Jesus and You Reflect God’s Image

Scripture: Colossians 3:8-11 & 1 Corinthians 15:51-54 I. You reflect God’s image by remembering that you have taken off Adam. A. In Colossians 3:8-9 we see commands for the church to put away angry attitudes and the bad words that come with rage. If Jesus lives in you, your words will necessarily change. The commands of the New Testament are…

Jesus and You are Shepherds

Scripture: 1 Peter 2:25 & 1 Peter 5:1-4 I. Jesus and you compassionately gather the strays. A. In 1 Peter 2:24 we read the Good News of the Gospel. Jesus died on the cross for our sins. Then in verse 25 we read about the title Peter had for Jesus: the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. Jesus leads you like…

Jesus and You are Glorified

Scripture:  John 12:23-33 and John 17:20-26 I. Jesus and you are glorified in death. A. Jesus says in John 12:23, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.” The word glory means heavy or weighty. Christ’s glory, His greatness, was about to be revealed. How?  “‘And I, when I am lifted up from the earth,…

Jesus and You Return from Exile

Luke 3:4-6 & Acts 9:1-5 I. Jesus is risen and has been restored from exile to God. A. When God’s people sin, God often disciplines with exile away from Him and the Promised Land. Deuteronomy 28:36: “The Lord will bring you and your king whom you set over you to a nation that neither you nor your fathers have known. And there you shall serve other…

Jesus and You Are on a Mission

Isaiah 42:1-7 & Acts 26:16-23 I. Jesus and you have a mission to open people’s eyes to see Jesus. A. Isaiah 42:1 is a prophecy about a coming servant. Who is this servant? We find out when Jesus is baptized in Matthew 3:16-17: “And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to…

Eternal Life with Jesus

John 20:1-10 & John 6:47-59 I. You can be resurrected by trusting that Christ died for you. A. We read the details of Jesus’ historical resurrection in John 20. It was what John had seen and not seen in Jesus’ tomb that made him believe that Jesus rose from the dead (John 20:8). In John 6:4 we see that Jesus does…

Jesus and You are King Priests

Revelation 1:4-6 I. Jesus and you are kings who make God known to the world. A. The seven churches of Asia (vs. 4) faced the hostility of Roman power and the seduction of Roman wealth. But their main task was the same as our main task: to make disciples. To make God known in the…

Jesus and You are Redeemed

1 Corinthians 1:30 & Romans 8:18-25 I. You have hope that you will have freedom from death. A. Jesus and you are both redeemed (1 Corinthians 1:30). Jesus did not need to be redeemed from sin. What did Jesus need to be set free from? Death. Hebrews 13:20: “Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord…

You and Jesus Are Holy

1 Corinthians 1:30 & Romans 6:1-14 I. You must be holy as a Christian because you are united with Christ. A. Our union with Christ as Christians is stated in 1 Corinthians 1:30. Sanctification in this verse means holiness. Jesus is holy, and because we are united with Jesus, we are holy. The Christians in Corinth had already been…
