What holds you back in relation to Jesus? What’s got you stuck? Jesus is satisfied with nothing less than all of us. True blessing & life are found in His presence. Salvation is not a matter of morality & good works. Good works do not precede faith, faith precedes & produces good works. We look at all of this through the story of the Rich Young Ruler.

We find ourselves in a crazy world. How do we begin to fight the inferno of sin? Will it ever be extinguished? Yes, it will, but we don’t fight as the world would. It begins with fostering a heart of God leading to actions which reflect him as we await the fulfillment of his Kingdom. Of experiencing reconciliation with Jesus firstly, enabling us to be agents of reconciliation with others. We trust God, an do the work of the Kingdom as we await it’s ultimate full establishment!

Augustine was correct, God has made us for himself, and our hearts are restless until they find rest in Him. We’re secure in God’s Grace in Christ, but we can choose to wage war on our own souls by walking outside the standards (the Law) of God. We can clog the pipes of relationship with him not experiencing rest & life in our souls.

The soul’s formation is seen in how thoughts, feelings, social relations, bodily habits, behaviors, and choices unfold & interact with each other - revealing the overall character of a person - our window to the soul. A soul which is the foundation of who we are, and should draw life & meaning from the Soul of the Creator.
