Being the Church Part 1 - Church Order

Matthew 18:15-20, Romans 13:8-10. To read all of scripture in context, is to understand it all in light of this fact; to Love is to fulfill the law! To be the church, we cannot escape, go around, dodge, one up, defy, or outsmart the bottom line: the call is to LOVE. *With that in mind we know HOW you are to approach one in the church who has sinned against you… with total humility, with unconditional love, with a spirit of forgiveness, and with total mercy….WHY- because you are one in the same, and your Father has showed these same attributes to you! And we are called by his grace into agreement. We agree that Christ is the Lord of the church. Do you see that by so reaching this conclusion- and only in this conclusion, can the church be a mature body of believers- sharing in the mission as equals! If Christ is given Lordship of the church, we all stand by grace. None stands above another.

Let's Run

Bill continued this week's theme of faith without sight, commenting on the disciples' lack of belief and understanding throughout Jesus's earthly ministry. He talked about having faith even when we don't have evidence, and trusting in Jesus to help us understand when we can't.

Following Jesus

John 1:35-42, Luke 9:23-24, Mark 10:17-22, Ephesians 2:8-9 How are we invited to follow Jesus? What does it cost to follow Jesus? What do we do when we don't feel like following Jesus? Jesus invites people into a relationship with him through their relationships with others. The cost of following Jesus is to deny ourselves daily, and to be willing to set aside our comfort and well-being in order to follow him. We might struggle with faith, but Jesus's faithfulness stands in for our unbelief.

Walking Faithfully

God is calling us all on this faith journey, but there is an irony spoken of in scripture about the shape and look of this calling. I spoke from Romans 11 this week. I emphasized verse 32 and then zoomed out looking at what this (imprisonment of all and mercy to all) meant in context. He's the potter and we're the clay. The biblical narrative, keyed in Christ as the center, provides life and encouragement for not only accepting his Lordship, but celebrating it.

Made Right With God

Jesus demonstrated his love for us by dying to heal our brokenness. His action toward us has made us right with God. God came all the way into our life to bring us back into relationship with him. We respond by no longer judging by the flesh and considering everyone as a beloved creation of God, and by carrying the message of reconciliation to those around us.
