Sermon Text: Isaiah 11.1-9

1. Jesus came to sacrifice Himself (John 12:27; Isaiah 53).

Jesus came to show us how to live (Luke 9:23; 1 Corinthians 11:1; Galatians 2:20).

3. We were given at least four resources in order to live as He lived (John 14:12-21):

The Bible (John 14-16; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Christian Community (John 17:21; Acts 2:42; Ephesians 3:10-11).

Prayer (John 16:24; Acts 4:31; Mark 1:35).

The Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8; Luke 24:49).
