I continue to be blessed by the responses I’m getting to the Jesus Lens audio that we released a few weeks ago on the Lifestream Currents Podcast. Some people love it and it has helped them read the Scriptures with joy and clarity they have not known before. Others are struggling through it, knowing that it doesn’t match the way many of us were taught to read the Scriptures. All in all I am excited that people are reconsidering the power and place of the Scriptures in their own lives and are re-connecting with this powerful resource that will help us know Jesus and his Father better.
I know many people have been loaded up with religious ways of reading Scriptures that brings guilt and condemnation. But that’s what we have added to it to distort its power and simplicity. When you understand the story of how God made himself known in the world, you’ll never again see it through the religious spin that obligates you with fear and guilt to follow principles. Instead you’ll let it equip you to listen to Jesus and follow him with joy.
Today we get to announce the opening of our newest web page, TheJesusLens.com. Here the videos have been posted on-line for free viewing by those who prefer the video to the audio. Also you can download study guides, Powerpoint slides, and further resources to help you engage Scripture as an active part of your own spiritual life. You can also order the DVDs through Lifestream from that site as well.
I hope it helps you recapture the wonder of God’s revelation of himself over human history until it culminates in the Jesus himself!
