As with so much about God, this remains a mystery. But God’s Word appears to be the active presence of God in the world. So God’s Word is God at work in the world. In the beginning, God’s Word took the form of spirit and voice, which means that the creative presence of God is free and unpredictable, filled with surprises, speaking an amazing universe into existence and sustaining it every day. And understand, what we have in the Bible more than anything is not a set of facts, but a picture. It’s a picture of God at work. It’s a picture of God’s intimate, life-giving presence to the universe and to each one of us. And that presence is called God’s Word.

Well, I'm Here

Don’t imagine that Peter, Andrew, James, and John were great men. Don’t imagine that they were diamonds in the rough and that Jesus saw the underlying greatness in them and chose them for that reason. If anything, Jesus was aware of their underlying pettiness and of their readiness to be bullies or to be cowards. But great men? I don’t think so. Probably the truest thing to say about Peter, Andrew, James, and John is also the truest thing to say about Isaiah, and maybe even the truest thing to say about Jesus. And that is, they were available.

Well, I'm Here

Holy, Holy, Holy

We the church say that the Son is of one substance with the Father. But that doesn’t mean we’ve penetrated to the essence of who God is. We also say that the Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son. But that doesn’t mean we’ve figured out what lies at the heart of the nature of God. We’re just guessing and approximating as best we can. So here’s where it comes out. Ordinary Christians like you and I don’t bother trying to sort out the inner workings of the Holy Trinity. Instead we focus on worshiping the Trinity, on worshiping the Mystery that is God!

Forgiveness, Part 2 of 77

Not being able to forgive can make you feel uncomfortable, like you have a pebble in your shoe. And the problem is, if you don’t deal with it, it’ll leave you sore, maybe even limping. So I want to say something more about forgiveness this morning. And that’s probably unavoidable given our culture. Because our culture doesn’t practice forgiveness so much, not real forgiveness. We dissemble when we ought to apologize. “I’m sorry if you were hurt,” we say. And we dismiss when we ought to forgive. “Don’t worry about it,” we say. “It was nothing.” But ours isn’t the only culture.

Forgiveness, Part 2 of 77

Forgive Us Our Debts

The Christian and the Christian community have a default inclination in the direction of forgiveness. We are forgiving people and we are a forgiving community, or we are not Christian in any meaningful sense of that word.

Forgive Us Our Debts

A Kingdom Caricature

Imagine a community living in the midst of a city—whether first-century Rome or twenty-first-century Houston or Columbus—imagine a community living in the midst of a city, a community characterized by love, a community filled to overflowing with the kindness and generosity of God. Imagine how a good caricaturist would draw that community. That’s what Paul urges the church in Rome to be. And that’s what he urges us to be, too.

Eyes On Jesus

We are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses. And they’re watching to see how we run. They’re watching to see if we turn aside to the right or to the left. They’re watching to see if we wait upon the Lord. They’re watching to see if we look for the Lord to make us strong, so we can run and not grow weary. They’re watching to see if we sprout wings and fly, like Usain Bolt!

Eyes On Jesus

Given

Do you ever wonder why you have faith in Jesus? Whether your faith is strong and stable or weak and wavering, where did it come from to begin with? How is it that you have faith, when somebody else doesn’t? That’s a good question, though the answer doesn’t lie with us. Whether we’re talking about your faith and my faith, about John Calvin’s faith and Mother Theresa’s faith, about the martyr Stephen’s faith and the Virgin Mary’s faith—faith in Jesus is always given by God.

Road Signs

This place, this home, has left its mark on us. Think of all the songs we’ve sung in this room. Think of all the prayers we’ve said here. Think of the baptisms. Maybe you or your kids or your grandkids: baptized here. Think of all the times the Body and Blood of Christ were given for you and for me and for so many others right here in this holy space. Think of the couples united in marriage here. Think of the saints whose final stop was in this room.

Road Signs

Faith and Doubt

The man is desperate to find help for his son. Jesus assures him that everything’s going to be okay—if only he has faith. The man’s response is famous, frank, and honest. He says, “I do believe. Help me with my unbelief.” Did you catch that? Belief and unbelief are living together in the man’s heart. With him faith and doubt are next-door neighbors. And we’re not surprised by that. We know all about it from personal experience. There’s nothing unusual about faith and doubt existing in combination.
