Session 8: Awake to Who Christ Is UPON Us
"Who do you say that I am?" - Matthew 16:15
In this session, we explore with David how Christ’s reign is inexhaustible, there is always “so much more” the Father desires to give us in Jesus.
Sometimes our Redeemer King comes upon us when his glory breaks through by outpourings of the Holy Spirit in the renewal of his people – what some call “Christ Awakenings.” During these times, Jesus intensifies and accelerates our experiences of his supremacy.
Our Lord is also passionate for the consummation of all things. One day he will come “upon us” in a spectacular, bodily return, in order to triumph throughout the universe forever. Both now and later, the “increase of his Kingdom” has no end (Isaiah 9).
We wait continually for more of Christ supreme, not only “then” but “now”, as we pray “Come, Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22).

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?
