Abiding In Love

Session 7.17 for April 26, 2015

How far do we need to go to show that we love in the way that God loves? The author of 1st John expects us to be willing to go as far as Jesus went. We must be willing to die for our neighbor to love as God loves. And while this may feel extreme, the author also suggests that when we see someone in need and have the means to help, we must help. If we do not help then we cannot claim to carry the love of God inside of us.

Living in Love

Session 7.16 for April 19, 2015

One of the most beloved images of what it means to be loved by God is one of adoption into God's family. If we allow ourselves to be open to God's love then we discover that there has always been a place for us to belong. As we discover this truth, our lives are transformed into more whole and loving lives.

Word and Deed

Session 7.14 for April 12, 2015

As people of faith, we are often told that if we simply lay claim to some set of beliefs, that is the end of it. Yet, in today's text we are reminded that our beliefs and our words mean nothing if they do not match the way we act, our deeds. How do we bring our beliefs, in line with our actions, even our most subtle actions?

Honesty in Prayer

Session 7.13 for March 29, 2015

When Jesus goes to the garden of Gethsemane to pray on the night he is arrested, we see a side of him we have not yet seen in the gospels. In this scene, Jesus is hurting and grieving. He is confessing that he does not want to go through with what is about to happen and he asks God to change the plan. What happens when we pray? Is it difficult for us to be so honest with God as we see Jesus being in the garden? How does it make us feel when we see Jesus so uncertain? Prayer is an important part of a life a faith and when we pay attention to how Jesus prayed, we can find new ways to engage God in prayer.
