On Sunday we looked at Luke 6. Having been reading through some of Jesus' teaching, we zoomed in on this example of his teaching. They are challenging words. Very challenging!
Here's the whiteboard image of some of the things we learned about together.
We love. We bless. We give and forgive. We pray. And this was the point... we don't simply do this for our friends or people we like. Everyone does that - mostly. When we start to do this for people who we do not naturally like, or who don't like us, that's Christlike! And beyond that - loving, blessing, giving, praying even with people who hate us or who we really don't like or feel uncomfortable with... Jesus challenges his followers to break the mould and live in surprising ways and so demonstrate something of the kingdom of God.
The gospel page
This part of the website is given to simple daily readings and meditations on the good news of Jesus, some times called the gospel, or the injil. It will help us to hear and understand the way of Jesus Christ.
