On Sunday we began our Lenten Series called “Signs: Indications of a Greater Reality.” We are looking at the 7 “signs” or miracles in the Gospel of John. I said on Sunday this is a series that is less “practical” and more “theological” in nature. It is a series where we are focusing in on the person and work of Jesus Christ and why it is so important. I’ve got to give you a warning as we begin this series: Both the sermons and the group link material are going to be really dense. The reason it is so dense is primarily because this series is more theological in nature. Why are we doing such a “theological” series for 6 weeks? So that we can glorify God with our minds and think rightly about Christ. A quote that may or may not make it into this series is spot on by A.W. Tozer. He says, “What comes to mind when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” This is because what we believe about God ultimately influences how we live our lives. Because this series is so dense, I would encourage those of you going through this series with us to read the texts ahead of time and think deeply about what the signs Jesus performs are pointing towards.
