In the story of Noah and the flood, we see a God who grieves for the wickedness of humanity and yet remains committed to them and to creation.

God’s will for humanity is that we do good.  (Audio is bad).

PRESENCE

March 17, 2011

(Part 3 in the series “Jesus, the Gospel, the Kingdom, & Some People in a Room”)

The kingdom of God is about presence.  Colossians 1 tells us that God “. . . was pleased to live fully in Jesus, reconciling the world to Himself.”  The Kingdom of God was present (“at hand”) in Jesus because God, the king, was present.  Colossians 2 goes on to tell us that “we too have received fullness in Christ.”  God’s kingdom is present in us and through us to the world.  We are fully God’s and God is working in us to reconcile the world, just as he was in Jesus.

PRESENCE | Part 3 of Jesus, the Gospel, the Kingdom, & Some People in a Room

A message about seeing the kingdom as an active presence in the world.  Unfortunately, the audio wasn’t recorded correctly.  There is a lot of excess noise, and at times it is difficult to hear what is being said.  We’re sorry about that issue.  However, because several people have requested the audio, we have gone ahead and made it available.
