Jesus Lived with True Purpose

Our claim to have Christ in us (Col 1:27) has to be proven. We must value what is valuable to Christ (1 John 2:3-6). What was Jesus like in His youth (Luke 2:46-52)? What was Jesus like as an adult (John 13:5-20; Phil 2:5-7; 1 Pet 2:21-25; John 17:4)? This proves that Jesus lived with the true purpose!!!

I. JESUS’ PURPOSE

A. To tell about God & the Kingdom (Luke 4:43; Mark 1:38; 9:1; John 3:3-5)

B. To demonstrate obedience (Heb 10:7; John 4:34; 6:38; Matt 4:1-11)

C. To command change (Mark 1:15; Luke 5:31-32; 1 John 3:8; John 9:39; 10:10)

D. To seek out souls to save (Luke 19:10; Matt 18:10-14; John 10:11)

E. To accept the cost (Mark 10:33-34; John 12:32; Rom 5:19; 1 Tim 1:15)

1. His purpose should be our purpose (1 Pet 2:9-10)

II. KEEPING JESUS’ PURPOSE

A. Start early in life (Luke 2:49; John 9:4)

B. Be resolute through life (Luke 9:51; 9:57-62)

C. Be prayerful when the work is hard (Luke 22:42; John 12:27-28)

D. Rejoice in the outcome (Rom 5:3-5; Jas 1:2-4)
