This is the short video from the end of our teaching time on Sunday. As Jesus commits his spirit into the hands of God, I was thinking of how God commits his Kingdom into ours. As Paul writes in II Corinthians 5, Jesus has reconciled us to God, but God has entrusted us with the ministry of reconciliation, making us his ambassadors.
The questions for reflection are in the video as well as in the liner notes of the video which can also be found on Vimeo.
When, on the cross, Jesus committed His spirit into the hands of God, He set the scene for God to commit His Kingdom into ours. How does knowing that God has faith in us make you feel? How differently would you act if you knew/believed that the fate of the world depended on you? How can you be the hands of God, the feet of God?
