Honoring Christ In Photography-Day 2

After his death and resurrection, Jesus reconnects with the disciples. Even after the fact, they still didn’t understand his purposes. Still caught in the lie that the Messiah would not suffer, they held fast to their conviction that Jesus would reign as a political King over Israel. The disciples, and everyone else, completely misinterpreted the Messiah as portrayed in the Old Testament. They missed that he would first become a...

Honoring Christ In Photography-Day 1

Photo of the Father We all take photos, but I don’t think any of us really think about the truth behind what we’re actually doing. Hebrews 1b-3a can help us here: God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he...

Honoring Christ In Our Work-Day 3

Jesus’ Work in Culture Earlier we discussed Jesus as our “minister” in Hebrews 8:2. Ironically and curiously, the same word used for Jesus’ work in Hebrews is used in Romans 13:4 by Paul in referring to the secular and evil authorities of our world.  The point?  Even those in worldly cultural leadership have been granted some authority by God to work their rhythms, liturgies (forms), shapes, and ideas into the...

Honoring Christ In Our Work-Day 2

Jesus’ Work in the Church The Bible uses so many different metaphors to describe the church. The Bible says the church is body, many but one, and connected to Christ as our “Head.” Like a temple we are built up. Like a bride we are married to Christ our Beloved. The church is pure like a virgin,[ and yet unified as if in the same way sex unifies man and wife as one flesh. We are likened to a family,  citizens of a...

Honoring Christ In Our Work-Day 1

Jesus’ work in the Cosmos In Hebrews 8:2 the writer says this about Jesus; “We have such a high priest, one who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, a minister [λειτουργὸς-leitourgos] in the holy places, in the true tent that the Lord set up, not man.” Jesus here is called a minister, or servant. In the Greek, this is the word leitourgos. It is derived from leitos, “belonging to the...

Honoring Christ In Improv, Acting, And Presenting Scripture-Day 1

Over at MakeJesusCulture.com we had Eric Epperson talking about the Improvisational God. He took a good chunk of time at the start to specify what we do not mean: we don’t mean that God changes, for there is no shadow in him due to change and Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. So when we say that God’s improvisational, we don’t mean that he’s making it up as he goes along. What we do mean is that there’s a series...
