Spiritual Sermons "Steps To Jesus"

Prayer Thank you brothers and sisters in Jesus for allowing this servant to speak messages from GOD to you. Let us pray and thank GOD for this power flow. (meekly) "Our Father in heaven thank you for holy communication (pause)...that flows via your Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Keep our hearts humble and meek, is our prayer in Jesus Name. Amen"

Brain Storm (enthusiasm)What are the Steps in becoming a Christian? Can some of us name things we should do?(Write them on blackboard)

So these are some of the steps we feel the Bible tells us to do as Christians? How do we know this is all there is? (silence pause) More importantly what is the correct order of Steps to Jesus? Does the Bible list such steps in chronlogical order found in one Bible passage of Scritpure? Wouldn't that be the greatest exciting discovery (passion in voice) of the Science of Salvation ever !!

Steps To Jesus

repent

confess sins

read Bible

pray

witness

Introduction When Jesus lived on the earth the only Scriptures He had was the Old Testament. Another name for Jesus is Joshua. Another name for Jesus in Hebrew is Yeshua or Hosea. ( aside- As the J is a mispelling for Y or H in Hebrew) Open your Bibles and let's look at Hosea 1 and verse 2, for clues to the Steps to Jesus. (pause to wait - invite one to speak the verse) Notice Hosea who is an allegory of Jesus, is told by GOD to marry a woman of whoredom.

(read again) Hosea 1:2 And YAHWEH said to Jesus, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredom...Hosea 1:3 And so Jesus went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim;... It's amazing (pause surprise) the Father asks Jesus to marry mankind while in whoredom. And Jesus goes out and seeks a suitable woman by a specific name and family clan. Jesus knows where you live, Jesus how you live and Jesus knows your very name.(Blackboard - rub off old list and write...)

Steps To Jesus

Jesus knows

where you live

how you live

your name

Unfaithful All through chapter two, the woman seeks other lovers and becomes unfaithful. (pause) Jesus sends tribulations to make her wake up (tone)...but nothing succeeds, she runs after her lovers...

Ho 2:23 And ... and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God.

How amazing people who are not Jews, Jesus calls as His own, headhunters and prostitutes saved because they were willing to change and follow Jesus...Jesus knows what your doing...Jesus knows how you live...

Steps To Jesus

Jesus knows

where you live

how you live

your name

Slaves to sinning Let's look up Hosea 3 and verse 2: (wait for one to read allowed) Notice the sinner is purchased by Jesus for 15 pieces of silver. Jesus was purchased as a crimminal from Judas for 30 pieces of silver, yet here is a lowly house slave up for sale, (wait - pause) 15 pieces of silver.

Hosea 3:2 So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver...

(pause)...Notice how lowly and humbly Jesus goes to redeem His wife back...and so at the end of this amazing story of individual salvation, we find the chronological steps one has to take to come into the arms of Jesus and remain abiding in Him. (Go to blackboard and rub out each line as you say them)...Jesus knows ...where you live...how and live...and your very name...

Steps To Jesus

Step 1 - The sinner's need Notice in Hosea 14:1 begins the chronological Steps to Jeus.. (Can we have one read allow Hosea 14 and verse 1)

Ho 14:1 O SINNER, return unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity {guilt}.

(read again and pause)...notice the sinners need, is to return to Jesus...why ? (pause)...because we have fallen by our guilt."

Please look up the first of the Father's ten commandments of heaven, and (we read together as one voice:)...Ex 20:2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Notice turning back to Hosea 13 and verse 4 (read this for them .. pause..missing which words added..)... Ho 13:4 Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me:... NOTICE there are some added words to the first commandment ..have no Saviour but me Jesus.

So the first step to Jesus is to be willing you need a Saviour such as Jesus...Did not Jesus, a Saviour come down to earth and die for your sins in their penalty, so you could live better than you currently do now? Jesus knows where you live and how you are living, but He wants you to live a better life. Are you willing to let Jesus in? Do you want a Saviour?

Steps To Jesus

1 I AM your Saviour. Be willing.

Step 2 - Repent Notice in Hosea 14 verse 2 - the first part... (reading for the congregation)

Hosea 14:2 Take with you words, and turn to the LORD:

(pause) ...take words with you..what's that ? (pause) Bible study... (pause) ..and what does Bible study promise ? (pause) ..to make you return to Jesus!

When was the last time you read Jesus words, and discovered Jesus knows how your living ? And Jesus (pause) knows (pause) where you live ? And Jesus knows your very (pause) name..

Steps To Jesus

1 I AM your Saviour. Be willing.

2 I AM your words. Be studying.

Step 3 - Confess Notice in Hosea 14 verse 2 - the second part... (reading for the congregation)

Hosea 14:2 ..say unto him {Jesus}, Take away all iniquity {guilt}, and receive us graciously:...

(pause) ...say unto Jesus,..what's that ? (pause) prayer... (pause) ..and what does prayer promise ? (pause) ..to make one feel loved by Jesus grace!

When was the last time you prayed and talked to Jesus, and discovered Jesus knows how your living ? And Jesus (pause) wants to give you His (pause) grace ? Good things flowing over and pressed down because Jesus knows your very (pause) name..and Jesus wants you to live better than you currently do now..

Steps To Jesus

1 I AM your Saviour. Be willing.

2 I AM your words. Be studying.

3 I AM your power. Be praying.

Step 4 - Fruit Notice in Hosea 14 verse 2 - the last part... (reading for the congregation)

Hosea 14:2 ..so will we render the calves {fruit} of our lips ...

(pause) ...when we spend time with Jesus, we have fruit on our lips (pause) praise... (pause) ..that confess His name with joy to others..! (pause) and others come to us to enjoy Jesus fruits of the Holy Spirit maturing in us..

When was the last time you had fruits of the Holy Spirit so graceful that others came to you to take away God's fruit, because of your love in Jesus ? (pause) Jesus wants to give you His (pause) fruit ? Praising Jesus over and over because Jesus knows your very (pause) name..and Jesus wants you to live with His power flowing through your life right now..

Steps To Jesus

1 I AM your Saviour. Be willing.

2 I AM your words. Be studying.

3 I AM your power. Be praying.

4 I AM your fruit. Be sharing.

Summary My brothers and sisters in Jesus (meekly) Jesus knows about our whoredom lives, Jesus came to purchase us as slaves to sinning, (pause).Jesus knows how we are living, Jesus knows our very name (read through the Steps to Jesus, from the Blackboard, pointing to each step while reading the Scripture passage in Hosea 14: 1 and 2...)...

Steps To Jesus

1 I AM your Saviour. Be willing.

2 I AM your words. Be studying.

3 I AM your power. Be praying.

4 I AM your fruit. Be sharing.

Do these four things daily and be sure of a vibrant powerful relationship in Jesus, knowing you were once a lost sinner, but now you are saved and found growing in His grace and allowing His fruits of character to grow where you live at the very place where your name and Jesus name abides.
