Class Description

The Jesus we’re aching for partners the compassion of Jesus with the passion of Christ. We see how the heart of God is moved by the heart of humanity and His response to our loud cry for help. We discover the world-changing result of being recipients of His compassion and the reason for His passion, all the way to the cross. Ultimately, Mark intends for the action-packed presentation of who Jesus is to lead us to acknowledge Jesus, find salvation in Him, and follow Him.

Class Description

No matter where we are in the Christian life—whether up or down, soaring or struggling—there is a psalm that speaks directly to the spiritual state of our hearts. The Book of Psalms is the longest and most profoundly beautiful collection of prayers, songs, poems, and monologues in the Bible. Its primary purpose is found in its intensely God-centered focus to direct our hearts toward Him in every experience of life.

This study explores six key psalms. Psalm 1, a wisdom psalm, teaches us to embrace godly wisdom because obeying God’s Word is the path of true life. The familiar Psalm 23, a song of thanksgiving, proclaims that God is always good and trustworthy. Psalm 42, a lament, ultimately lifts us up with the announcement that God’s abiding hope is present even during the most discouraging times. Psalm 51 is penitential, meaning that our sin problem is defined and answered only through realization, confession, and repentance. Security in God’s presence is the topic of the session on Psalm 84, which proclaims God’s royalty. And session six portrays the sovereignty of God the Creator, proclaimed in Psalm 95.
