Loopholes
Saturday, 08 June 2013
Duration: 39 mins 36 secs
Looking for loopholes comes naturally. Whether it's eating all of our vegetables or being home by curfew, no one has to teach us that there is a difference between the letter of the law and the spirit of the law. In a Jewish culture where rules trumped reason, Jesus had a new perspective on rules and loopholes. In this message, Peter gives us a question to ask ourselves when we'd rather look for the loopholes than live as God intends.

Jesus embodied the tension between grace and truth. Churches and Christians should too, but they tend to swing toward one or the other. It's easy to be a church of truth or a church of grace - to be conservative or liberal. But when churches take either of those routes, we can sense that something is wrong, something's missing.

The early Christians in Rome did not have it easy. They were persecuted, blamed for crimes they didn't commit, even fed to lions. Yet Jesus painted an encouraging picture of their circumstances; he said they were "the salt of the earth," and "the light of the world." While they were simply trying to stay alive, Jesus was saying that they had been strategically placed by God. Could this be true of your life and your circumstances too? In this message, Pastor Peter explains the influence we may not even know we have.

Passage:1 John 4:11
Duration: 45 mins 15 secs
The words used to describe Christians today often bear no resemblance to the one word Jesus wanted his followers to be known for. What would it look like if, for one day, we got it right? What if we as Christians embodied this one word? What if our behavior was so consistent with this word that folks around us were drawn to us - and to God. In this message, Pastor Peter challenges us to change the name and reputation of Christianity by becoming a group of followers characterized by this one thing.
