Forgiveness that Changes Lives

The first amazing word of Jesus from the cross is to answer terrible human wrong with forgiveness. He invites us to receive and display that kind of mercy in our own lives.

Forgiveness that Changes Lives

Set Right through Faith

How are we finally “set right” with God? We can never quite put ourselves right through our own efforts, but the answer comes to us in Jesus Christ.

Set Right through Faith

The Plumb Line

The Biblical prophets declared that God is concerned about the entire society—whether a society is in line with God’s will for humanity. Too often human societies have gotten badly “out of plumb.” God calls us to join with the movement of His Spirit to set things aright.

The Plumb Line

Better than the Neighbors

We often like to think that we are pretty good people, at least better than some of the neighbors! But spiritual healing comes when we acknowledge our need for forgiveness and renewal, and open ourselves to the healing power of Christ.

The Journey

God Dwells Among Us

Just as God “dwelled among” the Israelites by means of the tabernacle, so now in a far greater way God dwells among us in Christ (John 1:14). Jesus is the new temple – the point where we experience and connect with God. This does not eliminate the need for church! (contrary to what some would want to think) Rather, Jesus is at the center of the worship of the gathered community of faith. Centering on Jesus moves us past human divisions in worship and enables us to “worship in spirit and in truth,” as Jesus said to the woman in John 4.

God Dwells Among Us

Baby Jesus—From Stable to Temple

The first place Jesus goes (taken by his parents) after his birth is to church! They go to the temple to fulfill the sacrificial requirements of the Old Testament law. There they are met by Simeon and Anna, who have been in the temple awaiting what God would do. It is in the context of worship that God reveals Jesus’ destiny (declared in the blessing of Simeon). The next story Luke reports is the story of the boy Jesus going again to the temple for Passover, where he astonishes the scribes. Today we rightfully bring children to church, and with Simeon and Anna we can discern how God is at work through Christ.

God and Mountains

God dominates our lives like a majestic mountain. As we are drawn to the mountain, we are even more drawn to God. It is this God who sends us Jesus Christ, the ultimate source for peace within, as well as amongst us.

God and Mountains

Give Thanks to the Lord

Thanksgiving! Psalm 100 says to “enter God’s gates with thanksgiving,” and numerous Psalms are an expression of thanks to God. Psalm 65 is a thanksgiving psalm, depicting the joy of coming into God’s temple with an appreciation for God’s blessings. Colossians likewise urges us to “be thankful.” Thankfulness makes us aware of our blessings, but most of all raises our hearts to the Source of blessing. Authentic worship is always marked with a spirit of thankfulness.
