"Who is this Man Called Jesus?" June 28, 2020

Charles Stanley's sermon offered an overview of Jesus Christ. He listed attributes of Jesus: creator, all-powerful, all-knowing, merciful, eternal, sinless, human, deity, virgin-born and abiding in our hearts.  

He explained the mission of Jesus was to reveal the Father, redeem mankind, assure us of our salvation, and promise resurrection and abundant life. He is Lord of All. 

    What stood out to you today?
    What was a good reminder, what was new?

Spend some time in fellowship beginning with these questions. Pray for each person before you finish. Remember, short prayers in a group make everyone comfortable. 

Love one another and be blessed! You are prayed for and loved.
