"United with Christ and Each Other"
December 6, 2015 Series: Jesus Is _______.
Passage: 1 John 1:1–1:10
Question: How did Jesus carry out the Father's will? How do we also carry out our Father's will?
Answer: Jesus was filled with the Spirit at His baptism. The Spirit empowered and enabled Him to be fully obedient to His Father. We also, filled with His Spirit, are His witnesses to the world.
Scripture: Matthew 3:16-17; Acts 1:8
16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
…you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
