Title: Forgiveness
Scripture: Luke 7:36-50
Speaker: Nathan Miller,
"[Shame] is the primary tool that evil leverages, out of which emerges everything that we would call sin. As such, it is actively, intentionally, at work both with and between individuals. Its goal is to disintegrate any and every system it targets, be that one’s personal story, a family, marriage, friendship, church, school, community, business or political system. It’s power lies in its subtlety and its silence, and it will not be satisfied until all hell breaks loose. Literally." - Curt Thompson, The Soul of Shame
“To be human is to be infected…” - Curt Thompson
>> Jesus is the kind of person shamed people feel free to come to.
“Perhaps it is no wonder that the women were first at the Cradle and last at the Cross. They had never known a man like this Man - there never has been such another. A prophet and teacher who never nagged at them, never flattered or coaxed or patronized; who never made...jokes about them, never treated them either as "The women, God help us!" or "The ladies, God bless them!"; who rebuked without querulousness and praised without condescension; who took their questions and arguments seriously; who never mapped out their sphere for them, never urged them to be feminine or jeered at them for being female; who had no axe to grind and no uneasy male dignity to defend; who took them as he found them and was completely unself-conscious.” - Dorothy Sayers
>> Jesus alone can turn our brokenness into an asset
>> Jesus wants to trade His peace for your shame
>> How do we respond to an offer like that?
- Receive it
- Extend it
- Celebrate it
