Title: This is His Throne
Scripture: Luke 22:66-23:25
Speaker: Tim Spanburg,
"The more I make my life, my well-being, my enlightenment, and my success primary, the farther I step from reality. Thus the hell-bound do not travel downward; they travel inward, cocooning themselves behind a mass of vanity, personal rights, religiosity and defensiveness. Obsession with self is the defining mark of a disintegrating soul." - Jeff Cook
"For a while I couldn’t pray. I didn’t dare to. In the most secret place of my soul I wanted to beg the Lord to reveal himself in power. I wanted to tell him that it was time for his coming. If there was anything at all to what he had promised, why didn’t he come in glory with angels and lay hands on the hurt children and awaken the dead soldiers and restore the burned villages and the blasted poisoned land?" - Wendell Berry, Jayber Crow
"Wouldn’t it have put fine comical expressions on the faces of the scribes and the chief priests and the soldiers if at that moment he had come down in power and glory? Why didn’t he do it? Why hasn’t he done it at any one of a thousand good times between then and now?...He didn’t, he hasn’t because from the moment he did, he would be the absolute tyrant of the world and we would be his slaves. Even those who hated him and hated one another and hated their own souls would have to believe in him then. From that moment the possibility that we might be bound to him and he to us and to one another by love forever would be ended."
- Wendell Berry, Jayber Crow
“Some people ask nowadays what kind of a religion it is that chooses an instrument of torture for its symbol, as if the cross on churches must represent some kind of endorsement. The answer is: one that takes the existence of suffering seriously.” - Francis Spufford
"Meek. Humble. Gentle. Jesus is not trigger-happy. Not harsh, reactionary, easily exasperated. He is the most understanding person in the universe. The posture most natural to him is not a pointed finger but open arms."
- Dane Ortlund, Gentle & Lowly
