Main Passage: Daniel 3


Theological Theme: God – Father, Son and Spirit alone deserves our ultimate allegiance.

Christ Connection: The same God who was faithful and present with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the flames will also deliver us through His Son, Jesus the Christ, who is with us in the fiery trial and who saves us from sin and its consequences.

Missional Application: God the Holy Spirit calls us to embrace a countercultural lifestyle with full confidence in His power, regardless of what the immediate outcome may be.

Main Passage: Daniel 1


Theological Theme: As Christians, we can trust in God – Father, Son and Spirit’s guidance even while we are in exile here on earth.

Christ Connection: Daniel stayed true to his identity, obeyed God, and was a testimony to God’s grace. He points forward to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who willingly embraced a sinful world without ever defiling Himself and through His death and resurrection became the greatest picture of God’s grace the world has ever known.

Missional Application: God, through the Holy Spirit, calls us to be a shining testament to His grace by remaining true to our identity in Christ and living in holiness.

As the Father sent Jesus that he might Worship God and Witness to Him as real man, so Jesus the God/Man sends us the Holy Spirit that believers might participate in the Life and Love of Jesus, worshiping God – Father, Son and Spirit and witnessing about Him to people in all the world – in word and deed!

Main Passage: Ezekiel 37:1-14

“This vision may be looked upon as descriptive of a state of lukewarmness and spiritual lethargy of the Church [and world!] when the question may be sorrowfully asked— ‘Can these bones live?’” –Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)

Theological Theme

The only hope for those who are spiritually dead is God-Father-Son-and-Spirit’s resurrection power!

Christ Connection:

God-Father-Son-and-Spirit showed Ezekiel a valley of dry bones, which reminds us what we are like in our sinful condition. God gave Ezekiel a vision of the power of God bringing life out of death, a power on display most fully in the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead.

Missional Application:

God the Father, through Jesus and the Holy Spirit, will raise and restore His people, a vast army who will know God and make Him known.

The Great Fall Of Jerusalem!

Main Passages: 2 Chronicles 36:11-21 Jeremiah 38:14-1824-28 

“One of the most important events in the Old Testament era was the fall of Jerusalem and the capture of God’s people. Due to the hard-heartedness of the people and their leaders, including the despising of His Word, God displayed His justice and wrath through His punishment of His people. Yet even here, in this display of God’s justice, we see how God preserves a remnant of people who will carry the hope of His promise to make all things new through a Messiah.” – The Gospel Project

Theological Theme:

God [ Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] patiently pursues sinners, but His patience will one day come to an end.

Christ Connection:

God righteously punished His people for their sin, but He remained faithful to them and kept the promise He made to David to preserve a remnant and provide a king. Ultimately, God punished our sin through His Son, Jesus, and made Him our King forever.

Missional Application:

God, through His Holy Spirit, calls us to listen to His Word and proclaim His patience and righteousness to others while there is still time.

God (And Jeremiah) Prophesies A New Covenant

Main Passages: Jeremiah 17:1-10 Jeremiah 31:31-34

The heart of humanity is desperately wicked and in need of replacement. Because no one is able to perfectly obey the law, God promised a new covenant, one not written on stone or parchment but written instead on the hearts of His people. This is a promise concerning the coming day of Jesus, fulfilled in the gospel. In the gospel, God not only writes His law on our hearts but also gives us the gift of the Holy Spirit, who indwells every believer. – The Gospel Project

Theological Theme:

In the new covenant, we are indwelled by the Holy Spirit, who enables us to obey God’s [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] law.

Christ Connection:

The problem in Jeremiah’s day was the people had God’s law but were unable to obey Him due to the sinfulness of their hearts. Jeremiah prophesied about a coming day when God would forgive sin and write His law on the hearts of His people. This prophecy is fulfilled in the gospel. Through Jesus, God offers us forgiveness. Through the Holy Spirit, God enables us to obey His commands.

Missional Application:

God calls us to rely on the Holy Spirit as we obey God’s commands and live on mission for His kingdom.

“A new heart [is] compelled by the Spirit to obedience. It is a voluntary obedience springing from a heart that has been transformed and captivated by the Redeemer.”  –Timothy Lane and Paul David Tripp

“https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2018/02/2017-09-10-god-calls-jeremiah-jeremiah-1-4-10-guest-vinson-tah.mp3”

Main Passage: Jeremiah 1:4-10 

“Jeremiah was called, even before he was born, to be God’s prophet. Because his prophetic message was contrary to what his people wanted to hear, Jeremiah faced opposition and persecution. Nevertheless, Jeremiah remained faithful to God’s call despite the obstacles. In Jeremiah’s grief, we see a picture of the tender heart of God, most fully expressed in Jesus’ weeping for the unrepentant people of Jerusalem. From Jeremiah, we also learn that the God who calls us to deliver His message is the God who will empower us for His mission.” – The Gospel Project

Theological Theme:

God  [ Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] equips those He has chosen to minister in His name.

Christ Connection:

Jeremiah’s love for his people was so great that he often delivered God’s message in tears, to the point that he is known as the “weeping prophet.” In Jeremiah’s grief, we see a picture of the tender heart of God, most fully expressed in Jesus’ weeping for the people of Jerusalem who would not repent.

Missional Application:

God, through  His Holy Spirit, calls us to trust Him to overcome the obstacles we may face in carrying out His mission in our lives.

“The Lord delivers…not so that the prophet will be free of persecutions and difficulties, for we read that Jeremiah was severely afflicted. Instead, the Lord liberates one who suffers everything to overcome these tribulations rather than yielding to them.”  –Jerome (circa 345-420)

Main Passage: Jonah 1-4

“God [Father, Son and Spirit] goes to great lengths to pursue people, even when they have no interest in being found. God pursues sinners of all kinds in order to bring them to Himself. Jonah was a prophet who rejected God’s call and ran away from his enemies. Unlike Jonah, Jesus heard God’s call and ran toward His enemies. While we were still sinners, He died for us, and now He commissions us as His people to pursue others with the good news of His love.” – The Gospel Project

Theological Theme:

Salvation belongs to God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

Christ Connection:

Jonah was a prophet who rejected God’s call and ran away from his enemies. Jesus heard God’s call and ran toward His enemies. While we were still sinners, He died for us.

Missional Application:

God through His Holy Spirit, calls us to put aside our tribal attitudes and break down walls as we share the news that forgiveness is possible through repentance and faith.

“God breaks down walls and leads His people out into the world with good news: forgiveness is possible through repentance and faith. Tribal attitudes melt away when constantly exposed to the warm embrace of our missionary God.” –Trevin Wax

“https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/2017-08-06-god-pursues-israel-hosea1-3-guest-andrews-tah.mp3”

“The life and, in particular, the marriage of God’s prophet Hosea shows us the great lengths that God goes to in order to pursue the people He loves. Despite our unfaithfulness, God loves us still and is willing to take on the personal cost and sacrifice of bringing us into and keeping us in right relationship with Him. Because of His love, God continually goes after unfaithful people like us, and in this pursuit, He provides a model for how we are to pursue others with the good news of His love.” – The Gospel Project

“The ultimate happiness in life is the conviction that one is loved; loved for oneself—better still loved in spite of oneself.” – Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Main Passages: Hosea 1:2-9; 2:14-23; 3:1-5

Theological Theme

The initiative for our salvation is in the loving heart of God- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

“He lifts us up out of ourselves to participate in the very life and communion of the Godhead, that life of communion for which we were created.” – J.B. Torrance, Worship Community and the Triune God of Grace. (Pg. 22)

Christ Connection:

Hosea’s relationship with Gomer reminds us of God’s relationship with the people of Israel, and with us. Even though God’s people are unfaithful and love other things more than God, God still loves us. It was because of His love that God sent Jesus to die on the cross for our sin and bring us back to Him.

“He [Jesus] does not appease an angry God to condition Him into being gracious, but in perfect acknowledgment of the holy love of the Father for a sinful world, seals God’s covenant purposes for all humanity by His blood.” – J.B. Torrance, Worship Community and the Triune God of Grace(Pg. 49)

Missional Application:

God through His Holy Spirit calls us to pursue others with the good news about the God who pursues us at great cost to Himself.

Main Passages:

2 Kings 19:8-20,32-37

“God’s glory is personally beneficial to those who follow Him. Understanding God’s glory reveals the certainty with which we can receive His promises. There is never a dichotomy between displaying God’s greatness and resting in His love. The ancient story of Assyria’s calloused threats against Judah during the reign of King Hezekiah illustrates that God saves us for the glory of His name and for our good. We, in turn, make known His glory so that others will rest in His grace.”– The Gospel Project

Theological Theme:

God the Father saves us for the glory of His name and for our good.

Christ Connection:

Hezekiah prayed for God to manifest His glory by saving His people from the pagan kingdom that was rising against them. God exalted His name by answering Hezekiah’s prayer. Jesus also prayed for the salvation of His people, and through His death and resurrection, He accomplished the ultimate manifestation of God’s glory through defeating the enemy and saving His people.

Missional Application:

God, through His Holy Spirit, calls us to live on mission for His kingdom because we know that God is victorious over His enemies.
