The Saviour you Expect? Other than the Roman occupiers, everyone in the Passion story we heard today believed God would provide Israel with a Messiah – a Saviour. It’s just that Jesus wasn’t exactly the Saviour they expected. How about you?
In the Gospel, Jesus says that unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat. He uses that as an explanation for his own crucifixion that he knows is inevitable. In this message we will look at our need to die to ourselves and need to sacrifice in order to gain the life God wants to give us.
As a consequence of sin, each of us has been born broken with a need for healing. It is inevitable that in our lifetime, we will suffer hurts in our hearts and souls, some of which are from others and some that are self-inflicted. This week, we will look at the reality of our need for healing.
In the Ten Commandments, God gives us clear instructions on how to live in relationship with him and live in relationship with others. In the third commandment, he instructs us to rest. In this week of the series, we will look at both our need for work and our need for rest.
