Summary: In a day when so much is vying for our attention, the Scriptures tell us to look to (to fix our focus on) Jesus Christ... "Looking unto Jesus!"

  Study Tools

1. THE CROWNED CHRIST

• Christ = Messiah – “anointed” – Position of the Administration & the Power of the Office

Matt 3:17 – He Pleased the Father

Matt 28:18 – He is Full of Power

John 1:14 – Because He Came

• Phil 2:9-11 – He is exalted – HIS NAMES…

• Rev 5:12-13 – He is the Crowned Christ

PRAISE HIM!!

2. THE CAPTAIN OF OUR SALVATION

• Captain = Prince, Originator, Leader, Founder, Pioneer, Author

• Heb 12:2 – Pioneer of our Salvation

Think about when he authored our salvation…

He had to find a word that described our condition – SIN

But He found a word that described our escape – SALVATION

He wrote SALVATION on the paper of our sin debt

He wrote SALVATION with the pen made from the rusty nails

He wrote SALVATION with the ink of his crimson blood

He signed the payment with His resurrection from the dead…

He is is our Captain – our Commander in Chief.

Illus. – The battle in Kosovo (Commander & Captain & Private)

POEM – “The Marching Christ”

OBEY YOUR CAPTAIN – NOT BECAUSE YOU’RE COMMANDED – BECAUSE OF WHO HE IS…

3. THE CONQUERING SAVIOUR

• Conqueror – Winner, Victor, Challenged, Deliverer

• Gen 3:15 – The Prediction

John 16:33 – The Person

• Rev 6:2 – The Power

Illus. – Joshua didn’t need help conquering the land of Canaan – he was told to possess it – to go into a conquered land

Canaan pictures a victorious life – POSSESS IT!!

• Destroy – ABOLISH – render inoperative

• The Devil’s Tools are as useless as a Junkyard Reject!

• Freed from Sin’s Bonds – Slaves don’t have fellowship

• Freed to enter into God’s Presence – Slaves can’t see the king

• Freed to be a Heavenly Citizen – Slaves can’t be travelers

• Freed to be Bound Again…

• BY HIS LOVE 1 Cor 5:14

• The Love of Christ Constraineth Me

4. THE COMPASSIONATE PRIEST

• Compassion – Sympathetic, Empathetic, Lover

John 3:16 – His Love Gave Up Heaven

John 15:13 – His Love Gave His Life

• Rom 8:35-39 – His Love Brings Victory

Jude 21 - His Love Guards Us

The Perfect God was “PERFECTED” - WOW! That’s deep!

He lacked something… to feel the pain of his people.

To be a good high priest, you must associate with them.

1. YES, Jesus came to seek & save the Sinner – SALVATION

2. YES, He came to the cry of helpless babies for SUCCORING

CONCLUSION – You are loved by the Creator, the Crowned Messiah, You are Part of His Army, You are living in Conquered Territory ---

Consider CHRIST! What will you do with Jesus?
