√ Jesus is not COMPLICATED!
(1 Corinthians 2:1-2 MSG) You’ll remember, friends, that when I first came to you, …. I didn’t try to impress you with polished speeches and the latest philosophy. I deliberately kept it plain and simple: first Jesus and who He is; then Jesus and what He did—Jesus crucified.
(1 Corinthians 1:19-20 NLT) ……….”I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and discard the intelligence of the intelligent.” So where does this leave the philosophers, the scholars, and the world’s brilliant debaters? God has made the wisdom of this world look foolish.
√ Jesus is GRACE.
(John 19:30 NLT) …….. “It is finished!” Then He bowed his head and released his spirit.
(Acts 20:24 NLT) … my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus–the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.
√ Jesus is fully AWARE.
(Hebrews 2:17 NLT) ….it was necessary for Him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then he could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people.
— He understands LIFE.
(Hebrews 4:15 NIV) For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet he did not sin.
— He understands PAIN.
(Isaiah 53:3 NIV) He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain…..
(Isaiah 53:5 NIV) But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
√ Make Jesus YOUR BEST FRIEND.
(John 15:15 NIV) I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
(Hebrews 4:16 NIV) Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
JESUS IS GRACE!!!!!!!!!!
