Christian claim

We can find God in Jesus Christ. God is himself seeking us and we must ourselves seek God.
We are all brothers and sisters of the human family
Jesus’s unique and eternal relationship with God

J understood himself to be unique in his close relationship with the Father… and he was the only one who could reveal the Father (Matthew 11:27)

We may be ordinary, but we live in the realm of the extra-ordinary, when He lives in us.

TRUST and SUBMIT

“It is finished
Father , unto thy hands I commit my spirit”

Sense of purpose
Fulfilment

Bold
Unassuming
Gentle
Unselfish
Humble
Wisdom
Greatest self esteem
Greatest self sacrifice

In Jesus, Lord became servant
Complete self mastery

Gives us a new heart, a new nature, new birth, new creation

By believing we may live

Christianity has its roots in the mystery of human life. This faith is a way of understanding the unknowable. Wanted to understand the cycle of life, death and rebirth.
However, one has to be a believer to get into different levels of understanding, which is achieved through the power of faith.. Christianity is a far more active and personal relationship (with God). than other more fatalistic faiths.
The resurrection is the foundation of Christianity.
Jesus never lived as more than a man
‘The God of a second chance.’
Jesus never lowered his standards or modified his conditions to make his call more readily acceptable
It involved total commitment by his disciples.

God does his greatest works through his smallest people.
