Today I spoke at Kingsgate Community Church from 2 Cor 13:14:
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
Here in this benediction, the Apostle Paul presents three, world shaping realities that he wants the church in Corinth to be marinaded in. These are Grace, Love / Identity and the Spirit.
Today I spoke from Luke 15:21-32 about what a community of people looks like that have understood and experienced the Father’s Love. Here are 5 key points that I made:
1. We can enjoy being part of God’s growing family
2. We can enjoy being generous and extravagant
3.Gifts truly flourish in the soil of sonship [and daughter-hood]
4. We can enjoy creating a home for those not like us
5. How we relate to each other will be fundamentally changed
