Week One sermon notes for series: “Jesus is in a Small Group…Are you?”
Today, we have a gathering of people who are interested in Jesus. Some of you love him. You follow after him. Others are newer to this church or perhaps brand new (first timers). Regardless, the central theme of all the songs, scriptures, dancing, shouting, preaching, praying is JESUS.
We are looking to HIM for our salvation. We are wanting him to be an active part of our life.
I have a secret that I want to share with you. Many of you might not know.
I know where he meets with people.
I know how you can get to know him better.
I know where Jesus hangs out.
AND I WANT TO LET YOU IN ON THIS SECRET, and so I have titled this message series:
JESUS IS IN A SMALL GROUP. Are you?
Jesus taught 5000 people and then fed them (Mark 6). He led 120 to the upper room (Acts 1). He sent 70 out in the Gospels to teach (Luke 10).
However, the reason that we are sitting here today is not because of the 5000 or the 120.
The reason that the gospel message is alive and well and continuing to bring freedom to people 2000 years after Jesus walked on the earth is because he spent the majority of his time with 12 men and a few women.
