Let’s Talk About Jesus Part 1 – Ps Sharon Bendixen (WTB)
The precious Holy, written Word is truth and will free your life up to walk in the fullness of everything that salvation brings.
1In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. 2He was present originally with God. (John 1:1-2 AMPC).
Let’s rejoice together today, in our precious Lord Jesus.
The Holy Spirit wants you to see Jesus, this morning through Scripture.
Meditate on the following beautiful Scriptures about Jesus.
Open the Word for yourself and you will get more light about Jesus.
Acts 4:12 (AMPC); John 8:58 (AMPC); John 3:16-18 (AMPC); Romans 1:16-32 (AMPC); John 12:32 (AMPC); John 14:6 (AMPC); John 3:3-6 (AMPC); John 1:1-10 (AMPC); 2 Corinthians 4:4-7 (AMPC); John 1:9-18 (AMPC).
God so loved the world that He gave Jesus, so that whosoever should believe in Him shall not perish but shall have Life – and the Life is the Light. To receive eternal life means your spirit gets born again and recreated so that you receive the very Life of Christ. You’ve been predestined to be transformed into the image of Christ. Every person in the whole world can be illumined by the Life and the Light of God, because the Life is the Light.
Jesus came to save not to condemn. There are men and women in the world today who hear about Christ and refuse to believe, bringing conviction and judgment on themselves. (It is not Jesus; they bring it on themselves.) Idolatry is something your heart chooses. You just want to worship something else other than God. God gives every person faith to believe in Jesus.
Men and women today still choose to not recognize Jesus as the Life and the Light. That’s why we pray for them. The Bible says, the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers so that they should not see the Light of the glorious Gospel, as it is seen in the Face of Lord Jesus Christ. We possess this treasure in our earthen vessels that we can beam Jesus forth to anybody. You and I possess a precious treasure, the divine Light of the Gospel.
16-18 “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. (John 3:16-18 MSG)
God is a Spirit and when you get born again, your spirit gets born again. The moment you say, “Jesus, I acknowledge You, I call upon Your Name Jesus.” The Holy Spirit comes immediately and does the new birth, the reborn miracle in your spirit, and you become alive unto God.
12And there is salvation in and through no one else. (Acts 4:12 AMPC)
Settle that in your heart? There is no other God; there is no other Name under heaven by which man can be saved. Jesus came to redeem mankind back to Him. Jesus is the Life, the Truth, and the Way. There is no other Name.
It is time for you to bring and to invite people. This is our responsibility to reach out to men and women and boys and girls and tell them the Gospel of Jesus. It’s the power of God unto salvation, for us to not be ashamed of the Gospel. This is why our prayers are so powerful when Ephesians says, “Pray for all men.”
Our Sunday morning messages are taking on a form that Pastor John is desiring of an evangelistic culture for now, for the unsaved and the lost. What a perfect opportunity for you to bring family, for you to bring friends who are asking real questions. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help; to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in Him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust Him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. Why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him/her.
People are ready. May you participate with the Lord of the harvest. May the Father thrust you into the harvest that is ripe.
We are newly inspired, fresh fired to share beautiful Jesus, and the love of Jesus to people, that they can be born again. We’ve read beautiful Scriptures about what we can say to people about Jesus. Every time you speak to somebody about Jesus, you’re beaming that part of you, that’s like Christ, forth. The Holy Spirit puts a love in your heart for that eternal destiny of that person. Don’t quench it, respond to it.
Put your hand on your heart and say,
I am a son of God. Jesus is my Lord. God is my Father. The Holy Spirit lives in me. I am thankful, I am born of God, I am a son of God. I love Him. I adore Him. He is beautiful.
Father, I will walk in the Light more and more. I will walk in the Light because You keep shining in me. Your Holy Spirit keeps giving me more, because revelation is Light. I have seen Jesus again fresh and new this morning and I will be inspired, just to share, just to invite, just to speak to others about their eternal destiny. I will begin to participate with this surge that is in Pastor John for the unsaved and the lost.
The truth is still for me that supernatural increase is coming through the new open door. I will strike for supernatural increase, I will celebrate the Father all week long. I will be filled with joy, I will be lifted off by the Spirit of God into a fresh place with You Father. I am alive with You and onto You, in Jesus’ name.
I declare Father, that the evil one touches me not. You keep me safe. I will be strong to rise up in my faith this week, every day, in the fullness of my salvation, that Jesus provided for me. I will be bold to rise up and proclaim.
