Matthew 19:16-30 - Life Under God
This week we start a new series the will lead us all the way to Christmas day, where we celebrate the fullness of God coming down to earth to dwell with us. He is Emmanuel. In this series called WITH, we will look at the ways we misunderstand God's desire for relationship, considering how the various spiritual postures humanity takes, are often one and the same.
What the Bible shows is that from his plan in creation, in the central moment of our redemption and even at the culmination of all things, God's desire was to be with us. So why should we expect something different now? And why do we think a life squashed under the weight of his expectations is his desire?
