The Suffering Servant

If we are to grow in our relationship with Jesus, we must be willing to share in his sufferings. That’s what Paul meant when he said “My goal is to know him and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings, being conformed to his death,” (Philippians 3:10, CSB). Think about it. Any close and life-giving relationship involves a willingness to share life experiences – whether good or bad. You might not be called to lay your life down for Jesus as a martyr. Your afflictions might be what Paul described as “light and momentary.” Still, we are called to faithfully exalt Christ no matter where you are. And when we endure it with patience, we will reap maturity in the Lord and receive his blessing.

From Series: "Reset"

One year ago, on March 15, 2020, church doors across the nation were shut. As we adapted to sheltering in place, many of us continued our worship online. Many more of us dropped out. In the course of the past year have you felt as though your day to day relationship with Christ is stuck on autopilot? Or maybe serving God has lost its luster as you sense it growing more going-through-the-motions and less meaningful. When it comes to your relationship with Jesus, have you lost the exciting and motivating first love you once enjoyed? In this sermon series, "Reset", Dr. Jim Mann shares the good news that what's been lost can be found. Join us as we restore the fire and conviction of your first love for Jesus as we learn His character, His glory, and His love for us.
