Session 3: Awake to Who Christ Is FOR Us
"Who do you say that I am?" - Matthew 16:15
In this session, David covers Jesus’ four-fold revolution: incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension. Concerning his incarnation we read in Colossians 1, “God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him” (vs. 19).
He became one of us, for us. His supremacy became visible through the totality of his earthly ministry, including his righteous life as he kept the Law perfectly on our behalf. Then, in his flesh he offered himself for us by his redemptive, sacrificial crucifixion, followed by his victorious resurrection to conquer death – for us.
We read in Colossians 1, “through him (the Father) reconciled to Himself all things … through his (the Son’s) blood … through whom we have redemption by his blood, the forgiveness of our sins”. But then, he ascended to the right hand of the Father.
So that what he will be Lord of ultimately he is lord of right now. The ascension is essential for the redemptive revolution Christ has accomplished for us. And so our eternal destiny is based on the redeeming work of Christ supreme – for us. It is totally sufficient.

After completing your video...
Spend a minute in silence, reflecting on today’s teaching.
What was the most meaningful part for you? How did it speak to you?
In what ways did today's teaching video help you see and think about God's Son in newer or fresher or larger terms?
In what ways did today's teaching video give you greater reasons to put your hope in Christ alone -- for your life, for your church, for your generation? As well as for eternity?
What one next step should today's teaching encourage you to take in your daily walk with our supreme King, the Lord Jesus Christ?
What is one insight about the glory of Christ you gained today that you would like to share with one other believer before the day is over, in order to help that person gain a little bit larger vision of the greatness of Christ, too?
If you were standing before Jesus on His throne right now, based on today's teaching what one thing would you like to say to the Father to express to Him your praise and gratitude for who His Son is right now?
What would you like ask the Father to do in your life by His Spirit that would deepen some facet of your relationship to His glorious Son?
