THE BOOK: THE SONG OF SONGS… “Rewrite the Stars!”

The Song of Songs, or the Song of Solomon, is a book in the Bible about love and sexual desire between a husband and a wife.  A shepherd girl became the queen because of the love of the King!  Sex was God's idea, and it was a good idea!  The church must reclaim and proclaim the purpose and meaning of sex from God's Word to do battle with the destructive ideas of this world.  Song of Songs is part of that struggle!

ECCLESIASTES: Hevel!

Ecclesiastes looks at life UNDER THE SUN and finds, even in the ridiculous abundance of its author, life lacking in meaning and purpose.  Time, Death, and Chance eat through earthly, under-the-sun ideas of success and significance in the wink of a thought.  Apparent, undiscoverable meaning is the stuff of HEVEL.  So let's go above the sun and find the God of grace who gives purpose, meaning, and life to everyone who seeks Him!

Are you good at life?  That simple but profound question is the stuff of wisdom; the stuff of the book of Proverbs.  What does it mean to be wise?  And what does it mean to be a fool?  And what aspects of life should I be "good at"?  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom!

John 7:37-39.  The living water of the Spirit of Christ is the Fountain for the fight of the gospel!  The war is won, but there are still battles to fight!  Romans 6 tells us how to think and believe so that what is eternally true becomes the practical reality of our dialy lives!  The tomb is empty!  The Gospel message tells it all!  You don't have to live a life of confusion and defeat!  Come be a part of Jesus' Victory!

God is the greatest teacher!  He uses every sense, every learning style, to help us remember, and to help us to see.  The Jewish Passover points us back to redemption from Egypt and forward to redemption in Christ.  Only God can tell this story in this way, weaving together past, present, and future while engaging all our senses in this unforgetable transformative lesson that changes everything!

If you know the context and history surrounding Jesus' bold public words in John 7:37, it will make you very THIRSTY to know Him!  John 7:37 "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink."  This Easter, as we look at Jesus life and teachings leading up to the cross and resurrection, remember... HE LIVES!  What does all this mean for you and me?

Are you too busy trying to do the right thing, to become the right kind of person?  If you are the right kind of person you will naturally do the right kind of thing.  Look at Mary and Martha in Luke 10.  Then let's look at Psalm 91... at the DWELLER!  The one who DWELLS, ABIDES, SITS DOWN WITH God... rocks!  Or rather, God rocks through that one!  Do you have the time to become the right kind of person?

When Jesus and the writers of scripture spoke of "The Church", what did they mean?  You might be surprised to see how far afield we have gone in our day from the meaning of the term in the days of Christ.  Let's bring it back to its dynamic and powerful truth!  The gates of hell don't stand a chance!

JOB: 3 Heroes… pt 2…

What would it look like if God eliminated all suffering and pain?  Sounds great... maybe...  But lets look to Job where the question really is not 'Why suffering?'.  The question is more like 'Why do some suffer more than others?'.  Then let's look to Jesus.  Then let's look to the grace of God.  Then let's look to our third hero.  Then let's look at our own heart.
