Revelation 12

Prize the real king of glory. This raises a critical question: why? 1. He is the word of life. 2. He is our fellowship. 3. He is our joy.

COVID-19 has exposed our need for community, or what the Bible calls “fellowship.” In this passage, the Apostle John calls us into fellowship with the church, ultimately so we will have fellowship with God

Remember the humility of Christ for you and me – fully God he laid down his place in glory to rescue us.  He came as a man to serve and was humbly obedient to the point of death.  And God exalted him; Jesus reigns forever as the king of Glory!

Philippians 2:5-11

Exalting Jesus in Philippians, by Tony Merida and David Platt

In Philippians 2:5 Paul connects the overarching theme of joy to the way that we think: Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus. That brings us to the big idea of our passage this morning: For the sake of joy, think like Jesus. Daily joy comes as we take on the attitude and mindset, the very thinking of Jesus, specifically in the way that we relate to one another. What kind of thinking characterized the king of glory, born in a manger? 1. He thought of others 2. He thought of God 3. He thought of future glory.

When we’re united to someone, we begin to think “in” them; we see their future as our future, their pains as our pains, their victories as our victories. if Christians are united to Christ, how do we think in Him? that’s what this passage is about.

Our big idea this morning: Jesus is God’s ultimate word to you. Sometimes when we are weary and discouraged, we wish God would just speak to us. That would fix everything. He has! Jesus is everything God wants to say to you in a person. So, what should we do with Jesus? We’ll explore two answers this morning: 1. Know Jesus. 2. Pay close attention to Jesus.
