What Did Jesus Do? (The World Turned Upside Down)

What did Jesus do? He turned our world upside down by changing our understanding and expectations of God.

Who Can We Trust?

Jesus is lifted up whenever we turn to him, whenever we choose his ways over ours, whenever we trust one another enough to work together to help others, whenever we give up our agendas to follow his. 

What Do We Do?

What do we do? What would Jesus do? Love God and love one another.

What Would Jesus Really Do?

When Jesus flips the tables and clears the temple, this is Jesus restoring purity to a holy place, and this is also Jesus boldly standing up for the left out and the least, the outsiders and the poor who cannot afford to pay so much. This is Jesus getting angry about church leaders putting up obstacles between people and God.

Practicing Resurrection

How do we practice resurrection? By trusting deeply in the victory Jesus has won over sin and death, and holding on to the belief that evil does not last forever, and by holding on to hope even in the midst of seemingly hopeless situations.
