I’m a Christian because I love Jesus. I’m fascinated by Jesus. Because I’m blown away by Jesus. And I’m not a pastor because of all the perks, or the pay, or the privileges. I’m a pastor because I believe with all of my heart that there is no greater honor than being able to help people meet Jesus, become like Jesus and join Jesus on his mission in the world. For me, it’s all about Jesus. That’s why I’m excited about this series. Join us today as Craig launches our “Real Jesus” series to kick off 2018!
As we saw last week, Jesus says he can satisfy our deepest longings and make us agents of transformative hope. And I asked the question “do you believe that?” And as we said, there are three possible answers: yes, no or I don’t know. Today, we’re going to see Jesus mostly interact with a group of people whose answer was “no.” They didn’t believe Jesus was who he said he was or that he could do what he said he could do.
Jesus came to earth on a rescue mission. He’s not here to teach us…he’s here to rescue us. Which means that we have to decide whether or not we’re going to let him do it. That’s the key question: Will we let Jesus rescue us?
Insecurity was beginning to leak for the religious leaders in Jerusalem. They had to find a way to get Jesus to break. The tide had shifted and the crowds were actually responding to Jesus. So, the gloves come off in Chapter 8 of John. They know that something is special with this man, who calls Himself the Messiah, something supernatural. But their pride, their traditions, their religious works, and insecurities roadblock the pathway to the King. Join us this week as Kip Nanninga takes us deeper into the Real Jesus.
Join us this weekend as Craig unpacks two things that the church has not always done a great job of acknowledging. The first is just that doubt and faith are not mutually exclusive. The second thing I want to get straight right from the beginning is that a healthy approach to dealing with doubt can lead to greater faith.
Listen, we have never met someone that was truly experiencing the excessive life that was not living missionally. Every time we meet someone that seemed to be experiencing the excessive life, it was immediately clear that they were living missionally: that they were other-center and outward-facing, passionate about seeing God glorified, the good news of Jesus shared, lost people saved and saved people transformed. Join us this week to learn about God’s plan for our excessive life and how we can invest in that.
