Luke 24:27

Apr 1, 2024    Pastor Mike Fanning

“All the promises of God find their YES in Christ!" (2 Cor. 1:20). The Old Testament provides a complete foundation and anticipation for the arrival & mission of Jesus Christ! Jesus is the culminating chapter in God’s sovereign plan to which all the prior chapters point. This includes the prophecies describing intricate details of Jesus’ birth, life, death & future rule. This includes historic events like the enslavement and deliverance of the nation of Israel in Egypt that picture our spiritual deliverance from slavery to sin found in Christ. This includes the various aspects of the sacrificial system like the sacrifice of atonement and the shedding of blood to pay for sin and the role of priest as the mediator between sinful man and holy God, all of which are perfectly and finally fulfilled in Christ. May all of this further compel us to live our current lives fully consecrated under the Lordship of Jesus Christ!

PASSAGE: Luke 24:27 - "And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself."

PAUSE: The Easter Eggs of the Old Testament have enlightened our minds, but have they changed our hearts? Hopefully, these Easter Eggs have challenged you to fall more in love with Jesus. Jesus’s words on the road to Emmaus should cause us all to leap forward with a stronger faith in God!  

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I thank you for always having a plan. Please help me as I look backward and always leap forward in my faith and devotion.
