The first “P” of the Gospel (2 of 3): the Presence of Christ (Getting Real and Sharing Hope)

Last week, we started looking at Christ in day one of creation and the many Scripture passages that show His presence in that supernatural Light.  If you missed last week’s videos, “The first “P” of the Gospel: the Presence of Christ (an Introduction and the Hermeneutic“, you can view them now or later.  I won’t repeat the details of that information in this week’s videos.

In the first shorter video below, I’m privileged to be joined by my wife, who is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.  I love her face shows such a full range of emotion and deep thinking as she and I discuss some of the practical need and blessings of Jesus’ gracious presence in our daily lives.  The second longer video outlines more applications of real hope for God’s people and is based on the many Scriptures referenced in last week’s video.  I hope you find both of them helpful and encouraging in the Lord Jesus.



If you found this week’s videos helpful, you may also interested in two  videos on Understanding and Applying the Bible and B.E. S.C.R.I.P.T.T.T.U.R.A.L.. located on the tab, “Theology Thursdays”.  The first describes a simple three-step inductive approach to books of the Bible.  The second uses an acronym to guide you in considering twelve points for a deeper study of Scripture.

We will use these models to study whole books of the Bible.  In order to keep the series shorter, we will only be studying books with six chapters or less.  The series on Philippians is complete.  God willing, I will post the series on Lamentations in a few weeks.
