“Jesus’ power to take the place of death and raise to life is incredibly personal. He calls you by name! ‘Come out! I’m taking your place!’”

August 18, 2019

As we’ve looked at the signs of Jesus, they’ve revealed Jesus’ glory. He has shown us who He is. The signs have been pointing us to Him. But here in the last sign of His public ministry, we are being pointed forward. It’s calling us to do more than contemplate who He is, but to follow Him because of who He is. This sign is a call to trust Jesus finally and concretely with a living trust that actively shapes your life.

Application Questions

  1. How have these stories of Jesus’ signs reshaped your relationship with Him?
  2. Which of the four foundations discussed is the most compelling to you? How does it encourage you to follow Jesus more confidently? 
  3. In what ways are you hedging on what’s possible with Jesus? What action steps might be required by a confident trust in Him?
