#ec1dot36- Morality and the Substitute
Why do we act the way that we do? Is it because we are trying to get a reaction from someone else or is it because we are trying to avoid a reaction from someone else. Probably a little bit of both.
The Bible is often referred to as a book on moral and ethical codes that humans must follow in order to get or avoid the type of reactions we expect from others.
But if this was all it was, then why would it center around the substitutionary death of Jesus?
In today’s episode, we discuss our actions and our Savior. Welcome to Another Empty Conversation!
I think the irony of this episode is that we planned to talk about self-control and serving others and we went directly off course and talked about Jesus’ substitutionary death. On the surface it seems like we failed at having self-control!
But this is the nature of conversations. When you get together with friends, open up about your faith and reveal your vulnerabilities then you eventually wind up in a better place than where you intended to go in the first place.
So next week we wrap up our series on What it means to be a Christian - of course that doesn’t mean that we will ever stop talking about what it means to be a Christian because the idea of talking faith means we are alway talking about what it means to be a Christian. The 6 days between Sundays can’t be seen as a time let your focus slip away from Jesus.
