Sermon Notes
Comfort in the Greatness of Jesus ~ Revelation 1

We find blessing in reading and obeying what God has said in this book (1:1-3)

We should take comfort and joy in who God is and who he is making us through Jesus (1:4-10)

  • Who God is…
    • The Eternal One, the Beginning and the End
    • The source of grace and peace
    • The Almighty King of kings
    • The sacrificed Savior of the world
    • The resurrected Witness of the Father
    • The One who conquered death and now holds the keys
    • The One who dwells among his churches
    • The One who will return in glory
  • Who God has made you through Jesus…
    • His loved ones
    • Those freed from sin
    • A kingdom of priests
  • Therefore…
    • Rest in God’s grace, enjoying peace with him as his beloved children
    • Serve in your priesthood by doing good to, praying for, and sharing the gospel with others that they might rejoice with us
    • Endure patiently through trials knowing they are temporary and the best is yet to come
    • Don’t fear death or any enemy because the sovereign, resurrected King dwells with us
