Psalm 23 defines God as our shepherd – a concept very familiar to the writer of the psalm, but less so to us today. Alex unpacks the psalm to show the wonder of God our shepherd as our teacher, who feeds our soul and guides our hearts.
Continuing our series exploring the names of God, this week we are in Isaiah 9:6 – God who is Wonderful Counselor, Everlasting Father, Prince Of Peace.
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given,
The government will be on his shoulders
And he will be called
Prince of Peace.”
The bible builds a multidimensional picture of a holy God, who carries the name “God-who-makes-you-holy.” Based in the amazing vision in Isaiah 6, we look at what holiness looks like, why we’re drawn towards it, how we get it, and why it’s an unexpected answer to the deep questions of life.
We explore Jehova Shalom – the God who is peace. God is peace, He is the peace-giver and the peace-maker. Phil takes us through a journey of coming to a place of peace with God, discovering the peace of God, and the outworking of peace on earth.
Knowing Jesus, and becoming like Him, doesn’t happen by chance. There are intentional practices we can build into our lives – things that we see modelled by Jesus – to help this transformation become real.
