One of the greatest victims of our success, especially here in the western world, is our relationships. Most of us are cash rich and relationship poor. What’s more, our relentless pursuit of success creates “walls of hostility” between various people groups. When we squabble to put ourselves first, like the church at Corinth, we destroy community. The solution: let Jesus lead us into a new community with different values and a different vision; a community united in him.
In our world, some of the greatest icons of success would come from various companies like Amazon and Nike, various sports teams like The New York Yankees and the New England Patriot, various designer labels and the like. Paul names the greatest icon of success that he can think of in 1 Corinthians 1: the cross. Strange. How can you be “killing it”, when you are yourself killed? By rising from the dead; that’s how.
Killing It Is Killing Us
*Please note: Due to unforeseen circumstances only half the message is available to listen to.
We live in a world that worships success: success in business; physical success; artistic success; and the like. Everyone wants to be “killing it”; prevailing in whatever field they find themselves in. But what if “killing it” is killing us. What if there’s actually a different way to be human. A God ordained way. One that leads to life and life in abundance. The church at Corinth learned this. And, starting in 2019, so can we, as the community of The River.
