Phil provides an overview of what it looks like for us to follow Jesus & go the way of the cross. This is not about discipline & resuscitation; following Jesus is more radical than that – only death & resurrection provides the pathway to freedom & life in all its fullness. Transformation is not an upgrade on our old self … we must be born again!
Jumping off Paul’s warm greetings at the close of his letter in chapter 16, Alison explores what it looks like to be vulnerable both to God & those within the family of God. With Jesus as our example, truth & vulnerability provide a way out of shame & into the fullness of life & relationship God always intended.
In this message, Chris also encourages us to take God at His word. Just like the dead seed that goes into the ground & then sprouts into life, so we are reckoned dead in Christ, only to be raised up to share in His glorious resurrection life & power. Death is swallowed up & has lost its sting: resurrection is real!
