Hope everyone is enjoying the fall break. The Rock met as normal last night so we wanted to pass along the first sermon of our new series and some other things that are coming up.
"I AM" is our new series which simply continues the thought from our last series in a sense. So much of what we can know about God is seen through Jesus' life, ministry and teaching. Our last series was all about learning who God is. We learned that God is perfectly perfect, God is here, God knows, and God is able. I AM takes Jesus' 7 I AM statements and helps us see how Jesus is the one sent from the Father. That Jesus is actually claiming to be God in the flesh. This didn't sit well with everyone that heard. In fact it's safe to say that Jesus was ultimately killed because of statements like these. At the end of it all everyone must make a decision about Jesus Christ. Based on all He said and did he is either a liar, a lunatic or He is Lord.
If Jesus is a liar or a lunatic, we'd better run away from him, stranger danger. BUT....if Jesus is Lord and everything true, we'd better run towards him with all we've got. SO, what is your response to Jesus?
Last night we learned how Jesus is the bread of life. Ultimately meaning this, Jesus is our greatest need and our greatest fulfillment. Nothing satisfies more than Jesus.
Have a great end to your fall break and we'll see everyone Saturday night at the Hangout!
Why a blog?
A great way for parents and ministry to connect and continue the conversation of what's going on at The Rock.
