Here we go with the first update for 2020! There have been a plethora of memes and puns centering around seeing with 20/20 vision in the new year. Clear sight is always our prayer as we journey with the Lord. Our heart's desire is that we would see him clearly and that we would live surrendered as we seek to follow him! To help us to this end our sermon series that begins on Sunday is going to be following a track through the Gospel of Luke in which we are going to be stopping in at the various miracles that Jesus performed. Over the course of the book we will see him heal the sick, cast out demons, overrule nature, and eventually be raised himself from the dead. What is interesting is that while Luke is a book that deals so heavily in the “supernatural”, Luke also claims from the beginning that he is writing that we might have certainty (Luke 1:1-4) regarding who Jesus is and what he came to do. This cross-pressure that exists between certainty and miracle will be a great occasion for us to wrestle with our own questions regarding faith and doubt, while ultimately pushing to a certain confidence in the Savior who lived and died for us.
None of us know what this year will hold, but we move forward with certainty and our sight on the Lord, knowing that our great King and High Priest never ceases interceding for us!
