Covenant Life – Josias Hansen

Faith, just like life, was never meant to be experienced alone. We need one another for encouragement and accountability. Yet, for many Christians today, personal encouragement and accountability is easily lost. Within the Kingdom, we are brought into a covenant family where we invite one another to lovingly challenge and encourage us to remain faithful to our covenant and to Jesus’ kingdom way of life.

Sharing and Stewardship – Josias Hansen

As kingdom people, we are not to see our time and resources as our own to be spent on anything we please. Instead, we believe everything belongs to God, and we are called to be faithful stewards of everything at our disposal. Therefore, instead of using our time and resources to build our own individual kingdoms, God calls us to seek the benefit of God’s kingdom first, trusting that our own needs will also be met in the process.

Fiery Furnace – Josias Hansen

The story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego has inspired countless martyrs to remain faithful to their convictions in the face of horrific persecution. Yet, the faithfulness of God must be seen as the central focus in this story. We can remain faithful, because we know that God will remain faithful to us through it all.

Father, Forgive Them – Josias Hansen

Josias expounds on Jesus’ powerful prayer from the cross for God to forgive those who abandoned, shamed, and tortured him. Within this short prayer, we can see the heart of God as being other-oriented, self-sacrificial, and enemy-loving. Furthermore, we discover that one of the most important dimensions of the atonement is that Jesus took on our sin and freed us from the kingdom of darkness which enslaves us to sin.

Parables and Soils – Josias Hansen

Freedom – Josias Hansen

For our third Sunday of Advent, Josias digs into the freedom the Israelites were craving from their national oppressors. They waited for the Messiah to come and triumph over all their nationalistic oppressors, but instead, Jesus provided the true freedom from their ultimate oppressor and broke their chains of sin and death through his life, death and resurrection. As we hunger for this true freedom, we can now experience Christ’s freedom in becoming the people God created us to be.

Ask Seek Knock – Josias Hansen

When Jesus teaches that we are to ask, seek, and knock, he is not talking about getting material possessions from God. He’s talking about the kingdom. If we want God’s kingdom, God is ready to give it. He won’t trick us, nor force feed it to us, but his desire is that we receive it, find it and enter it.
