Four Conversations of Jesus

This was a very good message preached by Wayne Brooks. The first conversation of Jesus is Fear Not. Jesus' main theme is fear not. He says this a lot, especially when he arose from the grave...and when someone saw him for the first time...and all the angels said it when people encountered them. The second conversation: Touch Me. after Jesus appeared, the disciples came to Thomas, and called to him, "Jesus has been risen from the dead!" and Thomas replied,"Unless I see the marks and feel them I will believe...". Eight days later they were in a house locked tight but Jesus still came. Thomas was with them this time. The disciples scattered becuase they were pretty sure Thomas would be called for this one, but Jesus simply said, " Thomas, come and touch me on my side." this is where the Roman Centurion had come and sliced his side and was left open. Thomas came and felt it, and said, "My Lord! I see you and I believe!" and Jesus replied, "Blessed are those who believe but do not see." So, we are blessed if we believe him. Third Conversation: Go Out. He told them to go out and preach and proclaim abot him, the son of God who was raised from the dead. and then, this is really where the gospel comes in: John 3:16. I've said it before, so I am not going to say the verse. but it really makes a bridge...Doesn't it? Fourth Conversation: Follow Me. In John 21:18-22 we hear this command twice, so if you have a bible, plz look at it, because this has already been a long post and if I do scripture to this would be a never ending post. speaking of that, I like the never ending story series...the movies. I haven't read the books if there is any...which I am pretty sure there is. If you ever hear a voice in you saying,"You don't need to follow christ, You need to do what you want. You are so much higher than that, and DON'T FOLLOW ANYONE BUT YOURSELF," don't listen, it is NOT true. but follow the voice that says,"Follow me, There is a world beyond this that you can only get to by following me. This world that I will lead you to has so much more to offer than this world." Listen to this voice because it is true. The first voice is the demon trying to get you NOT to follow god. This is wrong, and do not listen. Listen to Jesus, he is the one that is the truth. There is really nothing better to give your life to. You might feel this is gambling your whole life and yourself, but really it is the opposite. The first voice is all lies and deceptions. THIS VOICE IS GAMBLING YOUR LIFE! THE OTHER IS NOT! Please consider this. We had a fun time at the easter Party the other day...:)
