5 Portraits of Christ
We must believe Jesus is the…
- Promised King
- that His coming was Prophesied and He fullfilled every prophecy
- Perfect God-Man
- fully God, yet fully man– tempted in every way but never sinned—Therefore he can advocate for you (represent you in God’s court)
- Sufficient Substitute
- that He can & did pay the price for your sin
- Risen Victor
- that He really did die & come back to life & that He is ALIVE today
- Returning Lord
- He is coming back!– Do you believe there will be a judgement day?
Which of these 5 Portraits do you have the most trouble believing? Why?
Who do you believe Jesus is?
How can Jesus uniquely give life to believers?
- Because He is King, He is fully God & fully man, He paid the price for our sins, He conquered death & He’s coming back to take us to be with Him always… it is through Himself He gives us life
- God cannot give us happiness or peace (life!) apart from himself—the wrong fuel only ruins a car
