    "Do I look past my bad circumstances and see the good things God may accomplish, or am I defined by the opinions of others?"

    "Do I have the same mindset as Jesus, not letting opposition deter me from fulfilling my calling?"

    "Does tragedy and rejection keep me from sharing the Gospel? Have I been "shamed" into hiding my light?"

    In today’s podcast, the pastors will explore what happens when Jesus proclaims to Nazareth that He is the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy, and thus the Messiah. Will they submit to Jesus as the Messiah, or will they reject Him? This creates a dilemma of faith over Jesus’s identity. Ultimately, Nazareth’s rejection of the Messiah results in Him leaving their town.

    As we uncover this theme of accepting Jesus’ identity, we'll be asking ourselves important questions such as, "How do I respond when I am confronted by Jesus' authoritative words? Do I submit in faith and become his subject or do I fight Him and the One who sent Him?" We'll also examine the principle that a prophet has no honor in his own town, and consider whether we show honor and respect to those who minister to us in our local church. Join us as we delve into these important themes and seek to apply them to our everyday lives.
