PEOPLE of the PRESENCE [Part 1] w/RON OHST

 “My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest…because I am pleased with you and I know you by name.”

 Exodus 33:14-17

-In order to see God’s vision and fulfill God’s mission for us, we must be People of the Presence

 Our vision: For people everywhere to know and worship God in all His glory and goodness.

 Our mission: To build growing communities of worshipers who are becoming like Christ, empowered to do His work.

 

-The Presence is the resource for the mission

 Matthew 28: 18-20 

 

1- People of the Presence

Being marked by God’s dynamic Presence has always been the biblical expectation for God’s people.

a. In the Old Testament

 Exodus 33:12-20

 The primary, foundational answer to all our questions and needs is not a “what” but a “who”,the personal presence of God Himself.

Already in the Exodus God had begun fulfilling His vision of the whole earth filled with the knowledge of God’s glory and goodness.

 

The Presence of God is equated with the Spirit of Yahweh (Isaiah 63:9-14, Psalm 139:7)

To Be Continued in Part 2
