There are a lot of obstacles that can come between us and the dreams God has for us. But one of biggest challenges to overcome involves our character. What kind of people are we really going to be?

We’re beginning a new series over the life of Joseph in Genesis. God had great plans for Joseph, but there were a lot of obstacles in his way. He was born into a tense family dynamic, hated by his brothers, and sold into slavery. But none of that compared to Joseph’s biggest problem. If you feel like you’re dreams aren’t exactly coming true, check this out!
There are a lot of situations we’d rather not be a part of. We all know people who have problems we’d rather just avoid. They make us uncomfortable and a little anxious. And we just don’t want to get our hands dirty. But today in John 9 Jesus and a man born blind will show us that you have to get your hands a little dirty if you’re going to see God do some great things.
How would you finish the statement “I will be happy when…”? There are probably a lot of answers, but really the question reflects a deeper desire to understand what any of us are here for. We’re all looking for our meaning. Join us as we read about the feeding of the 5000 and learn what it is we’re really hungry for.
One of the most human traits we experience is being vulnerable. All of us have something we want to hide from the world and at the same time we want to be able to share it with people we can trust. But that’s hard to do because we don’t want to be exposed. Looking at John 4 we’re going to look at a time Jesus was vulnerable and learn how the things we fear sharing the most are often the things that free us.
We identify being human with weakness. It reminds us of our pain, our failures, what we are unable to do. But through the gospels we’re told time & time again that Jesus really became human, and yet He never sinned. And through Him we get to learn a new way to be “human.” Join us as begin a journey through John’s gospel as we learn about the image of God according to the Son of Man.
Going through John we’re discovering exactly how “human” Jesus was while He lived on earth. He experienced everything like us – including anger. And what’s more surprising is He was angry without sinning. Today, looking through John 2, we’re going to discover a new way to be angry.
When we think about Jesus as God we don’t generally think of Him being surprised by much. After all, doesn’t God know everything? But what might surprise us is that Jesus became human He actually experience surprise on a number of occasions, one of which happens when a Pharisee visited Him one night in Jerusalem. Join us in John 3 as we look at the one thing that surprised Jesus more than anything else.
