Biblical Life Lessons

Big Idea of the Series: Paul tells us that “Every Scripture passage is inspired by God. All of them are useful for teaching, pointing out errors, correcting people, and training them for a life that has God’s approval.” 2 Timothy 3:16 (GW)Too often when people read the Bible, they only see it as a set of facts.  This series will show each narrative’s application to our lives.  We will answer the questions: What does this teach me about Jesus?

Scattered throughout the Old Testament are strange things that God did.  People don’t usually talk about these because they don’t agree with their view of God.  These are not one-time weird things of God.  These were written to tell us who God is and what He does.  They are strange in order to get our attention.

The Offense of Christ

Big Idea: Most people think of Jesus on the cross as an offense.  But Jesus also said things that offended people.  He spoke the truth, pointed out people’s sin, and confronted hypocrisy.  Nobody likes that! But to not do those things is an act of hate rather than love.  Prepare to be offended!

The Spirit of the Lord is Upon Me…

Big Idea of the Series: New Life was started so that those who are unlovable would feel the love of Jesus.  The verse used in the early days to describe New Life’s mission was Luke 4:16-19 (ESV) 16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And as was his custom, he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and he stood up to read. 17 And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written,

            18          “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,

because he has anointed me

to proclaim good news to the poor.

                        He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives

and recovering of sight to the blind,

to set at liberty those who are oppressed,

            19          to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

This series will look at each of the different four groups of people that Jesus came to save.  We will see how as we live out this calling, we are sowing seeds of God’s love into people’s hearts.
