Fall Teaching Series

knowing-godFor the upcoming weeks we will be re-visiting our purpose as a church: Knowing God.

Knowing God entails death and resurrection – a death as we put our deadly doings down and stand in Christ, Him alone, gloriously complete. And to the measure that we do so, we experience a resurrection, a newness of life … for ourselves …..and for the neighborhood.

Last Sunday we talked about how staying patiently engaged in adversity has a way to help us know God, as God. Here’s the text for our study:

But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish in order that I may gain Christ, and may be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings, being conformed to his death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. ~ Phil 3:7-11

“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, Do not resist an evildoer. But if anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also; 40 and if anyone wants to sue you and take your coat, give your cloak as well; 41 and if anyone forces you to go one mile, go also the second mile. 42 Give to everyone who begs from you, and do not refuse anyone who wants to borrow from you.
