What A Friend We Have in Jesus
Let's look at the life of Jesus Christ
- Jesus is a friend to tax collectors and sinners (Matthew 11: 19; Luke 19:1-ff)
- Jesus makes it possible to have a relationship with God.
- Christians are called to be like Jesus Christians are challenged to love like Jesus Challenged--Mark 1: 40ff, a man with Leprosy
- Jesus reaches out and touched this man, Jesus loved the rejected
- I Cor. 6:9-11
Scriptures teach what is right and what is wrong God reaches out to EVERYONE
- To appreciate the "Good-News" you must understand the “Bad-News” Luke 7:11-17
- Christians have a message of hope
- Jesus was a faithful friend
- Proverbs 17:17
Mark 10:17 Rich Young Ruler "No one is good except God"
- My definition of good is God Mk. 10:21 "one thing you lack"
- Jesus is a friend forever -- Mark 1:16-18
The simplest definition of a Christian is following -- Acts 11:25-26 If you are not a disciple-you are not a Christian
“live in the expression that you love God”
