How can we turn around after experiencing such adoption through Christ and tolerate any kind of prejudice, sense of superiority, or exclusiveness either in our lives or in the fellowship of our church?

Through Jesus, we experience true cleansing.

Just like Jesus made Peter a new person, he offers to make us a new person. It's not us fixing ourselves but rather about Jesus fixing us.

John the Baptizer understood that the reason God had him on this earth was to make Jesus famous. And that’s why we’re on earth as well.

If Jesus wasn’t truly God in the flesh, then the blood he shed on the cross would not be sufficient to pay for our sins.

The reason God is not what you think is because he's holy. What does it mean to say that God is holy? Well, it can mean two things. Probably the more familiar meaning is that God’s pure, righteous, the sum of all moral perfection, and not tainted in the least by sin. But there’s also another meaning, a more foundational meaning. To say that God is holy means that there’s no one like him.

God’s justice is a good thing. It’s a quality of God that’s inextricably bound up with his goodness. It’s not a blemish on God’s character or something we need to mask or hide in an effort to make God more acceptable to people.

God’s deeds reveal what he’s like much more powerfully than anything else.

Do you know why trials so often cause us such a high level of anxiety? Do you know why we often feel so overwhelmed by them, perhaps even on a regular basis? Almost without exception, it’s because our picture of God is too small.

You can’t really be all about Jesus if you’re not all about his church.
