Pathway Update 10/9

Author: Joel
October 09, 2015

This week, we will learn about God's gift of power. I will preach from Genesis 1 and Philippians 2. Here’s why we will hear an unusual message on the gift of power:

"Power corrupts"—as we’ve heard and seen time and time again. People too often abuse their power and play god in the lives of others. Shady politicians, corrupt executives and ego-filled media stars have made us suspicious of those who wield influence and authority. They too often breed injustice by participating in what the Bible calls idolatry. Yet power is also the means by which we bring life, create possibilities, offer hope and make human flourishing possible. This is “playing god” as it is meant to be. If we are to do God’s work—fight injustice, bring peace, create beauty and allow the image of God to thrive in those around us—how are we to do these things if not by power?
