Lent to Easter 2016 (1 of 7) / by David Flowers

Sermon Series:  Living Ink: Learning to Live in God's Story
Sermon Title:  Entering the Story (1 of 7)
Scripture Reading:  Luke 4:1-13; Matthew 16:21-27; 1 Corinthians 10:1-6

Lent is a 40-day season when the church commemorates the time Jesus spent in solitude, in silence, and fasting in the wilderness. Jesus prepared himself in the wilderness for what the Father had for him in his life and ministry. In this season of wandering and preparation, we are invited to make room for God’s Spirit as we allow him to become the source of our strength and the Lord of our lives. In our Living Ink worship series, we will discover through the Scriptures that God is the Author of a grand narrative—a tale that encompasses all our struggles, pain, joys, and victories. This Author calls us to co-authorship, using our very lives to continue the Kingdom mission and vision of Jesus in a world poised for resurrection.

In Entering the Story (1 of 7), pastor David explains how we must come to the end of ourselves if we want to begin learning to live in God’s story and experience the redemptive plan he has for us and the world. Listen to David and view the slides here.
