THESE THINGS I LEAVE YOU …
You’re not going to want to miss a single week of this next series. If you are on vacation make sure you log in live (HERE) or catch up during the week because this new series is great for Christians who need to take a more in-depth look or those who have yet to make a confession to our Lord of belief!
Invite your friends, nag your family, and make sure you are tuned in because This Is Your Time to dive deeper, understand more, and take a quantum leap in your life spiritually.
Think about the bold statements that Christ made during His ministry! The Kingdom of Heaven is here! In the course of all human events has a more critical news scoop ever existed? The physical reality that we all know has been interrupted by the collision of the spiritual realm. Jesus himself broke the news when He announced, “The Kingdom of Heaven has arrived”. Three years later, he was gone and vanished into a cloud. His followers thought, “What now?”
Jesus left us with a mission and the tools to accomplish the task. If the Church is the vehicle, then what elements give it power? “These Things I Leave You . . .” is a series all about the aspects of the church that Jesus himself instituted. We can’t overlook the perfect plans He laid either himself or through His closest Apostles. We will look at these foundational elements that Jesus left us with to build His Kingdom here: Worship, Gifts of the Spirit, Scripture, Baptism, Communion, and the Hope of Heaven.
This is not an exhaustive list. Clearly, other things connect us to the power source of Christ like prayer, service, and obedience. Many of those essential elements to our Christian walk will come up in the series. Jesus introduced new things we need and reformed some Jewish customs to prepare us for joy in the task before us.
Don’t Miss A Week!
