Offended By God's Goodness

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jason speaks on the offensively good news. The Love of God. He speaks on the measureless revelation of love, how love is beyond our ability to comprehend, how love exists beyond time and space, how love continually is better than our understanding and invites us to repent, be set free and grow in love.

This message was given in February 2020 at The Gate Church

…Jesus was constantly revealing God as better than our understanding. He kept doing things God wouldn’t seem to do.

He healed people on the Sabbath, something God wouldn’t do.
He ministered to children in a way that was better than how God would do it.
He interacted with women in a way that was better than how God would do it.
Same with gentiles and even gentile women!

He didn’t call down fire on that village even though His disciples believed it was what God would do. They had Biblical reason.

He didn’t punish that woman caught in adultery even though everyone knew that’s what God would do. It also could be backed by Scripture.

Jesus constantly did things that were way better than how God would do them. Even better than what the Bible said God would do. And all along the way, He offended people with how good He believed God was.

Humanity had God boxes and Jesus kept blowing them up.

And nothing has changed.

He keeps revealing that He is better than our understanding, even better than many of our Biblical interpretations.

We all have God boxes, but thankfully, He won’t stay in them.

It’s the goodness of God that leads us to change the way we think. It’s a revelation of His kindness that causes us to repent; that leads to a renewed mind. And we are transformed as our minds are renewed.

He is good, often offensively so. And I’m learning that to grow, to be transformed, I must be willing to be offended by how good He is. I must be willing to let His kindness blow up my God boxes.

Because I’ve discovered that His goodness is what leads me to repentance and this is where I am transformed and become more like Him…

Dream Like An Old Man: Part Four, Heaven On Earth

A true dream, one that is birthed in the heart of “old men dreamers,” carries with it authority and power. Only a person who has experienced the death of vision, who has nailed vision to the cross, has access to the power of resurrection. When he dreams again, he dreams the dreams of heaven. And a dream that’s birthed in heaven has power to transform earth, it can change a family, a neighborhood, a city, a nation, it grows exponentially and has eternal significance.

Intimacy is Your Inheritance

I am convinced that our true inheritance as believers has nothing to do with money, land, or possessions of any kind. It’s simply our Father’s love revealed.

Learning To Live From Above

So how am I to deal with the good versus evil paradigm of the world that I still live in? Do I call it out? Do I expose, judge, and accuse those with opposing views and opinions? How do I involve myself in the fray without becoming frayed?

“Yeah? How do you think it became known as the missionary position?” I asked. Nobody laughed. But I didn’t want to sleep with my wife so we could practice being good missionaries; I wanted to sleep with my wife because it was cold!
