I spoke about the Exodus from Egypt, and its significance in Judaism last week. In addition, I touched on the concept of The New Exodus, a messianic expectation we see fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ.
This was with a view to highlight that:
- God is self-revealing,
- God works in history through human agents to bring about his kingdom,
- creation is not a one-off process or event that was completed in Genesis, but rather, one that remains constant.
As God Bearers it is important that we note that God’s purpose does not exempt us from the forces of Resistance.
In our efforts towards continuation of creation, through advocating the Good News, and delivery of Social Justice initiatives here on earth, we will encounter all forms of Resistance.
As a proof text, the Psalmist notes, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord rescues them from them all.” – Ps. 34:19
Therefore, this Sunday I will home-in on some case studies, with a view to draw ideas, and wisdom to help us overcome resistance in whatever shape or form it manifests itself.
Join us as we explore Internal Resistance
