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.

A Very Loving Father and His Two Imperfect Sons – Kim Becker

By looking at the parable of the prodigal son, Kim shows that the kingdom of God is not structured around boundary lines that designate who’s in and who’s out. Instead, the kingdom is centered on Christ, and individuals are to be oriented not toward boundary lines, but toward Jesus. As these false boundary lines are erased, loving relationships can be experienced by individuals who may not have the same beliefs or lifestyle. This love is
reflective of God’s generous and forgiving nature portrayed in the parable through the father’s love for his two imperfect sons.
