A Jesus-Shaped Life: “The Mission of Jesus”
PALM SUNDAY! Scripture:  Luke 15:4-10
 
If God created a poster, it might have a picture of people and read: “LOST: My prize creation. Looks something like me; they wandered off and may look beaten up and hungry.” Many people do not have a relationship with the God—living as if he doesn’t exist. Jesus is looking for his people, and we get to be part of the search party.

    A Jesus-Shaped Life: “The Justice of Jesus”
    Scripture:  Matthew 12:18-21
     
    Justice won’t be complete or perfect until Jesus returns. We will always have to live with some unfairness and injustice until then. That doesn’t mean we shrug our shoulders and accept it. Love acts.

    A Jesus-Shaped Life: “The Courage of Jesus”
    Scripture:  Romans 12:1-2, Luke 9:23-27
     
    We might think our lives would be changed if we had more friends, more money, or less stress. Transformation comes from changing our minds, not from changing our circumstances. A Jesus-shaped life requires a Jesus-shaped mind.

    A Jesus-Shaped Life: “The Relationships of Jesus”
    Scripture:  Ephesians 5:1-12
     
    Becoming like Jesus means taking on some of his traits and characteristics. There is one trait of Jesus that rises to the top of them all: love. Christlikeness shows up as love.

    A Jesus-Shaped Life: “The Obedience of Jesus”
    Scripture:  Luke 6:46-49
     
    We are all tempted to say, ‘I know a shortcut,’ to God’s directions in our lives. There is a name for those shortcuts: sin. And Jesus told us it doesn’t end well. Rule-keeping is not God’s aim; transformation is his intent.
