When we think of Jesus, we often consider what he did for us as individuals, and that’s necessary because our ultimate goal is to have a personal relationship with Christ. But ponder how the birth of Christ changed our future not only by transforming individual lives but also altering the landscape of history. On Sunday, we’ll look at how Christ changed our future through Love, Hope and Faith.
This Sunday, we will focus on the message that the angel gave to the shepherds on the night Jesus was born. In Luke 2:10-11, the angel says, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you." Did you catch what the angel said? The birth of Jesus is good news for "all people" because a Savior has been born to me. Jesus came into the world so that He might change me (and you) . . . so that He might save me (and you). Join us as we look at the impact Jesus has made on all of us.
This Sunday, we will look at the impact that Jesus makes on family. No doubt His own family was impacted by His arrival in our world. We are told in Luke 1:41, as Mary meets with her cousin Elizabeth, "When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit." However, this was not always the reaction of Jesus's family members during His ministry. So join us this week as we discuss the changes that Jesus can make within our most important relationships, our family.
This Sunday, we will look at how Jesus changes the way we view love. In the New Testament, we find four kinds of love mentioned in the Greek text: Storge, Philia, Eros and Agape. The first three were embraced by the world. But when Jesus stepped into our world, He began to highlight Agape love, which is the highest form of love, an unconditional, sacrificial kind of love. So join us Sunday as we unpack how Jesus has changed even the way we love.
This Sunday, we will highlight how Jesus changes my lifestyle. There is no doubt that a new baby changes the lifestyle of any family. But think about Mary and Joseph. Their lives were turned upside down. The lifestyle of 12 Jewish men were radically different because of Jesus, and even the lifestyle of a man named Saul was radically changed by Jesus. Join us Sunday as we begin this new series.
