What is stirring my heart...

I was listening to a sermon from Antioch in Waco the other morning on my run, and I was struck 
by what the pastor (Jimmy Seibert) began saying about who Jesus is all throughout the Bible.
I have listened to it over and over ("Discipled by Jesus" from 8/25/12 starting at minute 17:21), and I am encouraged more each time I hear these truths.
