Sovereign Love

God Is Not In Control

 

 

 

 

 

 

This message was given to Newsong Church Nov 2016.  Jason introduced the message of his forthcoming book, God Is (Not) In Control. Jason teaches on the sovereignty of God and how a greater revelation of sovereign Love will lead to greater trust and intimacy.

#GodIsNotInControl #Intimacy #SovereignLove

 

Have you ever heard the phrase, “God is in control” and it just didn’t sit right? Maybe it was given with good intention – to ease your pain, confusion, or disappointment. Maybe it was given to increase trust. But it seemed to only confuse your heart further by raising the question, “If He is in control and He is good, then why did this bad thing happen?”

What if control is a flawed word to describe God’s sovereignty? What if there is an infinitely better word, a greater revelation – LOVE!

This book is an invitation to discover the sovereignty of God’s love. I believe this message will empower greater trust and intimacy and it is my joy and honor to present it to you.

God Bless

MARK KARRIS/ RELIGIOUS REFUGEES

With grace and insight, Mark speaks on the disorienting faith shift so many are currently experiencing regarding their thoughts about God, the church, and ourselves. We dive into Mark’s new book, Religious Refugees, and Mark encourages those who, because of a shift in their theology, have either felt a sense of not belonging in their home church or have even been rejected.

THOMAS JAY OORD / GOD CAN’T

“Given that we start with God’s power…we end up giving God the kind of capabilities that make God culpable; in other words, morally responsible for not only causing but allowing bad things…I think there are good biblical reasons to object to that standard view of Gods power.” Thomas Jay Oord

It’s a Love Story

Two thousand years ago, God clothed Himself in my separation—my lost identity. He became my sin, the distortion that so easily besets me. And in His beaten and bloodied body, He destroyed its power over me once and for all, making me brand-new, renewing all the potential and promise of which He had originally dreamed.

The Nature of Soap

Next to the toilet was a large barrel filled with clean-ish water. Floating in the water was a big plastic cup. The cup was for both flushing and bathing. Oh, I forgot to note, the toilet room was also the shower.

LLOYD CLARK / I AM ENOUGH

With humor and authenticity, Lloyd talks about the finished work of the Cross, how Jesus fixed the problem of separation, and our invitation to awaken to our union.

A Matter Of Trust

It could be said Peter failed during his time of testing but it wasn’t about his success, it was about his experience. Jesus already knew Peter would deny Him. Yet the experience was essential to Peter’s journey. His ownership of that experience from denial to redemption was what allowed him to be life to his friends.
