Miracles. John 8 & 9.
Jesus says that if we His true disciples we’ll keep his instructions. We’ll also know the truth and be set free. John 9 Jesus makes mud for a blind man and instincts him to go wash in a pool.
November 17, 2021
Following Jesus encompasses our entire life. How we deal with our physical life is important as well.
November 10, 2021
John 5. The pool
Jesus walks into Jerusalem near the The Sheep gate and into what was a temple of Asclepius. Jesus lovingly confronts someone and heals this person. Jesus still does this for us as well.

Reconciled. Relationship. Represent.
Following Jesus can be described in the reality that we are reconciled with God through Salvation from Jesus. He paid the penalty of our sins. We also get to live in relationship with Jesus. And represent Jesus well to others who aren’t reconciled to God yet.

October 15, 2021
Think about the reality that humanity’s first day on this earth was a Sabbath day, a day of rest. Our identity should be found in our connection with the Father not our work.

Be The Church: Psalm 99
Scripture should shape our lives. It shaped Paul’s life and ministry throughout the Roman Empire. What shapes your worldview?
October 11, 2021
Silence & Solitude
Jesus models for us Spiritual habits that helped Him stay on mission. If we say we’re a Christian or a follower of Jesus we should practice these. When we do we engage in a spiritual battle for our soul. We are becoming more like Jesus when we live by these habits.
