TOPIC INDEXJesus Christ (15)
  1. He also took our own history and suffered all the agony and pain of our own lives.
  2. Jesus meets us in our life of lies, in our falsehoods, in the untruth of our being, and in the company, we create to cover up our nakedness.
  3. The title “peacemakers” is not ours except as we tell and retell his peacemaking story.
  4. We are not saved by the success of our refining process. We are saved precisely because our impurities, no matter what the percentage, ruin the whole thing.
  5. Blessed are we, for we are filled by the cornucopia of Christ’s righteousness.
  6. The only one rightful heir of the kingdom of God, inherits from us, our cross, and descends into the kingdom of the damned.
  7. The giver of life, the source of joy, stands weeping together with the human family as they grieve under the curse of sin.
  8. “Poverty of spirit” is not an ethical value we strive for. It is an act of God’s mercy spoken to the deepest recesses of our soul when it’s overwhelmed by God’s grace.
  9. The only one truly blessed of God, who in himself is God’s incarnate makarios, surrounds himself with a multitude of the accursed, the non-makarios.
  10. The petition not to be led into temptation is found in just the right place within the seven petitions.
  11. In both Psalms, we hear the Messiah becoming sin for us, and thus he pleads on our behalf before the Father
  12. He is not ashamed to call us brothers and sisters, even as we curse and yell at him for not pleasing us with our pettish wishes.
