Blueprint, part 3. Jesus is the true vine: the one who which all the life, the goodness, the power and the grace of God flows through. It’s only when we’re connect to Jesus that our lives bear fruit.
Part 2. What does a church filled with the Holy Spirit look like? Every Christian needs the ongoing baptism and filling of the Holy Spirit to live out the lives God’s called us to.
Part 12. Many people think of Heaven and Earth as two separate spaces, but it was never meant to be that way. When Jesus came, he started bringing Heaven to Earth, and when he returns, the two will be reunited forever.
CentrePiece, part 11. Jesus says “In the world you will have trouble. But take heart, I have overcome the world”.
Part 9. Jesus has come and conquered Satan. For all of us who are in Christ, when Jesus wins, we win. As Romans 8 proclaims: “we are more than conquerors through him who loved us”.
CentrePiece, part 8. We’re in a culture that loves new things. Rather than fixing something broken, we replace it with the latest model. But Jesus doesn’t give up on us. He takes the broken world and makes it new.
Part 7. Jesus is a fully emotional person, and lives a very rich and colourful emotional life. Experiencing emotions is not a barrier to Godliness. Instead, we can learn to use them well for the good of ourselves and others.
Part 6. Jesus is the bread of life: all you could ever need is found in him. The things of this world cannot satisfy. But whoever believes in Jesus will have everlasting life, and they will not hunger or thirst for anything.
Part 5. To talk about being a friend of sinners is to delve into the heart of God — that’s when we really see Christ. He embraces both the outcasts, the traitors, the untouchables; and those right at the centre of society.
