WHO IS THIS MAN CALLED JESUS?
JOHN TEEM JR./CASCADES CHAPEL SVC. SUNDAY DEC. 13, 2009

INTRODUCTION:
DO WE TRULY KNOW THIS MAN WHO GOES BY THE NAME
JESUS CHRIST?
WE SEE HIM AS UP THERE WITH GOD, WHICH HE IS AND WAS AND ALWAYS WILL BE, LET US NOT DOUBT THAT FOR A MOMENT.
BUT DO WE KNOW THE MAN?
THIS MAN WHO WALKED THIS EARTH AS YOU AND I
AND WAS SOMEONES SERVANT WHO SUFFERED AS YOU AND I DO BUT SO MUCH WORSE THAN WE COULD EVER BEAR TO SUFFER?
THIS MAN WHO SACRIFICED EVERYTHING TO SERVE A GREATER PURPOSE?
A MAN WHO SACRIFICED SO MUCH FOR EVEN THOSE WHO HE KNEW WOULD STILL REJECT HIM?
DO WE TRULY KNOW THIS MAN WHO WAS THE ONLY SOLUTION TO ALL THE WORLDS PROBLEMS?
I BET WE DON’T, SO LET US EXAMINE A LITTLE CLOSER THIS MAN CALLED JESUS

I – A MAN SENT TO SERVE
IT IS RECORDED IN MATTHEW 20:28 THAT JESUS SAID “THE SON OF MAN DID NOT COME TO BE SERVED, BUT TO SERVE, AND TO GIVE HIS LIFE A RANSOM FOR MANY.”
A – HE IS THE SERVANT OF GOD
1 – GOD’S SERVANTS ARE CALLED TO WORK
JOHN 9:4 JESUS SAID “I MUST WORK THE WORKS OF HIM WHO SENT ME WHILE IT IS DAY, FOR THE NIGHT COMETH WHEN NO MAN CAN WORK
2 – GOD’S SERVANTS WILL SUFFER
IN MATTHEW, MARK AND LUKE WE FIND THE SAME QUOTE FROM JESUS TO HIS DISCIPLES: “The Son of Man must suffer many things. He will be rejected by the elders, chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.”
WE ARE CALLED TO SUFFER ALSO IF WE ARE TO SERVE GOD. HEAR WHAT JESUS TOLD ANNANIAS ABOUT SAUL WHOM WE KNOW AS PAUL THE APOSTLE “FOR I WILL SHOW HIM HOW MANY THINGS HE MUST SUFFER FOR MY NAME’S SAKE.”
3 – GOD’S SERVANTS WILL BE REWARDED
CONSIDER THIS PROMISE TO GOD’S FAITHFUL SERVANTS FOUND IN A PARABLE SPOKEN BY CHRIST
‘Well done , good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’
B – HE SERVED THE NEEDS OF MAN
1 – THE MEDICAL NEEDS OF MAN
HOW MANY PEOPLE DID JESUS HEAL? THE BLIND, LAME, DEAF, DUMB, THOSE WITH DISEASE AND THOSE WHO WERE DEMON POSSESSED AND THE LIST GOES ON
2 - THE PHYSICAL NEEDS OF MAN
HE FED THE MULTITUDES AT LEAST TWICE
HE TOLD PETER TO GO FISHING IN ORDER TO PAY TAXES
3 – THE SPIRITUAL NEEDS OF MAN
HE CAME TEACHING AND PREACHING AND LEADING BY EXAMPLE
HE FORGAVE MANY OF THEIR SINS
HOW MANY TIMES DID JESUS SAY, YOUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN YOU?

II – A MAN SENT TO SACRIFICE
IN HEBREWS 9 WE FIND IT RECORDED THAT JESUS ONCE AND FOR ALL APPEARED UPON THIS EARTH TO PUT AWAY SIN BY THE SACRIFICE OF HIMSELF. HE WAS OFFERED UP AS A BLOOD SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS, BUT HE SACRIFICED MUCH MORE THAN THAT, AS IF THAT WAS NOT ENOUGH.
A – HE SACRIFICED HIS HEAVENLY HOME
B – HE SACRIFICED THE BASIC NEEDS OF LIFE ON EARTH
1 – FOOD/DRINK
a - HE FASTED FOR 40 DAYS IN THE WILDERNESS
b - DID HE EAT WHEN HE FED THE MULTITUDES?
c - WHILE ON THE CROSS HE SAID “I THIRST”
2 – AN EARTHLY HOUSE/HOME
a - “THE SON OF MAN HAS NOWHERE TO LAY HIS HEAD”
3 – HUMAN WILL
a – HE SAID “I CAME TO DO THE WILL OF HIM WHO SENT ME”
b - WHILE PRAYING IN THE GARDEN HE SAID “NOT MY WILL BUT THINE BE DONE”

III – A MAN SENT TO A SAVE
IN MATTHEW 1:21
