Hard: How To Change Everything With A Simple Step

It’s hard to believe in Jesus! To believe in Jesus fully, to believe in Jesus as more than a personal Savior, to believe in Jesus without qualifications, to believe in Jesus as God’s way to run the world, to believe in Jesus and his Sermon on the Mount, to believe in Jesus as the unimagined solution for a world gone wrong and not as merely chaplain or cheerleader for our favorite version of the status quo is very hard to do.

Brian Zahnd, A Farewell to Mars

It’s said that “Jesus is perfect theology.” Amen. That is a loaded statement and there’s a lot to unpack in that one short sentence. But if we believe that Jesus is the exact image of God then we should expect to see Heaven in our lives and on earth.

“The lost beauty of God’s good creation is what is recovered in the Incarnation.”

Brian Zahnd, Beauty Will Save the World: Rediscovering the Allure and Mystery of Christianity

We are approaching Christmas. Some will say “Yay”, others will groan. I love Christmas! Probably, because one of my primary love languages is receiving gifts. But, another reason I love the Christmas season is celebrating the incarnation of Jesus.

The incarnation of Jesus is such an incredibly huge and deep topic that I could only to hope to scratch the surface.

Beauty

Getting Jesus right is absolutely essential if we are to recover the beauty of Christianity because Jesus is the beauty of Christianity!

Brian Zahnd, Beauty Will Save the World

Thinking rightly about Jesus is crucial not only to Christianity but to the Christian! We mustn’t accept Jesus at salvation as the total of Christianity then relegate Him to optional in experience. He is the sum of all the parts.

He is Christianity!

He is Life!

He is All!

Good

“Original sin” is not the foundation of human being. Prior to what we call “original sin” is original goodness. God said so. So cheer up.

Brian Zahnd

Original sin.This topic is a super deep theological discussion that I do not want to dive into here. I love this quote because I think Brian sums up what has been rolling around my brain for a few years.

The story of creation shows us that at humanity’s inception God said we were very good. Now, we all know that sin entered the world and the rest as they say is history. But, let’s not move past what God has spoken. Let’s only move further into what He has said. Let it seep into every fiber of who you are and what you do.

He sees you as good. He spoke it from the beginning. Sure, sin had it’s way. Sure, you let it take you with it. But, you are good. Because of Jesus and his ever-flowing grace, God sees you as good.

Rest here.
