God’s yes to the world!
Posted: 14 September 2012
This Sunday we are looking at God's "yes" to their world from 1 John 2:12-17.
Very often we think of God's laws and commands as his "no" to us and the world.
"No, don't do that!"
"No, don't touch that!"
"No don't say that!"
As a result whenever Christians start talking about what we should and shouldn't do we come across as boring grumblers who tell the world everything they mustn't do rather than excited poets telling the beautiful and mesmerising story about what God has dreamed for his world. This is an idea that my old Ethics lecturer talks about in an article called "How to Say YES to the World".
This Sunday at Vine Church we look at this "yes" in a part of scripture that seems to say "no":
"Do not love the world or anything in the world." (1 John 2:15)
Looking forward to seeing your there.
