Jesus and Israel's Exile (All About Jesus #17)

God's chosen people got to live in His presence, build Him a house, and walk in His provision. But instead of living His way, they repeatedly turned aside, over and over and over, for almost a thousand years--so He eventually gave them over to complete separation from Him. He left the temple; they left His land; and everything became as shattered on the outside as it already had been on the inside. This is the exile.

When Fire Came Down on the Temple (All About Jesus #16)

Once upon a time, God's people built Him a magnificent temple. Then they asked Him to be present in it, hearing the prayers and looking upon the sacrifices that they'd make in that place.

Jesus in Haggai (All About Jesus #13)

Jesus is the new temple. If we don't know Him - if we don't come into God's presence in and through Him - then everything else we do is a waste of time. So we pray. We pray urgently like we need Him. We pray like the people all around us need Him. And we pray with the expectancy that He really does heal and transform.

Indifference to racial reconciliation is indifference to the gospel of Jesus Christ (All About Jesus #12)

The gospel we preach, believe, and stake our lives on must imply racial reconciliation—if it didn't, it would be no gospel at all. God's grand plan to fix the world wouldn't really fix the world if it doesn't address justice and race. Thus, our gospel is not God's gospel if our gospel is indifferent to these things.
