the way we can have a relationship with him. 

HIS MISSION

JESUS IS THE WORLD'S SAVIOUR

The BIBLE tells us that everyone

has sinned & deserves to be separated from God. However, despite all the wrong things we have done, God loves us & wants to have a relationship with us.

 

JESUS died on a cross to make a way for us; to pay the penalty for our sins. He then rose again giving each of us the hope of eternal life. 

 "Father, forgive them, 

   for they do not know 

 what they are doing.

 

LUKE 23:34

 "After he had provided 

 purification for sins, 

 he sat down at the right hand 

 of the Majesty in heaven ..." 

 

HEBREWS 1:3

 "If you declare with your mouth, 

   'Jesus is Lord,'  

 & believe in your heart that God 

 raised him from the dead 

   you will be saved."  

 

ROMANS 10:9

 "I am the way & the truth  

   & the life.  

  No one comes to the Father  

  except through me."  

 

LUKE 23:34

HOW DO WE RESPOND TO JESUS' DEATH & RESURRECTION?

The BIBLE tells us that our

adventure with God begins when we are saved by

grace through faith.

 

GRACE is simply a gift you don't deserve. God offers us his FORGIVENESS as a free gift. 

 

However, like any gift, God's grace must be RECEIVED.  By putting our FAITH in JESUS we trust that he will save us from sin & give us everlasting life.     

To receive God's gift of forgiveness

& start the adventure of following Jesus,

please pray something like this:

Dear JESUS,

 

I realize that I have done so many things

that are wrong & I am sorry. 

 

Thank you for dying on the cross

& suffering the penalty for my sins. 

 

Thank you for rising from the dead

& giving me the hope of eternal life. 

 

I trust in you to take away my sins. 

 

Bring me into a never-ending relationship with God

& lead me every step of my life. 

 

Amen.

"There is good news for the captive,

Good news for the shamed.

There is good news for the one who walked away.

There is good news for the doubter,

The one religion failed.

For the good Lord has come to seek & save."

 

RESCUER (GOOD NEWS)  - REND COLLECTIVE

We can follow Jesus. His Spirit lives in us.

HIS LIFE

1.

There’s only been one person who is capable of living the Christian life, & that person

is JESUS.

 

Being a CHRISTIAN is not about looking at Jesus & trying to do what he did. Rather, it is allowing him to live his life in you

every day.

 "I no longer live,

  but Christ lives in me."  

 

GALATIANS  2:20

"God's love has been poured out

  into our hearts through   

  the Holy Spirit,  

  who has been given to us."  

 

ROMANS 5:5

2.

The moment you became a follower of JESUS, he came to live within you through the HOLY SPIRIT.  

 

This is an another gift from God

that makes each day an exciting adventure!

3.

Being a Christian is not about 'thinking smarter' or 'trying harder'; it is JESUS living his life

in you.  

 

We TRUST that Jesus has all of the love, peace and patience that we need & receive HIS ability for every opportunity.

 "I can do all things"  

  through Christ who

  strengthens me."  

 

PHILIPPIANS  4:13

To ask Jesus to live his life in you 

& to receive by faith his ability

to live out the adventure of following him please pray the following:

JESUS,

 

I know that only you can live

the Christian life as it should be lived. 

 

I put you first in my life

& ask you to fill me with your Spirit.  

 

In this moment, I need you to express your ______

(e.g. LOVE,  PEACE,  PATIENCE,  KINDNESS,  GENTLENESS,  PURITY, SELF-CONTROL, etc ...) 

 

I receive your ability as a free gift of grace

through faith.  

 

Thank you for giving me the ability to follow you

 

Amen.

"And what a love we've found,

Death can't hold us down!

 

We shout it out,

'We're alive cause You're alive!'"
