City Church Boise Sermons

Jan 26, 2020

Through the incarnation of the Son of God, Immanuel: God came near to sinners like us to befriend and thereby save us from sin. 

The incarnate Son of God calls us to incarnate him, to bring God near to sinners like us, as we befriend and thereby point to him. 


12 “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

Matthew 7:12 ESV


18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:18-20


  • How will you be a Jesus-like friend to them? How will you enter and listen to their story? Share your story? Look for opportunities to tell the Jesus story? Who is God calling you to engage this week? Someone within your circles or beyond?
  • Will you follow Jesus in befriending someone who isn't like you as God gives opportunity? Will you lay yourself down to embody Kingdom justice in our city to point those around you to him?
  • What lesser things will we give ourselves to instead?
