    Love it! This is the kind of stuff I can never hear enough! Looking forward to hearing it AGAIN on Sunday. Also looking forward to practicing it all in the new context of RAC. You rock, David! Please try to make sure you get some rest this weekend. Sunday will be a great day! Can’t wait to celebrate with everybody!

    Thanks guys. It was a great day. So many helping, excited, servant hands! As I have been preparing to preach this series, one of the features of our church that gets me excited is our small groups. As a preacher, it gives me freedom to know that my sermon is not the only shot people get at these texts. In many ways, I am a teacher/ tour guide/ introducer, but it is the small groups where people re-visit the texts and wrestle through how we live them out. So a big shout out to all you small group leaders! You rock! May you dig in to these passages and find great delight in the Gospel of Christ.

    Reflecting on the question you poised on Sunday in your sermon, “How does the knowledge of these epiphanies change everything?” and Titus 2:14, I came across this quote from Jonathan Edwards that sums up the importance of acknowledging the epiphany itself each and every day.

    “If we lose a sense of the greatness & generosity of the divine love, there will be no resources of grace to motivate the life of holiness”

    I love that by laying down our self-contructed securities, our good Father provides an comprehensive security in Himself. Our lives are in fact now “hidden with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3)

    Yep, great word– ‘self-constructed securities’. They always feel more like props– flimsy, plastic, but oh so comforting.
