Week 1 – The Broken. After Peter’s denial of Jesus he was a broken man. Many of us have experienced brokenness. In this sermon we discover how Jesus reveals himself to the broken and brings restoration.
Week 2 – The Doubter. Everyone has doubts. Thomas was no different. In this sermon we look at the reality of the resurrection biblically, historically, and personally. And then we look at Jesus gentle response to our questions. Jesus always comes and reveals himself to us because he wants us to believe.
Week 3 – The Seeker. Jesus is always leading the conversation towards himself, whether or not we recognize his voice at the time. He promises that the seeker will find. Cleopas and his friend were seekers. Jesus found them.
Week 4 – The Faithful. The Faithful is made up of folks like you and me, folks who were broken, doubting, seeking, confused, hurt, lost, bound, sinful. Jesus last words make sure the faithful understood the mission, His mission – now their mission.
Not only their mission, our mission. The mission of the faithful.
Week 5 – The Hopeful. The disciples were a hopeful bunch. But after Christ’s resurrection, they were hopeful that Israel would now be a great nation again. Jesus changed their perspective. Pentecost is about Jesus calling us to focus less on the rebuilding of earthly kingdoms and empowering us to focus more on bringing people into the Kingdom of Heaven.
