Well, our Spring 2018 term has come and gone, and Easter weekend is nearly upon us. What a great three months! Just think about what we've covered:
When we return on Sun 22nd April, we'll be jumping into Summer 2018 term. Its catch-all title? "A Kingdom People of Word & Spirit." We'll be studying some amazing subjects: the ascension of Christ, the Kingdom of God, pneumatology (our theology of the Holy Spirit), our doctrine of Scripture, ecclesiology (our theology of the Church), as well as Baptism and Eucharist.
This coming summer will mark the 'beginning of the end' for our Foundations course. We'll meet again in September 2018 for three, final sessions, broadly titled "Until The End".
In the meantime, it's left for me to wish you a blessed Easter - get some rest, praise God for his goodness, and come back refreshed. God is taking us to exciting places!
We met last night to complete our five-part series on Soteriology - the doctrine/s of salvation! Having examined God's free choice to be a Saviour God, the power and work of Christ on the Cross, and then his victory over death - we turned to look at how the Triune God applies this work of redemption to us.
In short, it was all about how you came to know Jesus - just from God's perspective! His plan in all these things to is to glorify himself, to conquer the rebellion, and to dwell with a new humanity under new stars. To that end, he chooses us and unites us to himself in Christ, he recreates us by the Spirit after Christ's likeness, he puts us at peace with him through Christ's righteousness, he conforms us to Christ's image (making us priests of a kingdom), and when all is done he will raise us in Christ.
Then at last we will glorify him forever - a new humanity, under new stars, at peace with our God and with one another. He will be ours, and he will be all in all.
