Jesus our Friend, Brother and King

But those who wish to boast

    should boast in this alone:

that they truly know me and understand that I am the Lord

Jeremiah 9:24a

This week we will be looking at the word that Pastor Marno Jansen shared on Sunday titled ‘Jesus our Friend, Brother and King’.

Firstly, we must realise that God is indescribable. He is self-sufficient, sovereign and omnipresent. He is our creator, our provider and perfect Father. We can’t try to make Him small enough to understand. He is so much more than we can comprehend.

However, He still wants to have a personal relationship with us. He has no need for us, because He is totally perfect, and yet He chooses to love us for exactly who we are. He initiates relationships with us, even when we don’t love Him at all and our response should be to seek Him with all our heart.

Finally, is our call to make His name known in all the world. Our salvation and relationship with God is not just for us, but also for us to share with others. Just as much as God loves us, He loves the whole world and He calls us to spread the Good News wherever we go.

  • Which aspect of God’s indescribable nature stands out to you and why?
  • Discuss some practical ways to make seeking God a priority.
  • How can you share your revelation of God’s nature and relationship with Him with someone else this week?
