The actual LiveBlog replay above has around 5,700 words in it, so I won’t even attempt to restate the entirety of this teaching. However, here are just a few points that will hopefully whet your appetite and encourage you to read the entire entry:
- It’s possible to have heads that are full and hearts that are empty. Sound theology should always lead us to doxology and transformation.
- Theology of suffering: suffering and humiliation, weakness, are means by which God’s Kingdom and glory are advanced. In the mystery of God, death brings life.
- This is counsel that we as believers need in our day. Peter needed this counsel. When you don’t know what to say or do, don’t talk, listen to Jesus. When you are confused and you don’t know what to believe, listen to Jesus. When God’s ways are contrary to your own natural thinking, listen to Jesus. Don’t make idols of great teachers, preachers, writers; listen to Jesus. When you think you know what to do next; put away your foolish plans and listen to Jesus.
- Maybe one reason why people aren’t falling on their faces today is that we’re not listening to God.
