So God sent a Savior (script)...

Steven Furtick wrote a piece for their Easter Service at Elevation church that I just love.  Especially after reading through so many of the messy stories of the patriarchs and matriarchs of our faith.  He plays off the "So God made a Farmer" commercial that went viral during the Super Bowl.  I love the way he captures our need for a Savior and the way God used prophets, priests and kings to lead us to Jesus, as unfinished and unsavory as their role ended up being.  In the end, they were only a picture of the real thing, a shadow of the reality itself.  We didn't need Joseph, Moses, Abraham, Jonah, David or Peter...we needed Jesus.  Others could be leaders in the story, but only one (Jesus) could be the savior of the story.

I couldn't find the script to this video anywhere online, so I listened to the dictation of the sermon itself and did my best to render it into words for others to hear and maybe share in written form.
