Vision For The Mind: God’s Yes and Our Amen
In today’s 3min clip on Vision for the Mind, Byron Chicken explores God’s yes and our Amen spoken of in 2 Corinthians 1:18-21
18 but as surely as god is faithful, our message to you is not “yes” and “no.” 19 for the son of god, Jesus christ, who was preached among you by us—by me and Silas and Timothy—was not “yes” and “no,” but in him it has always been “yes.” 20 for no matter how many promises god has made, they are “yes” in christ. And so through him the “amen” is spoken by us to the glory of god. 21 now it is god who makes both us and you stand firm in christ.
Some key points during the clip:
It takes two things for the sound of God’s promises to come alive in our lives and in our church’s lives: God’s yes and our amen. The amen is out part, it is our whole-hearted response to God in thought, word and deed.
We must be sure to ask ourselves: what are the filters between God’s yes and our amen?
