Jesus wants to save christians

This morning I finished listening to the first sermon in Rob Bell's series entitled "Jesus Wants to Save Christians." I found myself as I was driving saying Amen from time to time, and feeling like I was listening to someone affirm the beliefs that I have had for quite some time.

The overarching story of it all is that Jesus was acting as the new Moses in bringing the Israelites out of Egypt. Whatever Egypt may mean, wherever exile is, Jesus brings those that believe in the God of Israel out of it.

Some of the major points he hits on and will continue to hit on in the series are that we as Christians are not called to be the moral police in society, Jesus didn't condemn those who weren't Israelites, but was definitely reactionary to those who claimed to know God. Jesus was calling those who believed in the God of Israel to act like it. It is, in Rob Bell's opinion, the biggest mistake we can make is if we claim to believe and don't do anything about it. Jesus preached heavily on the kingdom being now, and we are the ones who usher in the kingdom.

In any case, I didn't take notes and I'm afraid I won't do this whole sermon series justice, but I do plan on doing a little bit on each one. But I would encourage you to listen to this series which you can find here.

I'll also be posting soon about some more Nooma videos so be looking forward to that.
