THE RADICAL POWER OF JESUS
inside out-wkend

"Nineteen long centuries have come and gone, and today He is a centerpiece of the human race and leader of the column of progress.

"I am far within the mark when I say that all the armies that ever marched, all the navies that were ever built; all the parliaments that ever sat and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man upon this earth as powerfully as has that one solitary life."  ~Dr James Allan Francis

His name is...JESUS!

Your life can radically change for the better. Come each Sunday through Easter to hear how!

December 31  Make Ready The Way
Many Christians may not feel a need to bear fruit to prove that they have had a change of mind in keeping with their profession of faith. How did John the Baptist--the forerunner of Christ--address this?

January 7  When the Devil Knocks
Jesus used memorized Scripture to combat the areas in which Satan tempted Him. We must understand the power of Scripture to sanctify us.

January 14  The Greatest Sermon Ever

Victory starts in the heart & mind. We must not, as the Pharisees did, use false tokens of righteousness to hide our sinful attitudes.

January 21  Gems of God

Jesus’ parable speaks of those who receive the word bearing fruit several-fold. Perhaps some struggle with being like the other seed: not receiving the word of God, succumbing to trial or persecution, or succumbing to the cares of the world.

January 28  Winning
Jesus sends out the Twelve to share the gospel of the kingdom. We may struggle with being faithful in telling others about Jesus Christ. We will be challenged to have victory over a timid or ashamed attitude when it comes to being His witnesses.

February 4  Questioning
Jesus says He will build His Church and “the Gates of Hades will not prevail against it”. This is likely a reference to idolatry or false religion. We will learn how to be a Church that is victorious against the claims of false religion.

February 11  Glorifying
Many people may forget how glorious Jesus really is. Some think of Him in a way that is weak or insufficient. We will be challenged to think of Him as He truly is, the fully divine Second Person of the Trinity, full of glory as Peter, James and John witnessed on the Mount of Transfiguration.

February 18  Living Water
Jesus says that whoever comes to Him will have “rivers of living water” come from their heart. Some may struggle with having a “dry” life spiritually. They must We will be challenged to overcome spiritual “dryness".

February 25  Abundant Life
Jesus speaks of eternal security. Many of us may struggle with believing that they we are truly saved, and this doubt can hinder our fruitfulness. We need to have assurance of salvation and achieve victory over doubt.

March 4  The Cost of Discipleship
Jesus calls His disciples to be willing to give up anything to follow Him. Many Christians struggle to be faithful to this, and must find victory in the area of being committed to Jesus.

March 11  The Ultimate Choice
Many people value their possessions on earth more than their possessions in heaven. People must be challenged to have victory over the mindset that “here and now” is all that matters, a mindset which over-values temporal riches at the expense of eternal riches.

March 18  In Spite of Plotting
People may have unanswered questions in the Christian life, such as about predestination or other areas. Sometimes Christ simply will not answer our questions because He does not have to. We are nevertheless required to submit fully to Christ, whether He answers all of our questions or not.

March 25  In Spite of Hopelessness
Many Christians struggle to persevere through trials even today, and must learn to have victory in the area of perseverance.

March 30 (Good Friday)  In Spite of Sorrow
Jesus Christ experienced extreme sorrow as He approached His death, the sacrifice He had to make so that He would defeat death once and for all. He was faithful to His calling to the very end. What does this mean for you and me?

April 1 (Easter Sunday)  In Spite of Death
Jesus Christ was faithful to His calling to the point of death--death on a cross. He who had power over death was victorious over the grave. What does His resurrection do for us?
