Hero Maker | Week 2
Speaker: Grant Agler
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing,
and they will do even greater things than these because I am going to the Father.
Being the aspiring hero leads to disappointment
Being the aspiring hero limits God
Someone invited me
Someone set an example for me
Someone trusted me
Someone taught me
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
RELY ON THE SPIRIT
“If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth.
The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE OF LOVE SET BY JESUS
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
DEMONSTRATE THE COMMUNITY INITIATED BY THE FATHER
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,
that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity.
Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
