In Psalm 23, God is described as the good shepherd who walks with us, provides for us, and protects us, in both good times and in hard times. In this talk, Liam looks at the fruit of goodness and faithfulness displayed in Jesus’ life, and how this can bring us peace whatever we are facing.
In this series will look at the characteristics we need to cultivate, as individuals and as a church, if we are to live as a people of faith, following Jesus passionately, and longing for revival.
Fire represents passion, purity, and the power of the Spirit, and the word ‘consuming’ means ‘to completely fill one’s attention or focus.’ So ‘Consuming Fire’ symbolises the idea of having our minds, our attention, and our focus entirely consumed by passion for God, and the power of the Spirit.
We live in a context in which Christianity is no longer the dominant religion. This can pose all sorts of challenges and pressures as we seek to follow Jesus. In this series, we consider what the Bible teaches about living as a faithful presence: a community of people who follow Jesus wholeheartedly, and seek to represent him well to a world that has largely forgotten him.
