Who Is Jesus?

Jesus himself asked his disciples. People across the world wrestle with this question today. C.S. Lewis declared there were only three possible options – Lord, Liar or Lunatic. Who do you say Jesus is? What does that mean for your life every day, what does that mean for the mission of the church in the world? Who is Jesus?

Scripture: Luke 9:18-22

 

An Important Conversation and Reminder

Actions speak louder than words don’t they? Jesus is asked the question, “are you the One we’ve been waiting for?” They wanted to know if He was indeed the Rescuer/Delivered that the Old Testament spoke about.

Jesus’ response is: look at what I’ve done.

Scripture: Luke 7:18-35

Will The Real Jesus Please Stand Up?

Who was Jesus or what was He really like?

Jesus is presented in an assortment of ways: a healer, a sage/wise person, an advocate for social justice, a progressive, a liberal, a conservative, a mystic, a prophet, a teacher, a fanatical Jew, a fake/phony, a philosopher.

Let’s investigate and discover who the real Jesus is as we walk through The Gospel According to the Luke.

Scripture: Luke 1: 1-4

 

Jesus + Nothing = Everything

Our confidence, trust and hope should be in the person of Jesus not what we bring to the table (i.e. our spiritual resumes). The Apostle Paul had an impressive resume but eventually came to a point where he realized he needed to trust and rest solely in Jesus not in his performance.

What are you trusting in? What are you resting in? Where is your hope?

Scripture: Philippians 3:1-11
