    May 19: Jesus Judges Churches

                   

    Within one verse in John 2, Jesus turns from wine maker to church destroyer. Raging, flipping over tables, and whipping animals, a furious Jesus turns the church upside down...or order to keep the Church right side up. In an age when greed, sin, secrecy, and scandal have driven people away from church, Jesus is passionate about protecting the places where his resurrection is proclaimed.

    May 12: Jesus Is The God Of The Unexpected

                   

    Jesus’ first ever miracle was making 150 gallons of alcohol! Turning water into wine was not only proof of Jesus’ identity as God, but also a reminder that God’s great goal for our lives is joy, to celebrate in his presence by the miraculous work of his Son, Jesus.

    May 5: Look At Jesus' Identity

                   

    How can an imperfect person fall asleep without guilt? How can the abused live without shame? How can a sinner end up in the presence of God? The Bible’s answer—a lamb. A spotless substitute, accepted by God’s own design. This is what John the Baptist’s followers would have thought when he pointed to Jesus and shouted, “Look! The Lamb of God!”

    April 28: Meet The Real Jesus

                   

    Was Jesus a good man? A wise teacher? A religious guide? A prophet? A god? Jesus’ best friend answers that question in the opening words of his biography. Jesus was the Word, both with God and himself God. Jesus is the way God communicates with us, showing us the darkness of life without him and the bright light of trusting in him.

    April 21: Jesus Is Alive! (Easter Sunday)

                   

    Jesus faced the horror of his friends’ death/grief with a powerful hope with the reminder that he was the resurrection and the life. In a world where we all are dying every day (and trying to ignore it), Jesus’ own resurrection is proof that he is our Savior and our true source of Life!

    Summary

    A philosopher once said, “Know thyself.”  Vitally important words, both for me and for those who know me.  The church (and American culture in general) is known for faking it, for promoting the best moments of us without admitting the biggest struggles within us.  This series is about revealing who we are, which then reveals the stunning depth to which God’s love reaches.  The goal is not only to realize the beauty of the gospel, but to learn to live together in light of the reality of who we really are.
