There were several provocative thoughts from Rustins teaching from the sermon on the mount at Vox Dei Community this morning. 

– When the Bible says that “Jesus is Lord”, that means that “Jesus is Lord…our security is not”.  Convicting when I read through Luke 6 and realize a lot of my life is lived in the pursuit of security, happiness, and comfortableness.

– The language the scriptures uses when it says “the Kingdom of God” speaks to this Kingdom being not so much a cause we must spread or a battle we must fight, but a gift we receive or a place we enter into.  Ahh….that’s grace and peace.
