Summary :
Chuck- careful in the way that we live
b/c the world is watching
individual encounters with Jesus
water into wine
Nicodemus
jesus with the invalid at the pool
Jesus feeding the 5,000
Jesus with the woman at the well
Holy Spirit meeting with Paul
we have begun to see the message of Jesus
we have even noticed some of his methods of reaching different types of people in different situations
To regroup what we have learned through some of the Jesus encounters:
Jesus created
Jesus sustains
by His blood He redeems and santifies
He has come to establish His kingdom
it will be distinguished by His character and His priorities
there is hope for the hopeless
there is not light in the darkness
there is rest for the weary
and healing for both sick in body and in soul
the cross marks the satisfaction of the debt of sin
and whosoever may come
Constantly reminded that this is and has always been the message of God...
We have noticed that Jesus has a profound love for sinners
but as we continue to look at some of these encounters we will see that He is commited to relational ministry as well
in the investment in a few
When we see the whole picture we will notice that Jesus has a strategic balance of effort:
win the lost, build up believers, equip workers
Through relational investment Jesus also shows us another aspect of His encounters
Jesus modeled His life for us
In doing so He also modeled a pattern for us to follow in making disciples who make disciples

When we see the who picture we will notice that Jesus has a strategic balance of effort:
win the lost, build up believers, equip workers
the goal is that we will become fully trained
and be like Jesus
- He lived without sin
He lived with purpose from the Father
He sacrificed His life for the building of that purpose
He humbled Himself
How did He do that?
He spent regular time in prayer with the Father
He practiced obedience to the death of the cross
He relied on the power of the Holy Spirit
He knew the Word of God
He was intentional about His efforts
we may feel that this is impossible for us
because Jesus was and is God and we are not.
We can’t do what God does!
This is true - Jesus is fully God
But Jesus was also fully human
like us in every way except without sin
John 1:
The power of the resurrection energizes us to do anything and everything that God calls us to do!
It takes tremendous faith to give ourselves to the power that the resurrection provides
a. on seven occasions Jesus rebuked His disciples for LACK OF FAITH
b.
Jesus commands His disciples to simply “ASK”
John
look at the life of Peter
Peter started off kind of rough
quick to speak
even quicker to action - not always in a positive way
over time (even after Jesus resurrects) we see Peter’s rough edges smooth out
His character becomes more like Christ
His priorities become more like Christ
Peter went from a rough and unrefined fisherman to a powerful mouthpiece for the kingdom of God and a pillar for the early church!
We can do the same if we will spend enough time with Jesus!
So there are two things that I’d like for us to do today:
we know the power of influence
who in your life is leading you closer to Jesus?
who in your life are you truly and intentionally leading closer to Jesus?
not of faith yet
young in faith
who in your life is pulling you further from your faith and purpose?
look for your circles of influence and adjust as necessary
2. Identify the areas of your life that you have decided are impossible to change
I know Jesus didn’t ______ but I could never do that .
sinful
sleep around
get blasted after a long day
lose his cool
gossip a little
I know that Jesus DID _______ but I could never do that.
Intentional actions
lead others to faith
teach someone about God
