Jesus’ Last Words
God initiated a massive, three-phase search and rescue strategy to find his lost children. The first phase was Israel. God wanted a nation through whom to show his character and to call people back to himself. The second phase was Jesus Christ. Jesus declared, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” We are lost and Jesus is the way back home. By his death on the cross and his resurrection, we can be reunited to our heavenly Father. The third phase is in The Story today—the church.
We will be looking at the Book of Acts, beginning with Acts 1:8.
