Who Do You Say I Am?
God’s Truth Reigns—John 14:5-6 God’s Word is true, correct, real, and reliable. We believe in the one, absolute, and unfailing truth; God. God is sovereign, all-knowing, all-present, and is the only truth. Christ, God’s flesh on earth, is the way, the truth, and the life. Therefore, all scripture is the true and only authority. We will teach His Word, hide it in our hearts and let His truth reign in our lives. Sunday, April 12, 2020 Life Transformation—Romans 12:1-2 When we hold God’s truth in our lives, we should (as an act of obedience) present ourselves as a living sacrifice, being transformed by the renewing of our mind. We need to daily understand that our identity is in Christ. Our primary focus should be to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, and mind. As our heart is lined up to God’s standard, our reflection should be of His character. May we allow God’s Word, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to transform our heart to walk in His character. Faith Community—Eph 1:3-14, 5:16-17 We are a church, composed of people from various backgrounds and life experiences. We all have a common thread. We are all sinners in need of God’s gracious gift of salvation. We have been covered by His unexplainable grace. In contrast to the world, a faith community is a place for us and our families to remember who we are in Christ, to find refuge in the truth of His Word, to find renewed strength in His hope, and to remember and celebrate God’s character and works. It is our goal to provide an environment that helps build a relationship with God. Yet, our goal is to increase our community with those in an authentic relationship with God.

As we have traveled through Mark 1-6, we find people asking “Who is Jesus?” Some thought He was the ghost of John the Baptist. Others thought he was a prophet or Rabbi? Yet, the question remained, “Who is Jesus?” “Why did He come to this earth?” In our times, you might be asking “Who is Jesus?” Here’s what we know: Jesus came to save us from our sin. He conquered death, sin, and rose again. Even His own Father exalted Him to the highest rank for His work on the Cross. Our hope is that you will exalt Him too. Why did God the Father exalt Jesus, His Son, beyond all measures? #1— God exalted His own Son, because Jesus ____________ ________________________________. Philippians 2:6-7 How did Jesus do this? • Jesus was Matt.1:21 • Jesus lived on this • Jesus died Isaiah 9:6-7 Mark 1:9-11 Mark 15:37 #2— God exalted His own Son because Jesus Christ _________ ________________________________.
