Continuing our new sermon series, this week we focus on maintaining our zeal in our faith in Jesus. We consider what it means to have a vibrant, living faith.
The book of Ruth
At its heart this book is the account of God working through ordinary people to bring about his plan and purpose. It is a great reminder that God works through ordinary people who have been given his Spirit – that is, us.
To be able to see and understand what is happening in the world is essential for life. Jesus has come into the world to bring spiritual light and sight.
Jesus has a conversation with a woman at a well, through which it becomes clear that the need for spiritual salvation is greater than any physical need. Our identity must be found in Jesus Christ.
Jesus has a conversation with an important religious leader and outlines that to be part of God’s family someone must be made into a spiritually new person. This occurs through true faith in Jesus, and is the only way to eternal life.
