The Gospel of the Kingdom

Throughout our Crossroads series here at Eastbrook Church we have investigated what it means that Jesus has come to a crossroads moment in His ministry and human history within Jerusalem immediately before His crucifixion. We have explored Jesus as Lord of the Sabbath, the Sent Son, the New Temple, Lord of the Cast Off, and so much more. I’m a visual thinker so I find it helpful to see this explained and I have not encountered such a powerful means for that as exemplified in The Bible Project. I hope you enjoy their thematic video “The Gospel of the Kingdom” as much as I did.

A Visual for Chaff

Since most people I know do not live a rural, agrarian societies, I thought I’d share this video clip about chaff that helped me have a visual picture for my message, this past weekend, “Chaff,” from Psalm 1:4-6:

Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

A Song of Hope – “You Never Let Go”

I talked with a few different people this past week who are in the midst of some challenging situations. In the midst of our focus on hope this week, the following song came back to my mind. It speaks hope into our lives with the simple, yet profound, truth that God walks with us through the ups and downs of our lives. I hope it’s an encouragement to you today.
