This is a place where we aim to share our reflections, stories, and lessons as a means to unite all those who seek the truth in this journey we call life. With the craziness and distractions that occupy the majority of our time and attention, we want to be that breath of fresh air that often seems so elusive. Molded by respectable teachers whom we’ve met, read about, watched, or listened to, we are merely instruments that serve to be a light to all those who come across this site. We have much to share and are so excited that you have chosen to join us!
Despite our current titles, we are not defined by what we do. Instead, our identities are rooted in Christ. C.S. Lewis once said, “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."
Thanks for visiting! Have a look around and please like, comment, or share!
THE KINGDOM OF GOD
Power, comfort, success, and recognition. These are what drive the kingdom of the here and now. If now is all there is, it seems natural to chase after these things.
Jesus takes the world's view of living and turns it upside-down. Scripture is filled with seemingly paradoxical statements. Blessed are you that weep now. To be great be a servant. In order to gain life lose it. His power is made perfect in weakness.
We're told we should model the life of Christ. But if he is merely an example, his teachings are entirely a burden.
The message of the gospel is that we can live in a reversal of values because we live through his reversal. He took our place. He put himself where we deserve to be: cast out and rejected. He placed us where He deserves to be: before the throne of God, accepted and beloved.
It's in this exchange that God reveals His glory.
