New Series - I AM
Fill in the blank: I AM _________. The words we use to fill in that blank vary, but they reflect how we see ourselves and show up in life every day. In the Bible, at first God left out the blank; He called himself “I AM.” But in the Gospel of John, Jesus starts filling in the blank. Through Lent, we want to not only know about Jesus, but fully experience him through the ways he fills in the blank about himself. We’ll find out what’s so amazing about this more-than-a-man who dies on a cross—How can who He is deeply change who I am?
Pastor Tom • February 23 • 9:15 and 11 a.m.
Scripture: John 3 & 4 (selected portions)
Message: “I, The One Speaking Am He”
C.S. Lewis said, "If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." With all humanity, we are in a raging pursuit to find something that brings us significance and comforts our longing, empty souls. In John 3 & 4, we meet two people who tried to fill this void, in two different ways—one tried morality, the other pleasure at all costs. Both found their lives empty until they met Jesus. Join us as we enter Jesus’ conversations with two people longing for more.
Series Artwork: "I AM"
Jesus gives us many metaphors so we can see who he is, both as fully man and fully God. How do we, as forgiven believers, understand these I AMs? How do each of these I AMs relate to your life? Let's take some time to sit at Jesus' feet and simply see who he was, and who he still is.
