The God Who Sees: Your Opponents

Feb 18, 2024

It is one thing to think about how God sees us, our neighbor, or those who haven’t heard (the nations). However, it is an entirely different challenge to consider how God sees our opponents. When we think about those who oppose us, the feelings draw upon a deep well of emotions, and something feels much more visceral about the topic. It is easy to feel overwhelmed when people confront us with their objections to the Christian faith, especially nowadays when the objections are so closely tied to how people understand their identity and when disagreement itself is considered offensive and hateful. How can we bridge the seemingly insurmountable gap between the convictions of contemporary culture and the invitation of Christ? How did Jesus do this? How did Paul do this? I am looking forward to being with you this Sunday and exploring these questions together.
