    True Liberty
    In Leviticus, God instructs the Israelites to proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. as Christians today, we have the responsibility to also proclaim liberty throughout our land. But the liberty we proclaim is the one and only liberty given by our God to all humanity through love.

    Elisha is dedicated to Elijah’s prophetic ministry and does not want to see Elijah go away. So he clings to him. He clings to Elijah on the journey to Bethel, even though Elijah advises him to “stay here.” Elisha again clings to Elijah—this time more boldly—as they journey to the Jordan, despite Elijah’s command to “stay here.”

    The Inheritabnce of God Worshuip Series: THE INHERITANCE OF ATTENTIVENESS
    The prophet Elijah was a great risk-taking communicator, speaking God’s truth to power. In the previous chapter, he had declared the God of Israel’s superiority over the prophets of Baal, which resulted in the killing of these prophets. This sets us up for today’s scene, where Jezebel promises to exact revenge upon Elijah.

    Loving Worship Series: EMBODIED
    In chapter 17 in the gospel of John, we have a plea for Jesus’ followers to become one. It is a poetic prayer that is simultaneously beautiful and repetitive, as we would expect to find in the Gospel of John. We get a glimpse into Jesus’ heart and longing for the believing community, which is another opportunity to try to grasp how Jesus understands unity.

    Loving Worship Series: SENT
    As disciples, we are all sent into the world to live out the love we have experienced. Embracing the reality that we are all “sent” in some way helps us keep perspective when are tempted to let our hearts be troubled or when we are tempted to give in to fear. There is intentionality in our efforts to keep God’s commandments.

    Loving Worship Series: MARKED
    This passage begins a collection of passages known as the Farewell Discourse. Jesus is preparing the disciples for a life without his physical presence. More than offering comfort, Jesus is trying to reorient them toward their mission.
