The God Who Looks Like Jesus

Sermon Title: The God Who Looks Like Jesus
Scripture Reading: Luke 9:51-56; John 14:5-9, Hebrews 1:1-3

Jesus is what God is like and what God has always been like. But unfortunately, many people have allowed competing portraits of God to negatively shape their lives. Current brain research has found that distorted images and negative concepts of God lead us to unhealthy patterns of self-defeating behaviors and toxic relationships. In The God Who Looks Like Jesus, Pastor David challenges us to align our thoughts about God to reflect what has been fully revealed in Christ.

The Twilight Zone God

Sermon Title: The Twilight Zone God
Scripture Reading: Luke 9:51-56; John 14:5-9; Hebrews 1:1-3

Who is God? What is God like? Our portrait of God impacts us for better or for worse. The New Testament presents Jesus of Nazareth as God come to us in the flesh. Through Jesus we know who God is and what God is like. Yet many Christians let other competing views of deity overpower the God revealed in Jesus. 

In The Twilight Zone God, Pastor David calls us to throw off all portraits of God that contradict Jesus. He addresses the importance of the revelation of Christ and how it ought to impact our thinking about God, the Scriptures, and the way we live.
