All Things New

January 14, 2018

According to 1 Corinthians 4 we are called to live lives of power, but it is power rooted in love and a gentle spirit.  It’s the kind of power our world deems foolish. What does it mean to live an unoffendable life rooted in foolish power?

"Therefore, we renounce any form of racial and ethnic indifference, exclusion, subjugation, or oppression as a grave sin again God and our fellow human beings.  We lament the legacy of every form of racism throughout the world, and we seek to confront that legacy through repentance, reconciliation, and biblical justic.  We seek to repent of every behavior in which we have been overtly complicit with the sin of racism, both past and present; and in confession and lament we seek forgiveness and reconciliation.

Further, we acknowledge that there is no reconciliation apart from human struggle to stand against and to overcome all personal, institutional and structural prejudice responsible for racial and ethnic humiliation and oppression  We call upon Nazarenes everywhere to identify and seek to remove acts and structures of prejudice, to facilitate occasions for seeking forgiveness and reconciliation, and to take action toward empowering those who have been marginalized."

- Church of the Nazarene Manual, paragraph 915, 2017-2021

Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11 reveals God's love and concern for the poor, those who mourn, the brokenhearted, and those who are in prison. God cares about those that are mistreated or forgotten. God cares about the people that go unseen.

This week, Pastor Linsey explores what it means for God to see the unseen and what it means for the people of God (that's us!) to join God on this mission.
