Who Is Jesus?

Watch the full teaching here April 2, 2017 // Have you ever seen a video of a baby who, with hearing aids, suddenly hears his parents' sweet, loving voices for the first time, or when glasses are first placed in front of a baby's eyes, which are then finally able to focus on the joyful father with a smile and tears on his face? It is as though the baby is falling in love all over again with his parents! Ask yourself the question, “Who is Jesus?” Maybe you know the name of Christ, have read about the life of Christ, but deep down you don’t really know what you think about Christ.

Matthew 13:44-46, Mark 4:26-29, Matthew 6:25-27, Matthew 6:33 #teaching #TheStory

John 3:2-16 #teaching #TheStory
