So . . . Easter was awesome! Per usual, it’s always great to celebrate the miracle that is God’s great love for us, expressed through the sacrifice and victory of Jesus.
But now what?
Jesus is risen and reigning on high, but how do I take my personal decision and turn it into something that changes my life? What about changing my friends’ lives?
At Journey, we’re all about humbly pointing everyone to absolute Hope. That hope is Jesus. I’m basically asking how we do all that humbly pointing stuff. What does it look like day to day to live a life that reflects the truth I believe about Jesus?
In our new series, How to Be Jesus to Your Friends, we’re going to explore that very question. We want to help you have a better understanding of how to practically be Jesus to your friends. Jesus calls us to grow to be more and more like him, so how do we do it?!?
We’re going to learn that it starts with being TRANSFORMED. Before we can BE Jesus we must be transformed BY Jesus. To live intentionally, we must first become a new creation in Christ.
We’re also going to learn about the character of Jesus, to give us clear, practical direction in our day-to-day lives. Finally, we’ll learn that it comes down to finding the importance of living an intentional life. Being Jesus to our friends isn’t about ACTS of service, but rather living a LIFE of service to others.
We hope this series challenges you to look at how you live your life. I mean REALLY take a hard LOOK at how you’re living your life. Are you being Jesus to your friends? Or are you just another person they know?
Join us for this practical series where we’ll put some real handles to what it looks like to be Jesus to your friends.
