God gave us three kinds of glimpses of Jesus in the Old Testament that illustrate His ministry to us. PROPHETS: A prophet speaks for God. HIGH PRIESTS: A high priest provides access to God. KINGS: A king provides protection. The stories of Moses, Melchizedek and Uzziah demonstrate these three roles. Christ is prophet, priest and King to every believer. We have great privilege...

God's covenants are irrevocable promises that He will love, rescue and protect His people. The rainbow, the atoning sacrifices, the Ark of the Covenant, the Law, and the cross are symbols of His promise. In our darkest times, it is His steadfast love that sustains us.

Scripture: Exodus 19:5-6, Numbers 25:12, Luke 22:20
The book of Hosea teaches many lessons for the family. Hosea's bride (symbol for Israel) forgot that God defines what marriage looks like, we do not. The children forgot that their father (symbol for God) provides everything, won't be Savior without being in charge, and his fairness can't be taken for granted.

Topic: Divorce & Remarriage
Duffle bag religion is a collection of good works that prevents the pursuit of an authentic relationship with God. Paul warns us that we pride ourselves on wearing our pedigrees and miss the cloak of compassion. We fancy our reputations over our integrity and smugness over vulnerability. It is all about seeking God Himself, not just the blessings.

Topic: Preaching & Teaching
Have you ever considered the significance of the appearing of Moses and Elijah on the Mount of Transfiguration and what it might mean for your life? It may be obvious to some that Moses represented the giving of the Law (Torah) and Elijah represented the giving of prophets to proclaim God’s word. But actually, the meaning of their appearances goes quite a bit deeper than that....
