Weekend Wisdom / A Gospel Jerk

Here’s the video of the presentation that developed from my last blog post, “Have I ever told you about the time the Gospel made me an intolerant jerk?”  If you want to see me say in 3000 words and 38 minutes, what I was able to say in 900 words on the blog, here’s your chance!

This presentation adds the Biblical background from Ephesians 2:11-22, where Jesus’ sacrifice put to death hostility.  Normally we think of this as addressing hostility between humanity and God, and that’s certainly true.  But this passage also has significant implications for our relationships with other people.

This is a very rich passage of scripture theologically.  You can also get bogged down in all the circumcision language.  But there are some very potent practical applications.  I hope I can help you find your way to those.

My view?  Any understanding of the gospel that doesn’t fundamentally alter the way we see and interact with other people is incomplete.

By the way, this is a part of a lengthy study of the book of Ephesians.  You can find the whole series on Bridge City Community Church’s Youtube channel.
