THE POWER OF AN ENCOUNTER WITH GOD

A thief comes to steal and kill and destroy, but I came to give life- life in all its fullness.

John 10:10 (NCV)

 

WHAT DO WE NEED TO KNOW?

 

He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live to please themselves. Instead, they will live to please Christ, who died and was raised for them. So we have stopped evaluating others  by what the world thinks about them. Once I mistakenly thought of Christ that way, as though he were merely a human being. How differently I think about him now! What this means is that those who become Christians become new persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun! All this newness of life is from God, who brought us back to himself, no longer counting people's sins against them. This is the wonderful message he has given us to tell others. We are Christ's ambassadors, and God is using us to speak to you. We urge you, "Be reconciled to God!" For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God though Christ.

  Psalm 100:4 (TLB)

 

 

    1.      Jesus died for us and rose from the dead. 
     

 

2.     He empowers us to live a new life.

 

 

3.     Follow Him and become empowered.

 

 

4.    Becoming a Christ-follower means you become a new person. 

 

 

5.    We are ambassadors with good news.  

 

 

 

WHAT DO WE NEED TO TELL?

 

 

 

1.    God gives you new life. 

  

 

2.    We need Christ to connect with God.

 

 

3.     God forgives us. 

 

 

4.     Jesus died in our place to pay for our sin. 

 

 

 5.     We enter into a right relationship with God through Christ.

I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes;
