Need Reviving?

"NEED REVIVING?"

Hosea 6:3

Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord.  His going out is sure as the dawn; He will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.  (Hosea 6:3)

What are the healthy everyday choices and practices that would keep us in the best places for rain to fall?

Where are the dry places in your spiritual life right now?

  • Are you gripped by God’s Word?
  • Are you moved by opportunities to worship God?
  • Are you actively seeking out the mission and ministry of Christ?
  • Are you drawn to others who are drawn to Christ?

If we truly want to “press on” to know the Lord, Hosea has two good words for us:

1.  Revival is available!

  • “His going out is sure as the dawn.”

2.  Revival is abundant!

  • “He will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.”

Whoever Comes, Whoever Believes

"WHOEVER COMES, WHOEVER BELIEVES"

John 6:28-35

What do you think Jesus meant when He said, "I am the bread of life,"?

  • What is real bread?
  • What is real life?

What are the life stages of Christianity?

  • We begin by "seeing" Jesus.
  • When we see Jesus, we "come" to Him.
  • When we recognize Jesus is accessible, we "believe" Him.

The relationship God desires with you is offered by Him through Jesus.

  • It is through nothing on our part, except accepting it.

The "Bread of Life" is ours for the receiving.

"What do the bread and juice of communion remind you of today?

John 1:14

1.  Heaven in context

2.  Heaven and earth are distinct but overlapping.

3.  Temples

4.  Animal sacrifice as a means to deal with sin and injustice

5.  Jesus is described as the temple and the sacrifice.  He conquers evil and death by letting evil conquer him.  The judge is judged, and the victim becomes the victor.

6.  The church becomes a temple because of Jesus sacrifice.

7.  The new creation is rejoining of heaven and earth.

Please visit the website www.thebibleproject.com to review our past three worship services and to investigate all the material they have there.  It has been my aim to reveal a way that would not only teach but lead you to share with others what you’ve learned.  Thanks for allowing the space to look at things from a source that points us to our Savior and Lord.
