Ten Looks At Jesus

The Ascension

He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”  When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Garden Prayer

Gethsemane is about prayer. Why did Jesus pray? What did he pray? And how did God answer His prayer? We learned that God answered “No” to one prayer and “Yes” to another prayer from Jesus on the same night. Because of Jesus’ incredible love for us, he fully drank the cup of the wrath of God so that we would see the glory of God and be with Him in heaven one day. Jesus went out as usual to the…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Transfiguration

In this passage, we read about His transfiguration. This event illustrates 2 points: Who is Jesus and Why did He come into the world? For a brief moment in time, His inner circle disciples witnessed the glory of God shine through Jesus’ humanity. Moses and Elijah were present as a picture that Jesus was the fulfillment of the law and the prophecy. He must suffer for the sin of the people. The Lord of glory would die for those he…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Temptations

Today we look at a passage of scripture that talks about Jesus’ temptations. Were the temptations of Jesus easier than the ones we experience because he did not struggle with sin? What areas were Jesus tempted and how did he respond? How can we overcome temptations based on the examples given to us by Jesus? Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Baptism

Baptism is a symbol of repentance for sinners. So why did Jesus have to be baptized when he was sinless? He did so to identify with us sinners. His baptism was also the fulfillment of the prophecy that pointed to the crucifixion. Jesus set examples for us to follow in baptism, in prayer, and in being filled with the Holy Spirit. If he who was sinless recognized the need for such spiritual discipline, how much more do we need to…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Childhood

This is the only passage in the scripture that focuses on Jesus’ childhood. When Jesus was 12 years old he went with his parents to Jerusalem for the festival of the Passover. Jesus said he must be in his Father’s House. Though this is a statement we hear often, at that time, it was a shocking statement for someone to claim that God was his father. Jesus knew firmly who he was and made a bold statement. He knew himself…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Birth

The birth of Jesus was the reality that God moved history for His plan and His purpose to be accomplished. Everything happened exactly as the prophets had foretold. Though it appeared in our human eyes that the powerful ones were the rulers of the Roman world, the one in control and the most powerful one of all, was the infant who was born. Jesus was born in poverty as a helpless babe so that in his poverty we might become…

Ten Looks at Jesus: Our Certainty

Many of us consider ourselves Christians. But how confident are we in the Gospel? Do you have doubts here and there when you read the Bible? If so, you’ve come to the right place. The Gospel of Luke and John were written with this type of audience in mind. These things were written so that we may be certain of what we believe. Join us as we explore the Gospel in this 11-week series on “Ten Looks at Jesus”. Many…

Praying the Lord’s Prayer

The Lord’s prayer is a lesson we can learn about Christlikeness. Prayer is one of the most important aspects of Jesus’ life and ministry. He started his ministry with prayer and he often withdrew to lonely place to pray. Several times he stayed up all night to pray.Jesus did not just talk about prayer, He lived the life of prayer. The disciples also learned from Jesus how to talk to God the Father. We can learn from Jesus as he…

Praying for Christlikeness

Christlikeness is the supreme priority for believing people. Join us today as we explore what the scripture has to say about this? How can we pray for Christlikeness? And how can we grow in Christlikeness. Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. “ 1 Corinthians 11:1 (NIV) For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He…

Mary’s Song of Praise

Everyone who came in touch with Jesus responded in worship. So did Mary when she responded with a song of praise with regards to Christ’s coming birth. In today’s sermon we learn from Mary how to worship and be a worshiper that God seeks. And Mary said: “ My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call…

Forsaken Love

Christ is to be first in our heart’s affections, yet we are prone to become indifferent in our love for Him. Through repentance and prayer, we can remedy the forsaking of the love we once held for Jesus.

Celebrating Christmas

At Christmas, we celebrate the arrival of Emmanuel, God with us. The shepherds responded to this good news delivered by the angels by believing the message and acting on it. Mary worshipped and pondered in her heart all that had been told to her about Jesus. Let us celebrate Christ’s birth by first coming to faith in Christ. Then let us tell others the Good News of salvation, meditate on Jesus and treasure Hime, and praise God for sending our Savior.

In the Fields of Bethlehem

The first people to hear the Advent message were shepherds, a group considered in the culture of that day to be untrustworthy outcasts. The shepherds were terrified as they saw a glimpse of divine holiness and might. But the angel spoke with the reassuring message, “Fear not.” The good news for all people presented by the angel is a message of forgiveness and great joy. The High King of Heaven came into our world to bring grace. He is Emmanuel, God with us.

A Birth in Bethlehem

The account of the birth of Jesus in Luke 2:1-7 reveals much about three attributes and the character of God. God is sovereign: the mighty emperor of the Roman empire became the unwitting servant of God to fulfill prophecy (Micah 5:2). God is faithful: every detail foretold concerning the birth of the Messiah came to pass. God is humble: Christ came to our world, to seek and save the lost.

Jerusalem, Jerusalem

Jesus wept in anguish over the city of Jerusalem because its residents had rejected Him. He was honest about the judgement which was imminent for Jerusalem. It is biblical to weep and be burdened over those who have rejected the refuge that God offers. If you need reconciliation with God in your own life, remember that God said, “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked,” Ezekiel 33:11 (ESV) and seek His forgiveness and peace.

Giving Thanks

Psalms 100 reminds us that we are to come to worship with praise and thanksgiving already in our hearts. Gratitude should be a hallmark of every child of grace. It is not enough to feel grateful — we should also express our thanks to God. On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance and lifted up their voices,…

Our Holy God

And he went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee. And he was teaching them on the Sabbath, and they were astonished at his teaching, for his word possessed authority. And in the synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice, “Ha! What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God.”…

Lord, Teach Us to Pray

The disciples asked, “Lord, teach us to pray” because they knew that Jesus valued prayer in every aspect of His life. The Lord’s Prayer (Luke 11) is still valuable today and can shape, inform, and inspire our communion with God and our intercession with Him. It is a pattern for our prayer, a prayer we can offer in Jesus’ name, and a prayer for a God-focused life.

Read!, Meditate!, Pray!

In Luke 10:38-42, Mary sits at the feet of Jesus and humbly listens. Today we listen to Him by contemplating the Word of God. We need more of God, more of His truth, and more of His Holy Spirit in our lives. Our need is met as we read the Bible, ponder it deeply, depend on the Holy Spirit to guide us, and pray to God concerning what we read. May it not be said of us, “Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God.
