Saints, Becoming More Than Christians

 

 

 

 

 

The Bible uses the word, Christian, to describe followers of Jesus a grand total of three times. But there’s another identifier that fills the pages of the New Testament–a word we’ve mistakenly reserved for the halo-wearing elite, losing something profound in the process. Saints.

Identity, union, searching scripture through the lens of Jesus, and holiness discovered through community, in this podcast, Addison Bevere brilliantly describes that we are beloved saints.

QUOTES

“Saints are the people who wake up now instead of waiting till the next lifetime.”

“We are saints, together… Holiness is communal.”

“Religion is always the attempts of the lesser to control the greater.”

“We understand the law and the prophets through the lens of the Son, through the beloved Son…when we get that, the Law and the Prophets actually start to make a lot of sense.”

DALE HOWIE / UNSPOKEN SERMONS ON THE GOOD NEWS OF INCLUSION

Paraphrasing the sermons of George MacDonald, Dale Howie shares his sometimes painful, often beautiful, journey of awakening to the irreducible truth of life discovered in relationship. He speaks to grace, our common Fatherhood, our inclusion in Christ’s life, death and resurrection, our union, and the wonder of our humanity. A humble storyteller and relational theologian, Dale speaks as a father on behalf of Our Father, who loves all His children with a reconciling love.

ROD WILLIAMS / UNION WITH DISTINCTION

Union, a Triune God, mutual indwelling others-centered love (perichoresis) approaching scripture to discover Jesus, and communion are some of the themes Rod Williams dives into. What if “all” means “all” and God isn’t distant? There is no distance, no separation in God and this conversation is a beautiful invitation to awaken to that discovery and our union with Him.
