"As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you." (John 20:21)

"Why did Jesus come to Earth?" Jesus came to Earth to do many things, but why? During His time here He was a missionary, a priest, and prophet. He claimed that He was king. There are many things that Jesus did while here on Earth, but why did He come and why did He do them?

"...everything written about in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled." (Luke 24:44)

"How did people know Jesus was coming?" Jesus is the central theme of the Bible, New Testament and Old Testament. If that it is true, then surely the people during Jesus' time would have known to expect His coming. What in the Old Testament did Jesus fulfill?

Posted at 3:56 PM


As a life group, we are designating the fourth Sunday of each month to meet and eat for lunch after church. You don't have to make a reservation, but we will coordinate a casual restaurant (with plenty of high chairs) where you order when you get there, sit, eat, and can feel free to move around and visit the different people who come.

This Sunday: Taco Cabana

NOTE: If you have any suggestions of where we can meet in the future (i.e. enough high chairs and space), we'd be happy to hear them. Just leave a comment on this post.

This Sunday: How Human Was Jesus?

"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us..." (John 1:14)

"How human was Jesus?" Jesus' time on earth was lived as an ordinary man. He was born and he died. He enjoyed life, was tempted, got angry, and felt sorrow. Jesus knew every bit of what is like to be human, but He never compromised the fullness of divinity. Jesus was 100% God and 100% human while he was on earth. Last week we looked into Jesus as God, this week we'll look into Jesus as human.

What's the Most Compelling Reason For You?

This morning during our table discussions we were asked, "What is the most compelling reason for you that Jesus is the only God?" I don't know what was said at the other tables, but we had all sorts of answers. For some people it was the words that Jesus spoke and how his opposition (Pharisees) viewed what He said. For others, the fact that every religion has to explain Jesus away because of His influence in history. Still, some thought that their personal relationship with Jesus was the most the compelling reason for them, that they know He lives.

Do you believe that Jesus is the only God? If so, what's the most compelling reason for you that Jesus is the only God?

This Sunday: Is Jesus the Only God?

"Again the high priest asked him, 'Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?' And Jesus said, 'I am...'" (Mark 14:61-62)

"Is Jesus the only God?", there is no more important question that we should have to answer than this one. Jesus performed many miracles during His day, His influence was great over the people who were closest to Him, and He is still plays a role in today's society. He made claims of supreme authority over all of creation, being one with God, and living a sinless life. So, if Jesus is who He says He is, what difference does that make in your life?
