Abounding In Hope

 

 

 

 

 

This message was given to Newsong Church in 2016.  Jason talks about how Proverbs 13:2 “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life” is not meant to be a commentary on life. We can actually choose by faith to live in “longing fulfilled” regardless of our circumstances. We are instructed to live abounding in hope.

All God’s Stories Have Good Endings

David experienced the valley but the valley was never God’s heart for him. Jesus went to a cross. But the cross was never His focus. Death is never the focus with God, He is always and only about resurrection. Jesus said He came to give us life and life more abundantly (John 10:10). Jesus—the Father revealed—was focused on the joy of resurrection life.

Jesus, Baseball, and Shame

Here’s the thing, if we believe God is about control, it affects everything. Every experience and encounter is filtered through the insecurity of our relationship with a small God. A control-based perspective of God is evidenced by the subtle anxiety we experience in our heart when the furnace breaks down, to the blatant sense of righteousness when a rapist gets the death penalty.

How to Parent Like the Father

We have grown in our understanding that discipline is about revealing, releasing, and empowering identity.
