Gate of Life

1 Peter 2:19-25 You have returned to the shepherd
John 10:1-10 The gate for the sheep

Jesus presents us with a "way" of life -- a "way" to life, lived in fullness and wellness. This points us to practical questions: "how then shall we live?". What does it mean to live in Christ? What is the "way" of true life for you?

Save Yourselves

Acts 2:14a, 36-41 Save yourselves from this corrupt generation
Luke 24:13-35 The walk to Emmaus

Peter enjoins the people to save themselves from the "corrupt generation". None of us has any trouble identifying the corruption of our generation. The challenge is to recognize the solution in the way of Christ. Where does the corruption take hold of you? And how does this faith in Christ set you free?

If Your Forgive

1 Peter 1:3-9 A new birth into a living hope
John 20:19-31 Receive the Holy Spirit

When Jesus speaks of forgiveness, he seems to give the disciples a lot of power -- the power to forgive others their sins. Forgiveness is powerful. It is also a dilema for many. Some find forgiveness too heavy, others find it too light, too trivial. How do we truly let forgiveness flow in our lives? How does it free us for life?
