Rediscovering Jesus
Who was Jesus?

There have been no shortage of opinions offered, books written, responses given to this question. Some worshiped Him as God. Others thought Him a criminal. Controversy followed Him throughout His life, and has continued 2,000 years after His death.

A few decades after the events of Jesus’ life on earth, a man named Luke wrote a detailed account for a friend–rediscovering Jesus. He asked questions of eyewitnesses, he listened to Jesus’ enemies, and worked hard to give an account of just who Jesus really was.

Luke was convinced Jesus had good news for us. Life changing news. Rest for the anxious. Healing for the broken. Freedom for the trapped. He wrote about Jesus, so that we could rediscover Jesus too.

05 The Song of Anna

Are you prepared to encounter Jesus, walk with Jesus, speak to Jesus, hear from Jesus today and every day? Because if you are a follower of Jesus empowered by the Spirit, then you are with Jesus every day. But are you aware, attentive, and in tune with him to live out your days in his presence? Some of you may feel rather distant, indifferent, or perhaps even numb to Jesus. Perhaps it is because you have not properly prepared yourself to meet him through habits of emptiness, gratefulness, and sharing his faithfulness. But it is also a question for everyone. Are we prepared to meet Jesus on our last day? What direction are your habits taking you? Is the life you are living today preparing you to face your last day? We are all living our lives, ordering our loves, and spending our time in ways that are preparing us in one way or another. What I pray for all of us is to see that the life prepared to meet Jesus is the life of joy we long for. Are you prepared? The Song of Anna Luke 2:36-38 December 29, 2019 Reid Kapple

From Series: "The First Songs of Christmas - Olathe Campus"

Songs have such power to convey meaning and evoke emotion. Christmas music is no exception. Whether they cause you to feel jolly or jaded, these seasonal songs of celebration do impact us. And we want to experience the wonder and glory of God’s entrance into our world through The First Songs of Christmas. Now we’re not talking about the tunes we hear at the mall. This advent season we will see the story of Christ’s birth through the songs that are sung in the opening chapters of Luke’s gospel. And as we listen we will discover the glorious truth that Jesus is the song our hearts long to sing.
