Gospel Mystery and the Church’s Revelation
In Ephesians 3, Paul explains that mystery that was given to the prophets in the Old Testament had been revealed. The truth that the Gentiles were now included in the family of Jesus Christ through His gospel was this "mystery" that Paul referred to. The mystery is revealed by God to everyone, and the Church is responsible to share the Good News of Jesus to the world.
Scripture: Ephesians 3:1-13

    Grace Through The Father’s Eyes
    Series: FOUND
    As Jesus shared the story of a man with two sons, He explained how the younger son got his inheritance from his father and proceeded to spent it on extravagant and sinful living. When the younger son reached the lowest point in his life, he realized that he needed to return to his father's house. However, when the son was still far away, the father ran to him and poured out his love and grace onto his son. From this passage, we see a small picture of the grace and love that God has shown us. May we be humbled that when we were unclean because of our sin, God was willing to give to us the righteousness of Christ, and may we share that Good News with others.
    Scripture: Luke 15:11-24

    Mercy
    In the parable of the unforgiving servant, our own forgetful tendencies are exposed. We often fail to show others mercy because we forget how much Christ has forgiven us. When we look to Jesus and see the infinite mercy He continues to pour out on us, we can learn to show the same love toward others and learn to forgive as we have been forgiven.

    The Relentless Pursuit
    Series: FOUND
    In the second part of Jesus' parable in Luke 15, we see that God's relentless pursuit of the lost is driven by His desire to display His glory through Jesus Christ. By observing how passionately the woman searched for her coin, we can see how the value of something dictates the effort of the pursuit. Our worth and value can be seen in all that Jesus did on the cross to redeem us. Through His Holy Spirit, God pursues after lost souls and will do whatever it takes to find them. We must have that same passion to seek the lost around us.
    Scripture: Luke 15:8-10

    The Good Shepherd
    Series: FOUND
    In Luke 15:1-7, Jesus shared a parable about a man who searched for and rescued his lost sheep. This first part of the larger parable explained how God relentlessly pursues the lost, through Jesus, for the glory of His name. We also see that the grace of Jesus meets us where we are. As we tune our hears to hear God’s voice, surrender to Him, and rest in Him, we will become overwhelmed by His presence. May the acts of God’s love point us the greatness of God and His glory, and may we see Jesus as the Good Shepherd.

    Beyond The Three Days: Our Need For Jesus Since Eden
    If you journey through the Bible, you can see how the Easter story encompasses far more than just three days. From the early days in Eden, God promised a Messiah that would come to redeem mankind. Jesus, God the Son, was always God's plan. As we live each day, may God open our eyes to see the greatness of Jesus in His Word, and may we share His Good News with others.

    Who Is My Neighbor Pt.2
    The lawyer in Luke 10 was hoping to be able to justify himself by asking Jesus to clarify who his neighbor was. If loving his neighbor neighbor meant loving his fellow Jews, he likely would have been justified. However, Jesus made it very clear to him, and all of us, that loving our neighbor means that we must lay down our pride, and serve all people no matter their race or beliefs. May we truly seek to love God, love people, and love others by displaying and declaring the good news of Jesus Christ.

    Who Is My Neighbor Pt.1
    In Luke 10, Jesus was approached by a lawyer who asked Jesus how he might inherit eternal life. Jesus modeled what it means to love God and your neighbors with your whole heart. This is not possible for us apart from God's supernatural work within us. May we truly love God with everything we are, and may God's love flow from our lives to everyone we encounter.

    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.
    Scripture: Psalm 51

    Repent And Return To Christ
    When famine hit the south country where Abram and his family resided, he chose to go down into Egypt rather than trust God for provision. He also compromised his marriage by telling the Egyptian Pharaoh that Sarai was his sister. Abram needed to come to a place of repentance and turn from his sin and turn to God. May we repent of our disobedience and return to Jesus as our true satisfaction.
