Like Us In Every Way

Sin brings so many severe and awful consequences into our lives. In order to free us from them all, Jesus became just like us, suffering the smart of every one of those consequences. Through this series we’ll gain a renewed appreciation for what it is we’ve been rescued from and all that Jesus went through to make this rescue possible.

March 5 Our Temptation Matthew 4:1-11, Hebrews 4:15-16
Jesus faced real temptations, just as we do. Yet, as the perfect Son of God, he was always able to overcome. Having been there, Jesus not only understands what we’re going through, he also shows where we find the strength to win the battle.
March 12 Our Guilt John 4:5-26
 Guilt might be the heaviest burden you have to carry. Jesus understands. He became like us in every way. He carried a heavy burden of guilt too. Your guilt and mine.
March 19 Our Weakness John 9:1-7; 13-17,34-39
 Because of sin we carry around what Paul calls “a body of death.” Our bodies are cursed with struggles like pain, disease, and addiction. Jesus endured the pain of flogging, beating, and the cross, so that we could be rescued from pain and sickness forever.
March 26 Our Suffering Matthew 20:17-28
 A mother wants the best for her sons. What parent doesn’t? But greatness in Jesus’ kingdom comes only by becoming a servant of all. Is that what we really want for our children? Is that what we want for ourselves?
April 2 Our Sorrow John 11:17-27, 38-45
April 9 Our Disgrace (Palm Sunday) Philippians 2:5-11

Midweek Sermon Series – Hidden Glory

Our message series for our Wednesday Lenten services is Hidden Glory. Jesus’ glory is often a hidden glory – hidden in his lowly life, hidden in his severe suffering, hidden in his dark death. We will be led to marvel at how Jesus revealed his glory as he carried our sin to the cross for our full and forever salvation. The portions of Scripture on which each message will be based are listed below. Perhaps you may want to incorporate these into your daily Bible reading during Lent.

“I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge— God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:4-9

March 1 Hidden in the Savior’s Solitude Luke 18:31-34
Today we begin a spiritual journey that will span forty days, from Ash Wednesday until Good Friday, before Resurrection Sunday. In the early days of the Church, the season of Lent was a time of preparation for new converts as they readied their hearts to enter into Christian baptism on Easter Sunday. Since these new members were to be received into a living community of faith, the entire community was called to preparation. Also, this was the time when those who had been separated from the Church because of explicit sin would prepare to rejoin the community of faith.

March 15 Hidden in the Savior’s Rejection by His Own Matthew 26:57-68
March 22 Hidden In the Savior’s Rejection by the World John 18:33-19:1
March 29 Hidden in the Savior’s Stumbling Mark 15:17-21
April 5 Hidden in the Savior’s Powerful Words Luke 23:32-43
Maundy Thursday Hidden in the Savior’s Supper Matthew 26:26-30
