The Old Testament talked about the Jewish people as the vine and God as the Vinedresser.  They saw their connection to God in their identity, land, and function.  Jesus shook the culture by calling himself the True Vine and only path to the Father God. 

We can't rely on our identity, someone else's beliefs, or where we come from to get us closer to God. Jesus is still the one True Vine.

Jesus' friend Lazarus got sick and died. What we see in John 11, is that Jesus doesn't see death as we do. Death is not final. 

3 Takeaways
1. Jesus gives permission to grieve. 
2. Jesus gives hope to see our loved ones again.
3. Jesus gives us resurrection life now.

Today we are talking through John 10 where Jesus compares a hired hand to a good shepherd. 

A good shepherd has:
1. Intimacy- know his sheep by name
2. Commitment- when danger comes, he does not abandon the sheep
3. Sacrifice- will lay down his life for his sheep

The desert is a desperate place. Having THE Good Shepherd as a guide helps us discern His voice from all of the noise.

Jesus fed 5,000+ people and they didn't understand that He came to give them a deeper satisfaction than just a full belly for a day. Our own immediate dissatisfaction with our job, our relationships, or our physical bodies become front and center. Jesus is the Bread of Life who satisfies all of our wants if we turn to Him.

We are coming back to the book of James. It's not easy to hear the truth of the Gospel sometimes. Today, we are talking about money. James doesn't mince words when he is talking to those whose heart is all about their money.

Football players know that they have a contract where there are negotiated terms, a record of performance, and punishment for failure. God does not desire to establish a contract with you, but a covenant. Covenants are based on a personal relationship not a business transaction.

The last two weeks we talked about finding stability in God's Word and  Prayer.

Today, we talking about the third and final piece, Redwood Faith. Redwood trees have shallow roots that intertwine with other redwoods to withstand fires, droughts, and storms. Here's the truth: in order for us to grow, thrive, and survive
