imagine the scene :: jesus just finished what is now his best known teaching – the sermon on the mount – a practical manifesto for this new Way. the dry heat of the galilean sun beat down on the son of man as he and the disciples descended the mountain. the amazed crowds follow through the dust kicked up by this rogue rabbi who taught differently than the others – this one spoke like he actually knew what he was talking about.

he’s just touched on nearly everything, and their heads must have been spinning as they tried to make sense of it all – the benefits of living for his unseen kingdom; how to pray with meaning; turning the law of moses on its head and replacing its rigidity with a law of love.

who was this guy, anyway?!?

powerful, appropriate and healing words from eugene cho yesterday ::

I believe in the Gospel of Christ

I, too, believe in Jesus and I believe in the Gospel. I believe in a Gospel that not only saves but serves; a Gospel that restores all things; a Gospel that ushers in the Kingdom of God. I believe in a Gospel that is not just merely propositional truth but that which has been incarnationally personified in Jesus. I believe in a Gospel that is not just for us – but good news for all of us – especially the least, marginalized, forgotten, forsaken, and alone.

I believe in this Gospel and I believe this Gospel is bigger, deeper, wider, and more vast that we can ever imagine. I believe this because this Gospel has room for you and me. Even you and me.

I preach this Gospel. I live for this Gospel. Thank you, Jesus.

  i’m thankful for people like eugene cho. read the rest of his post here.

omg.

did your church service this weekend make jesus do this? why or why not?

what is it that you think causes God to look down on our weekend services and be pleased? what do you think causes him to be displeased?

disturbing?
