Our Youth and Young Adults Pastor Shane Rayner brings us this message on Emulating the love of Jesus, based on John 13:1-9.
Part four of EMULATE is brought to us by Jonathan Davies, and is taken from John 11:32-44.
Part 3 of EMULATE comes to us from our Senior Pastor Jonathan Davies.
The scriptures are from Hebrews 12:1-3 ...
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy that was set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
... and from Luke 4:1-2 ...
Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry.
Part two of EMULATE comes to us from Tyler Shedd and is all about being like Jesus in how we obey God's word.
The main theme of the message comes out of Luke 11:27-28 -
As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowd called out, ‘Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you.’
He replied, ‘Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.’
