How is the creation of man and the death and resurrection of Jesus for all men connected? Day 6 of creation to the cross tells us. Discover the connection between the first man, the God-Man (Jesus), and us today. As we celebrate Easter, remember that it’s not about the bunnies or the eggs or new church clothes. It’s all about Jesus.
On Day 3 of creation we notice that the earth God spoke into being was the same earth Jesus would one day come to as a baby in a manger. The very water He gathered together into one place would be the same water He would one day be baptized in and walk upon. In "It's All About Jesus, Day 3, Pastor Mike continues to guide us through the relationship of Jesus as God of creation and Jesus as Savior of the world.
All throughout the Bible, we encounter Jesus. In the Old Testament, we find Jesus (logos) in the story of creation. In the New Testament, we understand that Jesus is the image of the invisible God who created all things and holds it all together. Jesus has always existed. Jesus is God. He is the Word (logos) made flesh. Today as we begin day 2 of creation in "It's All About Jesus" may He help us to see that He has always been with us from the beginning to the end and He has a plan.
Sometimes the path that God chooses for us doesn't always make sense. In fact, His ways are often unpredictable and unconventional. When we find ourselves being "Overwhelmed: by Uncertainty," there is one thing we can know for sure; God is always at work.
When the wicked Haman devised a plot against the Jewish people, Queen Esther found herself in a very difficult situation. She, too, was secretly a Jew and Haman's wicked scheme would eventually reveal her Jewish identity. She was forced with the decision to either walk away and remain silent or face the problem head-on. In "Overwhelmed: When Quitting Looks Appealing," Queen Esther learned that God can bring good out of the most difficult situations when we refuse to give up.
Do we compromise our convictions just to go along with the crowd or do we stand up for what we believe? In "Overwhelmed: When Compromise Comes Calling," we see where Daniel was faced with this dilemma early on in his ministry. Daniel purposed in his heart to follow his convictions and God took care of the rest.
