Could it be that God is using this time to draw us closer to Himself? In the coming weeks, we'll be exploring some spiritual practices that can help you to flourish in your relationship with God.

  • Kingdom Tension - Unique  United

    Kingdom Tension - Unique & United

    02/02/2020 Duración: 31min

    Ever heard of the Dutch word “eenheidsworst”? Literally translated, this would be sausage-unity. It’s a type of unity where you have to lose your uniqueness in. This is not the type of unity the Bible calls us to. In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul compares the church to a body, where all the unique parts contribute in a uniquely valuable way to form a well-functioning unity. In this message, I want to talk about a tension we may experience sometimes in a church. It is a tension of uniqueness and unity. God has created all of us uniquely – with our own personality, strengths, weaknesses and some of us with a special manual. God has also created us to live intimately connected to others.
