balance….

….in the pattern of Christian discipleship, was my assigned preaching topic yesterday!
It’s something I find far from resolved in my life……but I really found myself being ambushed by God in John 8:12-30. A far from easy passage, yet full of the imprint of Jesus for a life of simplicity, confidence and adventure! 

Alongside the words of yesterday, here are the notes from my talk and the accompanying powerpoint slides.

Between identity and transformation in the pattern of Jesus, is all our confidence and hope. That transformation comes in our trusting….and that never comes easily!

Here’s hoping this input, helps if only in a little way……
