God For The Rest Of Us

2,000 years ago people thought God was for the Pharisees. The Pharisees were the religious people who claimed moral superiority. Then Jesus showed up. And everything changed. Jesus claimed to be God, in the flesh, but He hung out with irreligious people who everyone thought to be morally inferior. Jesus was called a “friend of sinners” because He spent time with prostitutes and tax collectors and Roman soldiers. And people began to realize that God wasn’t just for the Pharisees, that God was for the rest of us.

Today, somehow people still believe that God is for the religious people who claim moral superiority.  But they’re wrong. God is still for the rest of us.

And I am psyched for the series we’re starting at Verve this weekend: God For The Rest Of Us. We’ll be talking about God’s life-transforming unconditional love and amazing grace for normal, sinful people like me, and you.

If you’re here in Vegas, don’t miss it. And if you live outside Vegas, we start online services this Tuesday night so you can check it out as well.
