In the last two verses of John chapter eight, we saw Jesus make a bold proclamation of his true identity, After his claim to be “I AM,” the eternal God incarnate, the religious leaders become determined to end his life. This brings us to a turning point in the life of Jesus.

From this point forward, we see Jesus continue to reveal his true identity through His teachings and miracles. The religious leaders become more and more hostile towards him, as they look for a way and a time to end his life. They lack faith in his identity and mission, and their spiritual blindness keeps them from embracing Jesus as the promised Messiah.

We all encounter turning points in our lives. We come to a crossroads where we must decide: will we let our disillusionment, fear, guilt, pride or sin keep us from allowing Jesus to complete His work in us, or will we respond in complete faith and trust as Jesus shepherds us, and his life and love work through us?

In the Book of John, we see Jesus described by the people of his day simply as:
"The Nazarene,"
"the Carpenter,"
and "the Son of Mary and Joseph."

But John records many other descriptions of Jesus, as well.
Jesus is:
"The living Word," present at the dawn of time,
He is not just "A light," but "THE light," that darkness cannot extinguish.
He is a teacher of teachers,
a well of living water,
and the source of salvation for ALL of the people of the world.

Over the next few weeks, we will see that Jesus is
the one who gives victory over death.
He is one with the Father.
He is our provider.
He is... the Great I AM.

At the heart of the Good News is an invitation to be a citizen of God’s kingdom. In the book of John we see that the invitation was hand-delivered by Jesus, the Son of God himself! The invitation is not exclusive—in fact, it is made to anyone and everyone that will accept it. The offer has been made to those that have grown up thinking that their right to enter the kingdom is hereditary, or otherwise earned, and to those that never expected to be invited. To accept this invitation to take part in the kingdom, we need only believe that the herald is truly the heir.

The gospel of John captures narratives and interactions that displayed the lifestyle and heart of Jesus. From the opening, we capture just how important Jesus is in understanding the heart of God and responding to him in relationship. As we discover just how Jesus lived and loved, we can begin to follow his example in our own lives. As we do, we also reflect the heart of God and express his love to the world around us.

Every parent chooses the name of their child carefully. The list of possibilities often includes the names of beloved family members and friends. Sometimes, a name is selected because the parents like the way it sounds, or the manner in which it rolls off the tongue. Another criteria used in naming children is the 'trendiness" of the name (the most popular names for baby boys and girls born in the United States over the past year were “Liam” and “Emma,” respectively).

Throughout scripture we see several names ascribed to the Son of God. To a person unfamiliar with the Bible this can be quite confusing. They may ask: “Why so many names?” “What does each name mean?” or even, “What’s in a name?”

In this season, and throughout our lives, we celebrate the birth of Jesus by recognizing the power and significance of each name given Him: Immanuel, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, Jesus!

In Matthew Chapters 5-7, Jesus delivers a speech that launches a world-wide revolution.

As he sits on a mountainside and speaks to the crowd that has gathered, he describes “the #BLESSED life”, but the picture he paints is VERY different from what you would expect the typical revolutionary to paint. To motivate his followers, Jesus encourages them to be “poor” and “meek.” He tells them to show mercy even when (especially when) it is undeserved and then goes on to say that they will suffer persecution and insults, and this suffering should bring them joy; their hardships are actually blessings!

In this, his most famous sermon, Jesus flipped the script on God’s chosen people. For centuries, they’d looked to their PAST for answers in their PRESENT life. Now, Jesus was telling them to look to their FUTURE. He told them that the Law, handed down to them by God, was actually prophetic. It pointed to a future that HE was bringing to pass. He told them their true value was to be found in living a life pleasing to God—and by pursuing this life, they would fulfill every aspect and intent of the Law. Jesus promised the suffering they were enduring here on Earth would prove to be insignificant compared to their future with Him.

God’s intent from day one has been for us to live a blessed life. Since the fall of man, our world has presented many false images or imitations of this life. When Jesus came to Earth, he painted a picture of what this life truly looks like and then, as a benediction to his sermon, he went on to live a TRULY blessed life, as an example for us to follow.

Life is not meant to be lived passively. A life well-lived has power and purpose. As CHRIST-FOLLOWERS, we’ve been saved from stagnation and called for a purpose greater than ourselves.

As THE CHURCH, we gather, and we gain strength.
As we scatter, we share the Love of God with the world around us. The church is not a building but a PEOPLE... confident in Christ, and UNITED with one mission: to continue the good work that He began.

NOW is the time for us to say, “LET’S DO THIS!”

The Book of Jonah includes much more than the simple Sunday school story of “Jonah and the Big Fish”…

This book highlights God’s sovereignty and mercy. It shows his love for all of mankind—those that follow Him, and those that have chosen to go the opposite direction. This “simple child’s story” foreshadows the manner in which Jesus proved his identity as God’s son and brought the means for salvation to the world. This historical account of the prophet Jonah, who lived seven centuries before the birth of Christ, is full of rich application for the life of a 21st century believer.

We can see that there is a little bit of Jonah in every one of us; we’ve all been given a mission from God, and at times we have all had our own reasons for shying away from boldly proclaiming the Good News of Jesus to a world that desperately needs this message.

It has been said that there are glimpses of the Gospel Message in every book of the Bible. This is definitely proven true in the Book of Jonah, the prophet.
