from . . . Keith Reeser ~ Join me for a Treasure Hunt!
Have you ever been asked to go on or have been on a treasure hunt? There is so much excitement surrounding the hunt: Finding a clue, exploring places you’ve never seen, and meeting people along the journey. When you find the treasure, what an indescribable sense of accomplishment and joy! Interestingly, most of us build up enough adrenaline that we want to repeat the adventure again. Within each of us lies a deep longing to go on an adventure and find a treasure of great worth.
God made us to explore, to be learners, and to achieve great things along the way. Can you picture what it might be like to bring this type of exploration to your study of God’s Word? What if your time in our Sunday morning gathering was an exploration of your soul, while collecting clues to support your understanding of and relationship with Jesus. All of these reflections build toward a new series, “Searching for the Messiah.” This series will review the Old Testament prophecies and how Jesus fulfilled them as revealed in the New Testament. The planned expedition will lead us into the Advent Season and help us as we explore and investigate together. I encourage you to pray with the church body as well as pray for me that as we search various Bible passages, we will come away with a deeper understanding of the Scriptures and find our treasure in Jesus.
