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

How to “Earn” a Well Done

There was a master with three servants. He was going on a journey and he called them to Him and gave each of them some money. “To one he gave five talents (sum of money), to another, two, and to another, one, each according to his own ability; and he went on his journey. You have probably heard this story. It’s found in Matthew 25 as told by Jesus. Now eventually the master returns home to, as Jesus put it, “Settle accounts.”

5Q – THE FIVEFOLD WITH BRANDON KELLY

Derek and Jason dive into the fivefold (APEST) typology of ministry as articulated in Ephesians 4:1-1 with Brandon Kelly, the co-director at 5Qcollective. APEST stands for the Apostolic, Prophetic, Evangelistic, Shepherding, and Teaching intelligence that Jesus gifted to his body.

The guys discussed the fivefold in connection with the nature of God as non-hierarchal and inclusive, laced throughout creation and culture, reconstituted and perfectly exemplified in the life and ministry of Jesus, embedded into the very foundations of the Church, and subsequently expressed through the lives of the countless saints that make it up.

Adoption as Transformation with George MacDonald

In MacDonald’s sermon “Abba, Father!” he defines spiritual adoption as transformation. For him, as it was for St. Paul, adoption was not our familiar western version of taking a non-family member into our family, but an eastern one of a spiritual coming of age, a Jewish bar mitzvah. For us, it is a transformation from within of both an internal and external nature…
