How does a blessed person look like? On what basis is someone blessed? A blessed man does not: 1) Walk with the wicked. 2) Stand with mockers. 3) Sit in the seat of mockers. A blessed man: 1) Delights in the law of the Lord. 2) Meditates on the law of the Lord day and night. Then he will be fruitful and productive in all seasons.
We have been given all authority to GO and make disciples of all nations. The baton has been passed onto us: 1) Respond to the call to make disciples of all nations - invading territories with the Gospel. 2) Go with the intention of making
disciples of all nations. Share what we have learnt with others and connect with people - first we have to connect to Jesus Christ. 3) Know that Jesus Christ is with you. People matter to God so should they matter to us.
Every child of God should be ready to unashamedly proclaim the gospel to all; as a person who possesses and can share what can impart life, I am indebted to the people of my generation. I owe it to my God; I owe it to my Lord Jesus Christ; I owe it to the people of my generation; I owe it to the intrinsic power of the gospel

Every crisis is an opportunity in disguise to learn, to adjust, to change, to improve, to grow, etc..., or even to refocus on what truly matters to the individual or the organization
Therefore don’t react to it, rather respond appropriately

The Christ of Christians is the only true Christ: 1. His Value - Jesus Christ is the only one who connects you to God 2. His Influence - Jesus Christ is humanity's only hope 3. His Supremacy - Jesus Christ is not divine, He is deity. Jesus Christ is life's centre of gravity - nothing will hold if you remove Christ. Now that you know the value of Christ, why would you let go of Christ?
Serious observation leads to serious conversation. The Christ of Christians is prominent because of his influence. Christ Jesus is humanity’s only hope as his name provides: i) Identification, ii) Description and iii) Distinction. Five distinctive characteristics that make him stand head and shoulders above the rest: i) Resourceful, ii) Insightful iii) Strongest Energizer iv) Life-giving or Life-sustaining and v) Effective bridge-builder. A glorified life is attainable if you adjust that your problem is not your humanity, but your fallenness.

Simple observation lead to serious conversation. 1) We are living in perilous times. The real danger is: Deception, Distraction, Disaster, Desolation
and Destruction. The real emancipation from the false christs is reverence to the true Christ. 2) Our belief-system is a very big deal. Because belief affects behaviour at the deepest level of the soul, which in turn affects destiny. Believe right, you will live right. 3) The Christ of Christians is the only true Christ. The Christ of Christians is precious - the most valuable Messiah. His connection to the Father: i) Connects us to eternal life. ii) Connects us to power for living. iii) Connects us to each other. iv) Connects us to abundant life.
Because of this first important reason, you should watch-out for false christs, welcome and worship the Christ of Christians so that you can win in life.
