Series Synopsis: The term epiphany (in Greek, epiphainein), also called theophany means “revelation of the Divinity to the people”. God is revealed in Jesus Christ to ordinary people through a series of encounters/events that dramatically change people’s lives:
The calling of disciples
The deliverance of a person from an evil spirit
The healing of sick person
The full revelation of God in Jesus through his transfiguration
Jesus heals a man by driving the evil spirit out of him.
The advancement of God’s kingdom signals the healing and delivering of people, nations, and the world from the evil spirits. The followers of Jesus Christ are called to heal the world by driving out the evil powers that choke people’s lives.
Following Jesus requires a de-cluttering of unnecessary and harmful stuff in our lives that clog our emotional and spiritual arteries. The practice of stillness in God helps us to de-clutter our life to follow Jesus better.
Following Jesus requires a constant “coming” near to him, as we go away from other things, and to be led by the Spirit to “see” what Jesus is doing in our midst so that we can participate in Jesus’ ministry.
Out of the (chaotic) water, God creates the universe. Out of the (deep) water, Jesus begins his ministry. God is always turning our chaos into creation. We need to remind ourselves that in every dark cloud, there is always a silver lining in Jesus Christ.
Joseph and Mary faced one hardship after another as they ushered in God’s son into the world. God came to them through dreams. They got up and went where the dreams told them to go. As we begin 2021, we need to be led by the dream of what things could be, a vision from God that grounds us in hope and faithfulness of God.
Capital Project Donations provide Knox the foundation to build and to be a committed member of our neighbourhoods. Decades of fund raising allowed the purchase and maintenance of our building. They supported the never ending ‘projects’ which come with property ownership; repave the parking lot, fix the roof, etc., leading to today and greater potential. This ongoing help is needed and appreciated for today & the years ahead.
