018: Helplessness, Faithfulness, and Intentions
Some thoughts on Lent, Easter, and suffering. Discovering holes in theology when you put limits on God’s faithfulness. And my goals for the podcast and my women’s ministry.
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me – heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Such confidence as this is ours through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant – not of the letter, but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
2 Corinthians 3:4-6
We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.
