OPENING PRAYER / CALL TO WORSHIP
Who is Jesus? There are many diverse answers to that question. Even during his life on earth, Christ’s very presence was a point of remarkable debate. Some said Jesus was God, and others said he was demon possessed. Some said Jesus was a good teacher, and others called him a liar. Some said he was brilliant, and others labeled him insane. Jesus was applauded as a prophet, and he was dismissed as a babbling blasphemer.
So who is this Jesus? In the words of Hebrews 1:3, we are told Jesus is “the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature.” Jesus said: If you have seen me, you have seen the Father (see John 14:9). Paul said: “He is the image of the invisible God” (Colossians 1:15).
In Hebrews chapter 2 we see that imprint in four pictures. A king who got involved, a champion who saves, a brother who is not ashamed, and a priest who can help.
Is this is who Jesus is to you?
If not, He wants to be.
Today as we continue this time of worship, let us reflect on how these images of Jesus change everything about our lives.
As you worship through this digital gathering, pray that you will be open-hearted as you surrender you thoughts, desires, and actions to the Lord.
(pick someone to pray this scripture out loud)
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
5 You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

Time of Response
Take a few minutes of silence. Allow your own thoughts to quiet and be still. Then pray together with those around you:
Giving is an act of worship, and right now, giving supports the ways we are recreating ministry for this unique time, and allows us to keep our team intact. Awakening Church exists to be the catalyst for spiritual awakening in Bellevue and beyond by living the life of a Jesus follower, and that continues when we are unable to meet together in person.
Giving is also an expression of faith that the Father will continue to provide for our every need. We encourage you to stop and thank God for all that He has provided for you in this season, and ask Him what you should give.

"No Other Name"
"I Am Loved"
In eternity we're going to sing on and on and it will be never-ending joy, ever-deepening joy. In a challenging season like this, we want to remember how sinners like us got such a promise!
All he achieved is now offered to you as a gift received through a surrendered life. The Father looks upon you as wholly accepted and perfected in the Beloved. If you can grasp that, and live in that triumph, what a life you will live!
“By one offering he has perfected for all time those who are sanctified. .”
