In Matthew’s Gospel account, Jesus’s final words to his first followers were, “I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Luke then records in Acts that Jesus then physically left and ascended to heaven, but this promise of Jesus to be with us always was to be lived out by the Holy Spirit. For many, the lack of a physical with-ness makes it challenging to believe Jesus’ words, especially during life’s regular ups and downs. But just because we don’t feel like God is with us, doesn’t make the promise any less true.
Viva! Presence looks at the idea that God is with us and explores what the presence of God looks and feels like in our everyday lives.
Specifically, we will look at the following:
Week 1: God With Us
Week 2: Pain
Week 3: Challenges
Week 4: Celebration
Includes 4 lessons, instructions, and two slide templates for PowerPoint, Keynote, MediaShout, ProPresenter or another display system.
