moulded into romans 8

Tonite was a team preach, me and a younger leader. We have met 5 times; to explore a Biblical text; to discuss it’s application; to work on how together we could preach the text.

Everyone was given a piece of clay as they arrived. Romans 8 is about God’s love. What if this love is not an abstract theory, but meant to be expressed concretely? What if love is not something to talk about, but something to express in action?

Tentatively he handed his piece of clay to me. I moulded it with mine and passed it onto another person. One by one, people moulded their unique piece of clay into the whole.

romans 8 at 250.jpg Might this be church? Our colourful unique talents, made greater as a whole. God’s love as concrete, expressed in and through one another.

None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing¬ónothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable¬óabsolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us. Romans 8:38-9
