God Was Pleased To Reveal His Son In Me

 

 

 

 

 

Mystery, faith, salvation and awaking to Christ’s likeness within us, adoption and sonship, being in the family, discovering the Word in scripture, and living from union, we discuss this and more with Matthew Hester in a passionate conversation around the love of God. Matthew is an author, pastor of Dominion Church (Greer SC), and founder of Hester Ministries and Present Truth Academy.

QUOTES

“The stress most of us carry is we try to be something we already are.”

“…But a Huiothesia baptism was not backward baptism it was forward baptism.  Why? Because this is not about what you have done this is about where you’re headed.”

“Adoption doesn’t make us sons (we already are sons) it speaks to our placement, to our sonship.”

“When I awake, I will awake in His likeness.”

“In the evangelical church, in particular, but a large portion of the church by extension, so much of what we preach and so much of what we offer is about trying to get God into us. What if we shift the focus to awakening to the fact that He’s already there.”

Regarding conversion, “Paul’s own account of his conversion (in Galatians 1:15-16) he says, “the day it pleased God to reveal Himself in me.”

“Could it be that when we’re leading someone into salvation it’s about, “Hey listen, it’s time to wake up. It’s time to understand that this is who you are. You don’t have to pray a secret (or specific) prayer to get Jesus in you.”

“I preach Christ to awakened hearts.”

“The Father wants the John genesis to take over the Genesis genesis.”

“Our ability to repent is proof we have the mind of Christ. If you didn’t have the mind of Christ, you wouldn’t feel the need to repent.”

“Who’s the lover of your soul, is it the bible or is it Jesus?”

“When you pray, who do you pray to, do you pray to the bible, no, you pray to Jesus. You pray in His name. Yours not praying in the name of scripture”

WHEN LOVE COMES TO TOWN / with DEREK TURNER

He came and he walked beside us, He said, “I will never leave you, I will never forsake you; you are not alone, you belong.” When we discover this love, we are transformed and we begin to love like He does. On Palm Sunday Derek speaks about the cross and how we are invited to live surrendered and sure in love. He talks about laying down our loves, loving our enemies, and seeing the kingdom come.

DANIEL GROTHE / THE POWER OF PLACE

Daniel Grothe and the guys discuss his new book, The Power of Place, which speaks the sense of loneliness that many feel in today’s age of hypermobility and noncommittal wandering, reminding us of the ancient vow of stability and teaching us how we can lead a richer life of friendship, community, and purpose.

They also touch on the deconstruction movement within the church, how authoritarian leadership has wounded and undermined trust, and how healing and connection are available only where we practice the long game of family.

GOD IS NOT IN CONROL / SOVEREIGN LOVE with JASON CLARK

What if control is a flawed word to describe God’s sovereignty? What if there is an infinitely better word, a greater revelation, LOVE! Through a fresh look at God’s sovereignty, Jason invites you into a transforming encounter with the love and goodness of our heavenly Father.

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.

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

FAITHFULLY CONNECTED WITH DEREK TURNER & JASON CLARK

Matt Chandler, pastor, and writer, recently used the phrase “a sexy fad” when describing the deconstruction movement. Derek and Jason highlight his statement to dive into the nature of their own de/ and reconstruction. This podcast dives into sin, grace, reconciliation, and God’s love for all His kids, the church deep and wide. Ultimately, the guys kick off season three embracing Rom 8:38-29 That nothing… “will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
