For the first part of our summer, through the middle of August, we will be taking a look at those stories again. This time, however, instead of looking at them as moral lessons, or examples of overcoming adversity, our focus will be on one thing -- the faithfulness of God acting to save his people.
We'll be taking inspiration from "The Jesus Storybook Bible." The subtitle of TJSB is "Every story whispers his name." You see, while the Bible is God's written word, Jesus Christ is God's Living Word. The purpose of the Bible is to point us to Jesus, and to show us how God has been working throughout all of history to accomplish his saving purpose. The Bible really isn't about us, it is about Jesus.
So join us Sunday mornings, and let's look at what those great stories from the Hebrew Bible can teach us about God's faithfulness and steadfast love for his people.
