God's Bow in the Clouds
God promises to never again destroy Creation. This is the first signpost that points toward God's plan to redeem all things in Christ. God is making all things new, and our destiny is to dwell with God when God brings his heavenly city, the New Jerusalem, to us!
Abraham: Father of Our Faith
A look at Abraham, or more specifically our faith. We read that our God chose a people to follow Him by faith and be reconciled to Him by the cross.
1 Corinthians 1:18-25
Israel was given the vocation of being a nation called out to worship God and God alone. But Israel struggled with this and worshiped created things, causing their perception to be warped and obscured. Israel's problem is ours also. Our perceptions are warped, and it's only those of us who are being saved, who God is redeeming and restoring to our original purpose and intended beauty, that can see the cross for what it really is- God's profound, glorious, and divine wisdom for the reconciliation of all things in Christ Jesus.
Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, that the people of Israel could look and be saved from the poison inside of them, so Jesus himself would be lifted up on the cross as God's divine intervention, that those who believe in him may not perish but may have eternal life!
Jesus - The Seed of Life
"Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit." Our journey continues as we begin to approach our destination: Easter! Now, we search the story of God's plan of redemption to answer the question, "why did Jesus die?"
