In this message, Jeff looks at the promise of the coming ‘Good Shepherd.’ Ezekiel 34 corrects the leaders of the day while pointing to the promise of the coming Shepherd-King who will rule with passion, care, tenderness, and justice. Listen in as we discover Jesus in the Old Testament and pray about how we can be more like Him.
Jesus wants to heal your soul...he died on the Cross to heal your soul. But you have to let him! So let Jesus take your Sin. Let Jesus take your Pain. Let Jesus take your Suffering. Then and only then will our souls be healed.
What does this scripture tell me about Jesus & how does this impact me? Asking/answering these two questions every time you open the Bible will help you understand God and our purpose/calling as we follow Him but some scriptures provide easier answers than others. In our passage for this week, we embrace the challenge of seeing Jesus in complaints, snake bites, confession, and healing.
Just before the tenth plague in Egypt, God instructed his people to choose a spotless lamb to slaughter and eat, and they were to paint the lamb's blood on their doorframes so the plague of death would "pass over" their homes. 1500 years later, Jesus became our perfect Passover lamb and instituted a new version of this ancient meal.
God's been revealing his character to mankind from the beginning, but it isn't always the easiest to see. Genesis 28 tells the story of Jacob's dream of a Hidden Staircase from Heaven covered in angels. Join us as we explore how this story connects to the past and to the future in Jesus.
Have you ever finished an Old Testament story and thought: ‘What on earth is going on here?’ Genesis 22, the story including Abraham, Isaac, and a sacrifice on a mountain often creates more questions than answers. Join us as we continue to explore how the person of Jesus shows up in the Old Testament and how the cross is central to our everyday theology.
During one of the longest post-resurrection encounters with Jesus, two followers were taught how all the writings of Moses and the prophets point directly to Christ. In this message, Jeff kicks off the summer series called “Burning Hearts” by emphasizing a Christocentric view of the Old Testament while unpacking the famous ‘Road to Emmaus’ passage in Luke 24.
We tell others through Proclamation and Power. It is a two part process. Jesus told others in these two ways: he proclaimed the message of the Kingdom in synagogues and open air preaching, and he also demonstrated the power of the Kingdom through healing the sick, casting out demons and raising the dead. We want to "do the two": proclaim the Good News with words, and demonstrate the Good News in power.
