Behind the scenes of every great stage play are the actors. In this series I move beyond what is normally seen as the core Genesis narrative and take a deep dive into the personality, purpose and unique attributes of each of the main characters in Genesis 1-3.
Trees are referenced throughout the bible – as metaphors for life. In Genesis, God gave us a choice about what we consume. It’s a decision between life and death. What you consume on a daily basis writes your destiny. Abundant life is also about where you are planted and whether you are producing fruit.
Things Adam Wants to Talk About. Psalm 23:1-6 “Rest” is the first part of Restoration. In this notable Psalm, David paints a vivid, peaceful picture of what it can be like to truly rest in God’s love and be restored. Pastor Adam illustrates how rest is important in today’s too busy world. And how The Good Shepherd will satisfy our deepest needs and lead us to peace and restoration.
Episode 3: All The King’s Horses.
2 Samuel 11:1-5.
After becoming king, David stopped “being” king. He was living beneath his calling after having lived a life beyond his enemies definition. Then, temptation crept in. We are all tempted, and Pastor Adam explains 4 keys found in scripture to overcome temptation before it arrives.
Bathsheba’s story begins with shame and victimization, but she was not defined by that. She ends up on a throne as one of the wisest women of all time. It is from her genealogy that Jesus was born. Why did God allow His son to be born from a family line marred with betrayal, murder and adultery? To demonstrate His grace and redemption.
