J E S U S : Son of God
In John's Gospel, he wrote with the purpose that we would believe that Jesus is the Son of God, completely equal and fully God in every essence of God's being. He also desired that many people would believe and have life in Jesus' name. John began his Gospel with those themes in mind and started laying the foundation for the deity of Christ. Jesus Christ is the eternally existent Word of God that created the entire Universe. He created all physical life, sustains all physical life, and breathes spiritual life into lifeless souls and shines in darkened hearts. May we testify of the majesty of who Christ is and declare the Good News of all He's done.
Scripture: John 1:1-8

    Out Of Sodom
    Throughout Scripture we see consistent themes of God's sovereignty, man's sinfulness, and the salvation of God's people. The rescue of Lot out of Sodom and Gomorrah is a picture of the greater salvation to be found in Jesus Christ. In this passage we see many parallels to the Good News of Jesus. We see the reality of the impending judgment, the severity of our sin, the offer of salvation, God's ability to save, and the call for us to exhibit a lifestyle of repentance. And underneath it all we see God's sovereign thread of the promise of salvation even in the midst of the darkest sins. May we share this Good News in our community and in our world.

    A Genesis Heart
    David was a man after God's own heart, but even he gave into his sinful desires and needed to repent. In Psalm 51, we see a man broken over his sin and in need of restoration. He needed God to create in him a clean heart out of nothing, a Genesis heart. May we follow David's example and daily confess our sins to God and repent of them. Turn to Christ as your ultimate satisfaction and enjoy the true joy of a relationship with Him.

    Walk Worthy
    In the incredible book of Ephesians, Paul details the immeasurable riches that are found in Jesus, and he explains that the worth of Christ should compel us to live worthy lives. In response to this journey through the entire book of Ephesians, may our lives be change by the truth of God in the Word of God revealed by the Spirit of God. May the Holy Spirit take these truths and root them deep in our hearts so that we would enjoy Christ and walk worthy for His glory.

    Even When It Hurts: I’ll Praise You
    If we're honest, life is really hard sometimes. It's easy to put on a facade and act as though everything is awesome, when it's not. In Psalm 13, we see that our sovereign and loving God can handle our biggest doubts and deepest pain. As we are honest with God about our pain, we can pray specifically for what we need God to provide in those moments. We can wrestle with the tension that our God is sovereign, but we still suffer. Let's praise God for the truth that we know, even when we don't feel that it's true.
    Scripture: Psalm 13

    The Unrivaled King
    In Psalm 2, we see that Jesus Christ is God's anointed King whose sovereignty is unrivaled. Though David was writing this Psalm out of his own experiences with persecution, we can clearly see that He was guided by the Holy Spirit to prophesy of things which would ultimately fulfilled by Jesus. The New Testament confirms that this passage pointed to a greater King, Jesus, and that people today can turn from their rebellion and trust Jesus as their King and Savior.

    filled | strengthened | thankful: a prayer for all believers
    The Colossian Church was being was being exposed to false teaching, and Paul continuously prayed that they would be filled the knowledge of God’s will, so that they would walk in a worthy manner. He also prayed that they would be strengthened by God’s might, so that they could patiently endure with joy. Lastly, he prayed that they would be thankful to God the Father for all that He has done in their lives. These are the types of things that we need to pray continuously for ourselves and for our church.

    The Pearl Beyond The Gates
    As Jesus continued His parables in Matthew 13, He detailed the salvation experiences of two types of people. Even though we may have different salvation experiences, we all have the same salvation story. We were once dead in sin and Christ has made us alive in Him. Upon receiving salvation, we are promised great rewards, and Jesus is the greatest of those rewards. The greatest aspect of Heaven is not the "mansions," the streets of gold, or the family reunions, but the greatest aspect of heaven is the presence of Jesus. When we realize that, we will live our lives in pursuit of Jesus because while we're waiting, we're not waiting. Jesus lives in us.

    Immeasurable Treasure
    In Matthew 13, Jesus tells many parables about the kingdom of heaven. The parable in verse 44 is a beautiful picture of the worth and majesty of Jesus Christ. He is the immeasurable treasure worth giving up everything for. May we see Jesus as that treasure and dig in His Word every day to see more of His worth and beauty. As we fall more in love with Jesus, may we show others the wonderful Treasure that is Jesus Christ.

    Work It Out
    When Paul was writing to the Philippians, he was encouraging them to exercise their faith in Jesus. Thankfully, we don't have to work out our salvation alone. God has given us His Holy Spirit to empower and enable us to become more like Jesus. May we make the effort daily to work out spiritually and exercise our faith for the benefit of ourselves and others around us.
    Scripture: Philippians 2:1-16
