Jubilee Sermon Series: Shalom
About Jubilee Sermon Series: Shalom:
When God placed Adam and Eve in the garden, his goal for humanity was to have mankind offer his work in service to others as service to God. Our individual work matters. But, Adam alone in a garden would not make a city. Instead, it was God’s intention in the beginning to interweave His work with ours so that the world would flourish. The biblical word we use to describe this reality is shalom or peace. And, rather than “peace” being a word of resigned tolerance, biblical peace connotes God’s ideal for how we steward our combined work as creatures made in his image. The parable of the sheep and the goats contrasts how our work will be judged by Jesus as either work done in service to others as service unto God or our work done in service unto ourselves.
This week's film will unravel the intricate beauty of how God’s plan for the world can be seen in a couple making a simple sandwich as work done in service to others as service unto God. View the video here: https://vimeo.com/145462840
