Last week, we continued our teaching series "Revealed." This series examines the places, people, and rituals that foreshadowed the coming of Jesus, the Messiah. Doug Stetson (deacon/teacher) examined the role and purpose of the Ark of the Covenant in the Old Testament. He reminded us that the Ark not only was the place where God's presence rested, it also contained elements that demonstrated God's provision (manna), God's power and authority (Aaron's staff) and God's will and command (tablets of Law).
Doug then pointed us to Jesus - that through him, God's presence dwells with us, God's provision is made available to us, his power and authority reside with us, and his Law is written on our hearts.
We've been connecting this teaching series with our Lent devotional -- keep an eye on this blog to follow our daily Lent readings and prayers.
Music from Sunday was: "Eternal One" (Robbie Seay), "God Be Merciful to Me" (Jars of Clay), "Holy" (Chris O'Brien), and "He Lives in Me" (Chris O'Brien).
