JESUS IS (LIFE GROUP FOR TEENAGERS)
The subject is there, and so is the verb, but what comes next? Your answer could shed light on the path to becoming who you were made to be.
In these pages, Judah Smith fills out that sentence again and again, each time further revealing the character of Jesus. He writes as if to a friend, illustrating the importance of Christ’s message to modern men and women. This is a book for new believers, for life long followers, and for the merely curious.
Judah Smith shows us the Jesus that somber paintings and hymns fail to capture. With passion, humor, and conviction, he shows that Jesus is life. Jesus is grace. Jesus is your friend. Jesus is a new and better way to be human.
The God of the universe has made you some big promises. He made them first in the Old Testament, and they remain at the core of his heart and have never changed. They're the key to your fulfillment and to his plans for you, both in this life and the life to come. God wants to rescue you from bondage. And he wants you to be a part of a family that is making a difference.
In the ancient celebration of Passover, we find a picture of God's heart for us in the four cups of wine, representing each of the core promises. Church of the Highlands pastor and New York Times bestselling author Chris Hodges reveals that, no matter where we are on our spiritual journey, these four cups of promise provide a simple, powerful, unforgettable way of reaching our potential and growing closer to God.
Your thirst for more will finally be quenched--and you'll experience a wellspring of joy, hope, and purpose.
