Grace Changes Everything - Week Seven Grace Changes our Hope

Grace Changes our Worship

Grace Changes Everything • May 21, 2017 • Paul Stewart

Isaiah and the prophets condemned Israel’s insensitivity to the poor as covenant breaking. They taught that materialism and ignoring the poor are sin; whereas, mercy to the poor is evidence of true worship.

Grace Changes Our Work

Grace Changes Everything • May 14, 2017 • Paul Stewart

Human beings were given work to do in the garden, before the fall - before sin and before anything was wrong with the world. Work, therefore, is something we were designed to do. But work, like everything else, has been corrupted and the meaning and motivation behind our work has changed. Without God work becomes about self-provision or self-justification. With God our work can become the gracious expression of creative energy in the service of others.

Grace Changes Our Mission

Grace Changes Everything • May 7, 2017 • Paul Stewart

Grace radically reshapes our mission to and our posture within the specific place we live. We are called to love and serve our place of residence, rather than resemble it, or remove ourselves from it.

Grace Changes our Community

Grace Changes Everything Week 3 • April 30, 2017 • Paul Stewart

Jesus' life, death and resurrection create a new humanity. By focusing on Christ we are able to humble ourselves and live together in tremendous unity.

Grace Changes our Motivation

Grace Changes Everything Wk 2 • April 23, 2017 • Paul Stewart

Behind all human rebellion and sin is a faulty picture of God. The quality of our relationship with God depends on the way we imagine God. We cannot get rid of God without creating God substitutes - idols. Idolatry is looking to something to give you the kind of hope, the kind of value, the kind of safety that only God himself can give you.
