    Stewarding the Supernatural part 2

    Stewarding the Supernatural part 2

    What does it mean for us to live under an Open Heaven? What does it look like for us to be spirit-filled followers living spirt-filled lives? The early church operated in the spirit as a means of advancing the Kingdom of God, and as our guest speakers shared on Sunday, the same can be said of the church today. Healings, prophesies and radical salvations can be part of modern day testimonies, and we would like to see more! Listen back to this week's two part podcast from Sarah and Chloe Richards on how to steward the supernatural.

    Stewarding the Earth

    Stewarding the Earth

    In an age when the negative impacts of climate change are making headline news, the desire to do something can feel irresistible, yet overwhelming. For a long time images of creation being destroyed tugged at the heart strings, but resulted in no immediate action. But now more and more people are waking up to the reality that this is God's world, His creation, and we don't have long left to protect it. This week Caroline delves into the question 'What does God have to say about non-human creation?', and challenges us to think about what it could look like for Christians to partner with God in the stewardship of His creation.

    Being Stewards

    Being Stewards

    The lens through which Jesus saw the world meant that everything He saw, had and knew belonged to Father God. Jesus lived in a way that meant He managed everything He had at His disposal to its full potential, for the purpose of God’s mission to be accomplished. Jesus was our perfect example of how to steward. At Open Heaven we have a discipleship culture, meaning every area of our lives is open to Jesus being in charge of it. As followers of Jesus, we seek to imitate His ways in all areas of our lives, including the way we steward.

    The Paradoxes of God

    The Paradoxes of God

    Anything that makes us work hard to understand God can ultimately lead us to greater revelation. The same can be said of difficult passages in the Bible. After the victories and celebrations that occur throughout the book of Esther, it can be hard to make sense of the story's final chapters. The huge reversal in the narrative throws up questions that are difficult to wrestle with. Is God just? Are we in charge of our own destinies? In the same way Jacob wrestled with God in the book of Genesis, we too must wrestle with the darker passages of scripture.

    The Violence of Kings

    The Violence of Kings

    The book of Esther is in some ways a book of contrasting dualities; the fall of the Jews, the rise of the Jews; the grace of God, the violence of kings. Without unworthiness, without entitlement, Esther approaches King Xerxes once again in an attempt to overthrow the genocide decree which would wipe out her people. As we near the end of the narrative we see that the King’s decision still ends in bloodshed and war. How do we make sense of these difficult passages in the Bible? In an instant age, we must take our time to contemplate scripture, to examine biblical characters and their decisions and to ask God – does this please your heart, or does this grieve your heart?
