Our purpose today is to achieve spiritual, emotional and mental well-being aligned with God as the center of our lives. The root cause of human problems is original sin. Jesus Jesus’s is the person in the trinity that is the eternal identity of the Father’s beloved Son (Diffey, 2015). He is the word of God. Jesus fulfilled the prophecies in the Old Testament and taught with authority new lessons about the Kingdom of God. Jesus healed the sick, casts down demons and performed many miracles such as calming the wind, turning water into wine, bringing people back from the dead and turning a few loaves of bread and fish into enough to feed the multitudes. He humbled himself for a while to becoming lower than the angels an died a dishonorable death on the cross, Jesus did this because he might break the power of him who holds the power of death-that is, the devil-(Hebrews 2:14). Through death, Jesus gave us eternal salvation to all who obey him (Hebrews 5:8-9). “Finally, Jesus is a “better sacrifice” (Hebrews 9:23-24) which cleanses the heavenly sanctuary institutes a new and “better covenant” (Hebrews 8:6) removes sins and cleanses consciences (Hebrews 9:14; 10:10) by opening a new way to the throne of God (Hebrews 110:19-20) (Im Seok, 2018).” God restored him higher than the angels and made his name above all names I heaven, earth and below the earth. Jesus is now seated at 2
the right hand of the father in equality with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the center of Christian Worldview. He is the lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29). Today we give remembrance of Jesus Christ an honorable death by taking part in communion just as he asked at the last supper and we teach this to each generation, so they may know the grace and unconditional love that Christ showed us then and still now today. He also gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit which is the very same spirit that brought Jesus back from the grave. We worship honor and glorify him.
