We Are Grace Point Church - Week 1 - Live FOR Jesus

We are Grace Point Church

Speaker: Ty Neal
Date: January 24, 2016

Join us as we focus on who we are as a church and the mission God has called us to here in North Las Vegas and beyond.

Live for Jesus

Key Phrase: We live for Jesus in every area of our lives. Statement: Above all else, we at Grace Point Church live for Jesus. Everyone lives for something or someone. We believe that Jesus is worth living for in all areas of our lives because he is the only one who truly sets us free and provides us with our purest sense of purpose, identity and value. He has given his life for us and the only way we can properly respond is to live our lives for him. This provides a radically new orien-tation to life that allows us to live for Jesus holistically with our lives, our homes, our vocations, our time and resources - everything! Jesus truly affects everything!

Big Idea:

Big Idea: Live FOR Jesus


What do I live for? (Philippians 1:21)

Philippians 1:21

For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.


For me, living is __________


Dying is __________

Philippians 1:18b-19

What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed, and in that I rejoice. Yes, and I will rejoice,

Philippians 1:20-21

as it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Philippians 1:22

If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell.

Philippians 1:23

I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.

Philippians 1:24-26

But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account. Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith, so that in me you may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus, because of my coming to you again.

Philippians 1:21

For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.


God guide me. May the eye of God look before me, the ear of God hear me, the word of God speak for me. May the hand of God protect me, the way of God lie before me, the shield of God defend me, the host of God save me. May Christ shield me today. Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit, Christ when I stand, Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me. Amen. (Prayer of St. Patrick)
