We begin a journey to explore how Jesus calls the Christ Self to receive Easter's invitation to rise into new life. Throughout this series we'll look at the nature of the false self, and provide a pattern for how spiritual formation happens.
The False Self appears early in the biblical narrative. We'll trace its exponential growth in the human experience from Genesis on, and how the eastward movement of the False Self is invited to return home to God's garden through the resurrection of Christ.
Join us as we continue our series "The Christ Self". As the Kingdom of God parades into a realm governed by the False Self, we experience both awakening and confrontation. This morning's passage is from 1 John 3.
"Through many small crucifixions, the life of Christ is born in us" (Adele Calhoun). These words set the tone for the next step in our journey into the Christ self identity. The Kingdom of Love is greater than the Kingdom of fear, but entering it involves a dying of life as we have known it. Our passages come from 1 John 4, and we see love's effect on fear.
