The Jesus of Politics

May 19, 2019 |

Scripture: Philippians 2:5-11 | Series:

The new political order brought about by Jesus is entered not through revolution, community organizing or elections but by conversion. It’s when we are united with Christ, sharing his mind, that we live according to his way and recognize his lordship. That way is in deep tension with the American way - he died for us instead of pursuing his own life, became a slave for us instead of pursuing his own liberty and refused to use his status as God for his own happiness.
