Audacious Optimism

Bible Text: 1 Thessalonians 5 | | May 28, 2023

What would it take for you to engage your faith? To actually have to use your faith, rather than just your gifts, common sense, intelligence... What would get you moving in the power of the Spirit, not by sight but by faith? Somewhere beneath the messages of this series on The Art of Holiness, these questions have been lurking. Just how far can your faith take you? This week, we close this series with one more thought about Christian perfection, which Kevin Watson defines as "Methodism’s audacious optimism that the grace of God saves us entirely.” It is not only an optimistic claim, but a joyful inheritance. I look forward to rejoicing in God's most optimistic gift with you this Sunday!
