Jesus came because…

Sunday Service

Jesus came

  • because it was the father’s will
  • to fulfil scriptures
  • to save sinners
  • to reveal the father to us
  • to save sinners
  • therefore, to die
  • so we might have a right relationship with God & eternal life

“Are you still going to church?”

  • We battle within ourselves to ask this question
  • But this question turns a conversation from mere pleasantries to caring for people
  • On a scale from 0 to 100:
    • 0 = Chicken
    • 1 = Me asking someone if they are still going to church
    • 1 = Me asking someone round for a coffee
    • 1 = Me drawing a diagram for someone
    • 1 = Pretty much anything God asks me to do
    • 100 = Dying on a cross to save the world

Celebrate Jesus coming to us

  • Christmas in your community
  • This Christmas, do something special for your community, your neighbours, a workmate, a friend… you choose!
  • Invite for a BBQ, dessert or bake for them
  • Take them out for coffee
  • Do it anytime in the week
  • Big or small, plan it, pray for it and do it!

Accountability

  • Stan will help his neighbour Tony
  • James will buy a Bible for his co-worker Venu

John 17:3-5

  • And this is the way to have eternal life – to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.
  • I brought glory to you here on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.
  • Now, Father, bring me into the glory we shared before the world began.
