Session 7: Awake to Who Christ Is THROUGH Us
"Who do you say that I am?" - Matthew 16:15
In this session, David helps us investigate how Christ’s reign is manifested as his Spirit works through his Church to reach with the Gospel the unloved, disinherited, oppressed, impoverished and, above all, unreached, whether neighbors or nations.
Jesus reigns as he empowers his people to further the Gospel ministry worldwide. Concerning this dimension of Christ’s reign through his followers, Paul writes about “the commission God gave me … to make known among the nations the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ … to this end I labor, struggling with all His energy he so powerfully works in me” (Colossians 1).
Christ scatters the strongholds of dark powers as he brings God’s purposes to their ordained climax. Our mission advance, even when it involves suffering for Christ, is all about experiencing the victorious supremacy of Christ now.

Presented by David Bryant, this session will answer these questions:
What does “Christ THROUGH us” tell me about who he is today?
How does Christ extend his ministry through our ministry?
Why is it vital for me see the whole Christ if I’m to share him?
How do spiritual warfare and martyrdom reveal more of him?
How does God want to release Christ’s ministry through me?
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?
Reflect 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?
