How has Christ brought Peace when we look out upon a world filled with Chaos? That’s the question we struggle with today. We find that Peace exists not in the absence of surrounding danger, or turmoil, but in the presence of God’s reign reflected in the hearts & actions of his people.

Elizabeth’s greeting of Mary illustrates the delight of the expectant heart in Christ’s appearing. It is a greeting of Hope. Hope which we expect in the coming of Christ as Advent begins! Expectation feeds hope. Hope births gratitude. And Hope pays off!

We wrap up this series by looking at our need & ability to take captive every thought to Christ which is not reflective of himself. Instead of just ‘letting life happen’, we need to think about how we think, and live instead by faith as we submit ourselves to Jesus. A faith which holds onto the substantial reality of Christ & the conviction of his transforming power in us.

We all have an internal mental image of God. But what we say we believe isn’t really what drives us, this internal image does formed maybe partly from Scripture but largely our life experiences. In past weeks we’ve seen, our image of God dictates our response to Him & defines our own self-image. This week we answer the question, how does all this relate us with others? This sermon is entitled, Clever Disguises, because the Lord wears clever disguises in life.

Last week we looked at our image of God which needs to come into alignment with the true image of God from the Scriptures. This week we look at how that image influences our image of self as we seek to understand how God continually forms us into the likeness of Christ.

We continue our discussion of spiritual formation through the contemplation of Jesus in His Word. Using our imagination to engage with the Spirit of God tethering ourselves well to Scripture.

How are we transformed into the likeness of Christ? Try harder? Wait on God? Get more information? Or can we use our imagination to enter into Christ’s presence, meditating on Scriptural Truth, and BE transformed in the process?
