PEACE WITH GOD SERIES
Tradition + Tribe
Matthew 9:3, Luke 19:45-48, Matthew 12:6, Romans 14:16-18
We build online and physical temples searching for purpose and meaning out of our lives; social media, gyms, music, celebrities, art galleries, food, shopping, porn sites, or sports among other things can become religious to us. But what if we build on land not found on a map, with a leader in no need of governmental buildings? How can this way of living bring us the life we try so hard to secure?
This Sunday, Jesus crashes through the walls we build that keep us from encountering God. Become a dual citizen and a living temple!
