1. WE EXIST FOR THE GLORY OF GOD. 2. GOD IS GLORIFIED THROUGH CHRIST AS HIS GOSPEL IS PROCLAIMED,BELIEVED, AND OBEYED,TRANSFORMING THE BELIEVER TO BECOME LIKE CHRIST. 3. THE HOLY SPIRIT CREATES A NEW KIND OF COMMUNITY THAT REFLECTS CHRIST TO THE WORLD. 4. MEMBERS OF THIS COMMUNITY DEVELOP OTHERS TO THRIVE ACCORDING TO GOD’S DESIGN. 5. A CHRIST-CENTERED COMMUNITY SEEKS THE GOOD OF ITS COMMUNITY THROUGH HOSPITALITY, WORK, AND SERVICE, FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.

Glory and Grace Tried and Dismissed • September 20, 2020 • Pastor Phil Burggraff
The trial of Jesus demonstrates the following: 1. The world’s power systems aren’t in control. (28–32) 2. Truth answers a who question not a what question (33–38a) 3. Most look at the Father’s Son and reject him (38b–40) 4. Those who reject Jesus want him humiliated (1–7) 5. True power uses its authority for the benefit of others (8–11) 6. Jesus as king would serve as the final Passover lamb (12–16) Main Idea: We must embrace the humiliating sacrifice of Jesus to experience true power.
