In February, we looked at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry in Luke as a series of transformational moments that led His followers to radically re-interpret who they are, how God works, and their place in the coming Kingdom.
As Jesus’ disciples here in Seattle, we are called to move through transformation too. Sometimes we are going to feel freed by the renewal of our minds, and sometimes we’d rather push Jesus off a cliff.
Sometimes we want to cling to our old ways of seeing God and ourselves, those simpler understandings where we knew what was right and how to “be good” and “be enough”. We are called, however, to trust that God is revealing more of God’s self to us so that we might better understand how to love like God loves.
