Summary: What did Jesus do for us?

  Study Tools

INTRODUCTION

It has almost become cliché to ask, “What would Jesus do?” This question that was taken from Charles Sheldon’s book, "In His Steps", has become a common household phrase. It is a good question to ask and one that we need to ask ourselves every single day, but before WWJD can mean anything to us we first need to ask, “What did Jesus do?” What did he do that would make us want to emulate his actions?

There is no way everything that Jesus did (and continues to do) could be covered in one message. I am sure that if someone else were writing this they would choose to discuss something that I have chosen not to. I recognize that this topic is rich in subject matter and I challenge you to take the time to go through the Bible and look for yourself at all of the wonderful things that our Savior has done. You may be surprised at what you find.

What did Jesus do?

I. HE CREATED EVERYTHING

John 1:1-3, Colossians 1:16,17

II. HE CAME TO EARTH AS A MAN

VIII. HE SUFFERED ON THE CROSS

A. To bear our sins – 1 Peter 2:24 – Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

IX. HE DIED

Mark 15:33-37

A. Because of our sins – 1 Corinthians 15:3 – For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures.
