The Economy and True Humanity
Here’s an excerpt from last Sunday’s sermon which addressed our economy, idolatry of information, and the plan of God in Christ for making people truly human:
Paul knows that we will drift towards finding our significance in what we know, not who we know. He knows that we will participate unwisely in culture, taking on its values, unless we have a greater strength and power, the strength and power of the Spirit of God. And what about our economy? What if we hit a depression and knowledge work becomes scarce? God promises the power and strength to endure any crisis. What if our discretionary income declines? We are promised strength and power to endure with joy. Why with joy? Because we know and obey the God who has the power and commitment to renew and restore the whole world. And because this God has used the power of his glory to rescue us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son.
