The Book of Esther
The book of Esther is a post-exile story about a remnant of Jews who stayed behind in Persia after most had returned to Jerusalem from captivity. Often times throughout the Old Testament we see God in action. We see Him in Creation, in the parting of the Red Sea, in the sun standing still and in the walls of Jericho coming down. But here in the book of Esther we don’t get thunder and lightening. The truth is that God isn’t even mentioned in any of the pages. What we do find is a God who is always at work and often times it is behind the scenes without us even realizing it. This book is a demonstration of God’s love and sovereignty. It shows us a God who protects and providentially cares for His people. Come join us as we try and find God in these pages and uncover these truths about Him and become witnesses to how His plans and purposes are always moving forward.
The Book of Romans
This letter by the Apostle Paul to the church in Rome is a clear and systematic summary of Christian doctrine. Man comes with only his ungodliness and unrighteousness but God in His grace offers us justification through faith alone in Christ alone. This letter shows us that it is only in Christ that we we are justified. It is only in Christ that we can stand before a holy God. It is only in Christ that we receive redemption by His atoning blood. So come join us on this journey as Paul, the masterful artist, shows us our true need for Christ.
