This is a paraphrase, but I really like it! If you want to read the NIV of this verse, you can find it here.

Each Thursday during my time away, I’ll be sharing a passage from a book that has impacted and informed my theology. I’ll also supply some questions for you to ponder/answer. It’s like a mini-faith formation class/Bible study!

So, let’s get thoughtful!

You can order a copy of Velvet Elvis here.

Questions for thoughtful consideration:

  1. Who are you in Christ? Do you understand that you are a saint, not because of what you’ve done, but because of what Jesus has done for you?
  2. What does this mean for your participation in a community of faith (ie your church) and for your participation in the wider community outside of the church? 
  3. What steps can you take to “trust that what God keeps insisting is true about us, is actually true”?

Until tomorrow, dear friends, keep on thinking it through! This, too, is part of worship.
