This Week's Teaching Audio: A Tree to Hang Our Shame
God rescues us from the powers that
we are enslaved to, and that lead us
Jesus lived the life that we were
created to live-a life of Shalom in
harmony with the purposes of
God in the world.
At the resurrection, God vindicated,
vindicates, the life, ministry,
and example of Jesus.
He erases our shame and
leaves it on the tree.
Our shame is on the cross:
The cross and the shame
get left behind.
Jesus invites us to a life of
discipleship and those who
are joined with him in the
resurrection have been rescued
from death and continue on
to the best possible kind of life.
He takes our shame and
makes beautiful things.
