Carnation? Wait, isn’t that a flower? No, no, no. That’s not what we’re talking about today. Instead, we are taking a look at how the Incarnation of Christ should inform the way we live our lives with one another. What does it truly look like to live life with people and to know one another? That’s a question we have got to answer if we are going to live incarnationally. And, as we do this, we will see doors open that allow us to live intentionally with those God has placed around us.
03:24 — Who are your biggest preaching influences?
09:31 — We read in Matthew 12:22, “Then they brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see.” Are they saying the man was demon possessed because he was blind and mute? They seem linked in this passage.
11:25 — We read in Matthew 24:36, “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” How could the Son not know? We have Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—three in one. If the Father knows, wouldn’t the Son also know?
15:14 — What do we mean when we talk about the Incarnation of Christ?
16:00 — Outside of the Christmas season, what does the Incarnation of Christ really mean for us today?
17:08 — If God never changes, then how could He become man? In theological words, how can the incarnation be reconciled with God’s immutability?
19:17 — What does it mean to say that Jesus is the Word of God? I thought the Bible was the Word of God?
21:39 — What does that look like for us to live incarnationally?
23:24 — How do we step into someone else’s world, like Jesus stepped into ours?
26:24 — How do we learn to listen better to one another? What are some practical ways we can become better listeners?
