Jesus Christ

Born of the virgin Mary, brought up as a carpenter, called twelve disciples, performed miracles and cast out demons, died on a cross, and rose from the dead.

We’ve heard the story countless times, but no matter how familiar we may be with who Jesus was and what He did for us on that cross, we can never be reminded enough of the purpose and truth behind Christ’s life, death, and resurrection.

Here are just three truths we can reflect on in light of this Easter season:

1. Jesus is the Christ who completed the work of the prophet, priest, king, and judge.

Jesus is the true Prophet, bridging us to our Holy God (John 14:6). He is the sacrificial Priest who shed His own blood to cleanse me of all my sin (Romans 8:2). He is the King who destroyed the enemy and freed us from eternal bondage (1 John 3:8). He is the final Judge (Revelations 20:10).

Jesus accomplished the work of the Christ through death on the cross and through His resurrection. Because Jesus is the Christ, He is the only Savior who can deliver mankind from the fundamental spiritual root problem of sin, satan, and spiritual separation/death. He declared “It is finished!” The work of salvation is complete! 

2. We are now children of God – holy and blameless before Him. 

Because we are covered by the blood of Jesus Christ, we are no longer subject to eternal separation from God and suffering! Our sins – past, present, and future – are forgiven, and we are no longer slaves to satan’s power and authority. 

We are now holy, righteous, blessed, precious, and children of God.

3. God’s promises are never broken.  

Even from the very beginning in Genesis 3:15, it was revealed that God would make a way. All of the Old Testament foreshadowed WHO that Savior would be and HOW He would fulfill that covenant promise. That covenant promise was fulfilled when Jesus, the Son of God, died on the cross for our sins, and rose from the dead — defeating sin and death once and for all and bridging the relationship between man and God. Because of the fulfillment of this covenant promise (as well as the other countless promises that were fulfilled), we can have full and complete faith in the promises of God. 

As we reflect on these truths, may we be further filled with awe at the free gift of grace that we have been given. May joy flood our hearts so that our praises to Him would overflow. May we continue to glorify Him in all that we do. 

Praise be to our God who has defeated death and sin once and for all!

Renew & Revive Spiritual Group Sign Up

This Renew & Revive (R&R) group is a program established by the team at Fully Health to provide a comprehensive approach to address all our needs – physical, mental, and spiritual. Through attending these complimentary group sessions, you will learn about the good news of Jesus Christ and how God will intervene during our journey toward achieving healing and greatest potential.

All individuals 18+ are welcome to attend! You do not need to be a Fully Health client or patient to attend. This service is free of charge. Please note, these sessions are not a clinical service. You may come and go as you like. We would be happy to have you whenever you may be available to join!

Wednesdays 7:30 – 8:30 pm on Zoom

What to expect from R&R
– To deeply understand, believe, and enjoy the Gospel, and know who I am
– To be able to have any question answered without judgment. For example, “Why am I struggling so much even though I have faith?” and “If I seek psychiatric treatment, does that mean my faith is small?”
– To experience the ability to fight the spiritual battle in life, especially regarding mental health struggles around me
– If Jesus is the Christ who solved my fundamental spiritual problem that led to all the “bad fruits” of life, then He is the answer to any other problem (mental and/or physical) that I may face on this earth.
