Paradoxes of the Christian Life

Paradoxes of the Christian Life

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: Paradoxes of the Christian Life

Category: Sunday Sermons

Keywords: discipleship, work, paradox

Labor Day is a funny holiday in that we celebrate work and workers by taking a day off! This may not qualify as a complete paradox, but it does offer a simple connecting point to looking at some of the paradoxes that make the Christian life peculiar. The Bible tells us that God's ways are not our ways, and sometimes living the Christian life can seem very counter-intuitive. But the history of our faith and, often times, experiences in our own lives show that these characteristics of discipleship really are true.
