The passage we are going to look at today is Colossians 3:1-7. Before we get into the passage, I want to start with an illustration. One of my favorite stories is Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. My favorite character in that tale is Sam Gamgee.
Tonight, we are going to look at a passage of scripture that, to be frank, is difficult. For those of you who come from a Roman Catholic background, you will know about the Stations of the Cross and you will recognize this scripture as one of those stations. While most of the stations reflect on the actions of Jesus, this station, the fourth station, reflects upon the actions of Peter and his denial of Jesus.
We have different views of Genesis 1 - but keeping Biblical inerrancy as the center of our interpretations is most important.
Today I want to speak to you about being lost and being found. Who among us has been out there, on the road, and completely baffled as to where we are? Maybe heading up to the Dragon in Tennessee you took a wrong turn and ended up who knows where? Well, today I can’t be your road GPS, but I want to speak on how God’s revelation to us is our spiritual GPS.
Catherine of Siena (1347 – 1380) was a woman devoted to her God and her Church. Deeply moved by the corruption of the Church in her time, Catherine dedicated her life to holiness and piety. After learning how to read and write, she began working on The Dialogue in December of 1377 finishing it in October of 1388.
Design is a concept in science that was accepted up until the mid-19th century. When Darwin showed up with his theory of Natural Selection, the concept of design became unfashionable. That was for “religious” people.
Distinct in the Christian faith form all other worldviews is the doctrine of the Incarnation. Other religions and worldviews may include elements of a god walking among humanity (a virgin birth, or even a human becoming a god). However, no other faith claims that the Creator of the universe, out of love for His human creations, was born both human and God for the express purpose of suffering and dying to redeem His beloved.
When we think of astronomical science today, it is mind-blowing how far this observation has advanced. No longer are we tied to this planet, but humanity can now observe space from space. The technologies that have been developed have allowed observers to see even greater movement in the entirety of space.
