Let’s connect
Community is the context for discipleship. The Christian faith is not intended to be lived in isolation; we were made for relationship with God and for relationship with each other. We belong not merely to a local church, but to a people.

"Jesus: Our Rest and Our Restorer - Part 2"

This Sunday, we continued our study of Luke 6:6-11. Last week, we looked at the call to find our rest in Jesus as a spiritual discipline. Religion never brings rest. Only the finished work of Christ does, and we need to learn the discipline of finding our rest daily and continually in the gospel. This week, we picked up on Jesus’ Sabbath struggles by seeing that the Sabbath not only rescues us from our self-righteousness and self-salvation but also from our cynicism. Sin and religion can lead us to be cynical. Instead of looking for Jesus to show up in sin and brokenness, we start looking for sin everywhere. Finding fault can become a spiritual blood-sport. We expect to see failure around us instead of offering forgiveness. We become hyper-critical rather than supernaturally hopeful. The mission of the church dies when we become cynical because we stop believing in Christ and stop cheering on the underdog. Has cynicism clouded your vision and criticism/pessimism become your default mode? Let’s come together and plead with God to give us the mind and heart of Christ. Let us start believing in the Christ we say we believe and start expecting and seeking that Christ would save broken sinners just like us! Let’s learn the spiritual discipline of destroying our own insidious religious cynicism with glorious gospel hope!
