A Place to Believe

Rediscover Jesus, today.

Journal Instructions

We all learn in different ways and at different paces. To one, an abstract work of art speaks more volumes than a book. To another, music is more sensible than a manual. As you journal today, take the time to explore the different styles of learning. When you finish, look back and reflect on what you rediscovered about Jesus. Grab your journal, and let's get started.

Part 1
This Sunday, Pastor Ted spoke from John 14:6. If Jesus is the only way to which we can be saved, how does that affect how you may view others who are part of other religions? How does this change the way in which you talk with them about Jesus? 
Part 2

In Week 2 of our series, Rediscover Jesus, we examine God’s Word in John 1:14 – And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. The Gospel of John emphasizes that Jesus was sent by and from the Father, the real representative. Jesus is the eternal son, housed in human form, and He came to reveal the truth about God and enact God’s eternal plan of salvation. This truth is life-changing to those who embrace it!

Part 3

Claiming to be the eternal Son of God, the Savior of the world, is one thing. Backing it up with power is something else. That is what Jesus did by performing miraculous signs. In fact, that is why he did miracles – so that people would believe in him. Rediscovering (or discovering) Jesus involves coming to grips with the fact that Jesus works miracles – not tame, feel-good, run-of-the-mill events, but bold, extraordinary, incredible miracles. These are signs that he is who he says he is and that we can believe and trust in him.

Part 1

Father, we exist within your love
With our hopes fixed upon your Son
Spirit, guide us as we run
This race of faith that you’ve begun
 
We thank you, Jesus for your grace
Upon our broken hearts we ask
With boldness will You come at last
Until that day may we stand fast
 
Spirit, resurrect our love
Direct our hearts to the Holy One
Who tasted death for everyone
Spirit, resurrect our love
 
Father, we exist within your grace
In your Son we place our faith
Spirit, please fill us today
 
Forgive us when we lose our way
We thank you, Jesus for the cross
Our life is found in yours laid down
We surrender, we have counted the cost
We live, we love, in You we’re found
 
Spirit, resurrect our love
Direct our hearts to the Holy One
Who tasted death for everyone
Spirit, resurrect our love
 
Before the cross we lay our lives
In your love we will abide
Spirit, come reveal the Son through us
Death and sin has been undone
You chose us in your perfect love
Seek and save the lost through us
 
Before the cross we lay our lives
In your love we will abide
Spirit, come reveal the Son through us
Death and sin has been undone
You chose us in your perfect love
To seek and save the lost through us
 
Spirit, resurrect our love
Direct our hearts to the Holy One
Who tasted death for everyone
Spirit, resurrect our love
Part 2

You tore the night apart
And ripped the silent skies in half
Your glory breaking through the dark
And here our worlds collide
Divinity in man confined

This great design drawn out for me
Emmanuel
God with us
Emmanuel

Hallelujah
You hold the ends of time
Yet placed Yourself here into mine
My life is now forever changed
Our eyes be lifted up

Our great eternal hope arise
This great design drawn out for me
Emmanuel
God with us
Emmanuel
Hallelujah

Emmanuel
God with us
Emmanuel
Hallelujah

In our silence
Heaven whispered out
In our darkness
Glory pierced the night
We were broken
But now we’re lifted up
King of heaven
God is here with us

Hallelujah
Angels crying aloud
Singing holy
All the praise resound
King of Heaven
On the Earth be found
King of Heaven
On the Earth be found

Emmanuel
God with us
Emmanuel
Hallelujah

Writing a new story...

To be made whole, or to be saved, is to submit to God and His plan and Lordship for our lives. It is a turning from our old ways and turning to Jesus. When we ask him to forgive our sins, He gives us new life.

Romans 10:9 says: “If you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Salvation is God’s free gift to us and we become His children.

It is an irrevocable acceptance into the family of God and it is an empowerment to live life wholly and fully with the purpose of reflecting God to the rest of His creation.

If you are not sure whether you are right with God or you know in fact that you need Jesus in your life, you can choose to follow Him right now by praying a prayer of surrender to Him.

Dear God, I’m praying this prayer because I know that I have done wrong by living without You. I am sorry and I trust that You will forgive me. I accept Your love and grace for me and ask that You would be my Lord. Help me believe in You and love You every day, and help me to show the world what You are like and how great Your love is. In Jesus’ name, amen.
