This weekend kicks off ELEVATE 1 Sunday @ 9:30 a.m. Randy Shurr and I will be leading you to discover a new and better relationship with Jesus. We are going to start from the beginning. Whether your a new Christian, or if you need to refresh your relationship with Jesus, you need to know, WHO IS JESUS?
What are we starting here? Your understanding of Jesus determines your commitment level. If you have a casual understanding of Jesus - you will have a casual relationship with Him. If you think that Jesus is a social reformer, then your relationship with Him will be about social reform. If you think that Jesus is mean spirited and out to get you, then your relationship with Him will be one filled with anger and resentment. Get it?
Jesus asked the disciples who they thought He was, you can read about this in Mark 8, and Peter said that He was the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Good answer!! But then in a few verses, when Jesus tells them that He has to give His life for our sins, Peter rebukes Him. Bad Idea!! Peter knew who Jesus was, but He didn't understand who Jesus was. Get it?
So that is where we are going to begin this Sunday @ 9:30 a.m. Who is Jesus!!
