Formed - The cross in a culture of self
Philippians 2 : 1 - 18
Jesus offers us a stark choice, deny yourself, pour yourself out and you'll find true life, or grasp for a life of self, gain the whole world but lose yourself. When we know Jesus is the true treasure, to sacrifice everything for him is no loss.

The Big Story Of God's Presence Part 2
Howard reminds us that Jesus has come to bring us to be with him where he is "in the embrace of his father". Jesus took on flesh and lived on earth but at the same time was in the embrace of his father, as his followers we are to live in the overlap of heaven and earth.
