Sharing my notes.

 

I plan on sharing my notes with you here once a week.  I think it is so important for us to get in the Word; to find the promise that keeps us moving forward, to find the truths that root our feet, and to remember that we serve (and are served by) a Father who is for us.  

Within the body of SOMA,  we look at Bible passages with four key questions-

Who Is God?

What Has He Done?

Who Am I?

What Is My Response?

I have found this to be such a fruitful way for me to journal and seek out the truths that are held for me within the Word.  Therefore, this is how I intend to share my notes with you here.

Right now I am spending a concentrated amount of time in Hebrews in preparation of a new series I have entitled, Family Redeemer.  I thought it might be nice to have you join me in my study.

Hebrews 1:1-4

 

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. 3 He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

Who Is God?

Jesus;greater than the angels, glory, eternal, ruler of the universe

What Has He Done?

created the universe, sustains everything through His mighty power, cleansed us from our sin, provided us with rescue through His Son Jesus, spoke to and through prophets

Who Am I?

Cleansed, planned for, ransomed

What Is My Response?

Worship

We simply get to sit at the foot of the throne of God and look up to see Him looking back at us, through the eyes of ultimate acceptance and desire.  But also through the sending of His Son Jesus we have been given complete view of Him; His character and His heart, as Jesus is God. Jesus is the light of God come to earth and then returned to heaven. His coming was our cleansing, our rescue and through that we can freely worship Him for He is good. His knowledge of what was and is to come is our comfort, He knows and sees all.
