Perceiving the Paradigm

How can we have peace when we seem so determined to destroy ourselves. What hope do we have when we have turned our backs on God? We need someone to rescue us in spite of ourselves and this brief outline points to the one who can rescue us.

Make Use of Your God Given Talents

God has given every one of us abilities which he desires us to use as he provides us with opportunities. This is how his kingdom grows. The temptation however is to play it safe and turn risky discipleship into cold religion.

It Happens So Quick, You’ve Got to Be Ready

We feel that tug that whispers, turn to Jesus, and we say, yes, but not yet. We wait. We wait because we just aren’t sure. Maybe not sure about Jesus, maybe not sure about what we would need to give up. At some level we think it will all turn out right, after all I’m young and have lots of time. But maybe, time is running out.

Give It Away, Not Hold On To It

The temptation is always to solidify. To protect. To establish. But it’s not ours, it never was. We must let go of what we have to be the people of God and to allow that letting go redefine us.

How Far Should We Go With This?

Jesus has called us to be generous with each other, positively confronting each other’s sins so no one gets lost. It was also a call for us to exercise forgiveness with each other and leads to a natural question of how far do we go with this forgiveness? The answer is rooted in the unreasonable grace of God.

No One Gets Left Behind

In our kingdom it’s better to have more than less, but in the Kingdom of God one can have a greater importance than the many. In the Upside Down Kingdom one is the most important.

The Future is Now!

What would it look like for us to live this story of Jesus in our lives? It would be like a prelude to heaven. Life isn’t about fulfilling arbitrary rules, it’s about being empowered for future living today.

Peace, Man!

We put ourselves in the hands of a power we thought would free us but only enslaved us and we don’t have the ability to set ourselves free. To do this we cut ourselves off from the only one who has the power to help — what are we going to do? Look up, he has come to rescue us.

What’s Your Problem?

In the course of this series we have affirmed that we are people created by God in his love for us and we have said that we live in God’s intentionally good creation that he has placed us over as stewards to reflect his image into it, causing it to flourish, and gathering up the praises of all creation and offering them back to God in worship. It begs the question, if God has made things so good why are things so bad? What’s our problem?

Very Good, But Not God

Once we know who we are, we need to know where we are and how we answer that question determines a lot about how we live. The world we live in is neither junk nor divine, but good because it is made by the same God who made us in his image. That means our relationship between the creation and God is full of purpose!
