The Son Who Reveals The Father's Glory

Every human is born with a sense of inner angst, an unresolved internal desire to be seen, valued, and praised. This search is a search for glory, and any attempt to find it outside of the true God of glory will prove to be futile. But this God of glory has taken on flesh, and come to us, to reveal it to us, and show us how we might live with true glory.

Life in Christ

Jesus is the true vine, and his followers are branches that are in him. Those who abide in Christ will be pruned, fruitful, obedient and prayerful.

Believing the Resurrection of the Son of God

The resurrection of Jesus from the dead is a crucial piece of the story of redemption because it shows us that Jesus not only died for our sins but truly conquered over the enemy of death. His resurrection vindicates Him and becomes the hope for all who put their faith in Him, as He is the firstborn from the dead.

Our temptations and Jesus' trials

Jesus is willingly heading to the cross. The betrayals and false accusations are so clearly unjust that they help us to understand the deeper significance of what is really happening - Jesus is willingly laying down his life for sinful man.

Life in the vine

The Old Testament frequently uses the vineyard or vine as a symbol for Israel, God's covenant people, especially in two 'vineyard songs' in Isaiah 5:1_7 and 27:2_6. Israel's failure to bear fruit resulted in God's divine judgment. Jesus, in contrast, is the true vine and true Israel of God who would birth God's people.

Jesus the Way, the Truth, the Life

Sin has separated us from God, leading us to be cut off from Him and unable to be reconciled to Him by ourselves. But Jesus has come to 'bring us to God' (1 Peter 3:17) which He does by preparing the way by living the perfect life, dying our death, and rising again.

Water, Wine & Cleansing the Temple

Jesus reveals that He is the divine Son of God. We must respond to Him by believing in Him, in such a way that we trust Him, and follow Him. He comes to cleanse us from sin, and to open the way for the true worship of God the Father
