Hi Five Oakers, Here's last weekend's sermon in 10 tweets, "I’m Dead. I’m Indwelt. I’m Surrendering," Galatians 2:11-21
1// Here's the link to the Planet Money show:" Inside The Credit Card Black Market." 'I'm a criminal but you can trust me.'
2// Lessons from Peter's Pattern: God uses all kinds of personalities.
3// ...Sinful patterns are not easily overcome.
4// ...Discipleship is a lifelong process.
5// ...God overcomes our worst traits to accomplish his purposes.
6// It matters that we're mess-ups. Peter not acting in line with the truth of the gospel. There is a line. It's the truth of the gospel.
7// It matters how we live. Sin is destructive, dishonoring to, traitorous, disobeying God.
8// Matt 28:19-20, disciples are people who are LEARNING to do everything that Jesus commanded.
9// Sin is serious. The irony is the more we understand that, the more we're prone to abandon the gospel. "We need some rules around here."
10// I'm dead (to the law as a way of life). I'm indwell (the glove). I'm surrendering (I can trust a God who loves me like that).
Caesar Kalinowski: "...discipleship can simply be understood as the 'evangelizing' of our hearts."
Elyse Fitzpatrick on parenting: "...Instead of transmitting the gloriously liberating and life-changing truths of the Gospel, we have taught our children that what God wants from them is morality."
