Jesus declares several times in John Chapter 6 that He is the Bread Of Life. What did he mean by this? What does it mean for us? How are we called to respond to this declaration of Jesus about Himself? These are some of the questions we wrestle with in this message.
John 6, Exodus 3,6
How does God work with us and through us (and around us) when we get off track or mess things up? This teaching looks at three distinct passages of Scripture where the Lord deals with his people who have missed it. This teaching also prepares the way for the congregation of Wellspring to be prepared to receive a vision restored.
In this message we take another look at Ezekiel 37 and the story of the valley of dry bones. Jesus declares that he brings abundant life, but we often feel dry and empty. The story of dry bones coming to life spoke to a situation Ezekiel's day, and it still speaks today. Let's listen. Let's learn. Let's prophecy.
The Psalms can be described as "honest songs of praise." How do we sing when our hearts are broken? When all seems lost? When it appears the Lord has left us bereft? Learning how to respond and navigate this kind of soul-crushing season is a key to living in true covenantal loyalty to the Lord in this broken world.
Remembering the goodness of God opens a flow for more of his goodness. Declaring his greatness makes room for his kingdom to manifest around us. This message uses Psalm 145 to lead us in a corporate time of remembering his goodness and declaring his greatness.
What happens when our faith runs into disappointment? How do we operate in the crucible of that season? How do we break through? Such times are inevitable to the walk of faith. Psalm 73 is a testimony of one believer's experience journey into and through such a season.
Psalm 139, Genesis 3
As we read David's Psalm 139 we see that David was someone that knew that God knew everything about him. He also acknowledges that there was no place that he was able to hide from God. This message looks at why and how we can often try to hide from God. This message talks through the desire God has for us to live life in deeper connection with him.
What does it look like to be salt and light in the current toxic and divided political environment in our country? How can we best represent Jesus' Kingdom here in our land and be the illuminating, preserving influence for righteousness that we are called to be? It is not easy, but the Lord gives us one basic prescription to see justice released in the land.
Jesus calls his followers to take up our cross daily. What does that mean? What does it mean to die to self? How is that worked out in the life of the believer? And how does that relate to his call for us to be salt and light?
