Authority: The Power of God

God isn’t simply authoritative in a place-holding, power-holding sense. God’s authority is performative in nature. To a people surrounded by the empty promises of idolatry, he asks, “To whom will you liken me and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be alike?” (Isaiah 46:5) Idols can only hold a symbolic power that makes you carry them--they are images of our disoriented desire that we project on them and carry out in their name. The God of Israel, however, has real authority that he exerts on behalf of his people for his own glory.

Authority: The Power of God

Authority: God bigger than our perspective

As we talk about power and authority, one of the fundamental questions we have to wrestle with is, “can I trust God enough to actually follow him?” The book of Job contains the epic struggle of a man who struggled to make sense of the suffering he experienced and where God was in the middle of it. Job doesn’t questions God’s power or sovereignty, but he does question whether God is good and can be trusted. Job 41 contains the words of God to Job, as he invites Job to step out beyond his limited perspective to see the wildness of the world as it really is. Can anyone restrain or stop Leviathan? Job can’t, you and I can’t, but we see with Job that ultimately Leviathan is on a leash. God has a firm hold on him, and promises to one day destroy him. He is a God who sees and cares. He is a God we can trust.

Authority: Freedom and Truth

Truth and freedom - two things we desperately want and two things we have a complicated relationship with. In this passage, Jesus offers them to his followers and says that he is their source. As we watch his original hearers wrestle with what he teaches, we’re invited to consider our own resistance and misconceptions about truth and freedom. This text is both relevant and hopeful as we are reminded that truth actually is a person who gave his life for us so that we might be free.

Authority: Freedom and Truth

Authority: The Abuse of Power and the Way of the Lamb

In a world where we pursue power due to selfish ambition, or reject authority and power because we only see its abuse, Jesus shows us that properly stewarded power leads to flourishing. Power used wrongly always produces exploitation by those who grasp for power. And the result is always suffering for the people on the other end of it. But the way of the way of Christ--the way of the lamb--is willing self-sacrifice and service for the sake of others.

Life in the Spirit: In Step with the Spirit & Out of Step with the World

If your were to poll people and ask what they hope we cover in a series on Life in the Spirit my guess is that the topic of perseverance in suffering would not make the top 5. In fact we may not even seen a connection between the two, yet Jesus talks about perseverance multiple times in John 14-16 and it is a major theme of his prayer in chapter 17. Jesus says he is addressing this with them so that when they face persecution they will not fall away. The Spirit’s presence has a preserving impact on the life of the believer. There is a bigger danger than persecution and it is apostasy, which is why Jesus said he is telling them these things and why we need the ministry of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

Life in the Spirit: In Step with the Spirit & Out of Step with the World

Life in the Spirit: The Father's Authority

Life in the Spirit is not simply a subjective reality. In this passage Jesus teaches us that one of the roles of the Holy Spirit is to help us know the love of the Father and the Son, as revealed in the scriptures, so that we will obey the commandments of God - the clear, objective, and life changing calls to follow God. Obedience is a beautiful and essential aspect of what it means walk by the Spirit. This passage is an invitation to live under the authority of the Father, as we receive the love of the Son, through the Holy Spirit's help.

Life in the Spirit: Abiding in Christ

In John 15:1-17, Jesus explains what his followers must do after he leaves them. His message is simple: abide in the life I give you and the love I have for you. His love propels us to love others, and walking in obedience to him produces joy.

Life in the Spirit: Relating to the Triune God

What does it mean to be a spiritual people and how to do we relate to a God we can't see and touch? That is the focus of this series through Jesus' teaching in chapters 14 through 16 of the Gospel of John. In this instruction to his disciples, Jesus talks about the Spirit dwelling in believers, believers abiding in Jesus, and what it means to live under the Father's authority. "Life in the Spirit" begins with understanding that we have been invited to share in the Triune relationship that God has with himself.
