We began our journey through Lent on Ash Wednesday with Jesus’s warning (and promise) that unless a seed falls into the ground and dies, it remains by itself, alone; but if it does die, it bears much fruit. Today, Tom Johnson continues the counter-intuitive Kingdom message as we join Jesus in his 40 days of desert wilderness and temptation. Our natural tendency is to want to rush past suffering; but when Jesus, and Paul after Him, surrendered obediently to the struggles they were strengthened in God – to which Tom asks: “So how do we deepen our roots in those dry places?” Teaching Pastor: Tom Johnson, Missional Life Pastor |
