Flip the Script
One of the favorite expressions of some of the first proclaimers of the gospel of Jesus Christ was the simple phrase but now. In the earliest days of the Jesus movement, men and women did not abandon their former ways of living and thinking because they were provided religious direction or spiritual insight. People became followers of Jesus because of the explosive good news that they heard and experienced firsthand – their newfound faith hinged on the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
And this radical new life was embodied in those two minimal but revolutionary words: “But Now.” They are the same two words that define the “before” and “after” reality of what it means to follow Jesus Christ.
Join us at City Church April 14th – May 12th as we explore some of the pivotal “but now” writings of the earliest followers of Jesus and learn what it means for our everyday lives and eternity when God flips the script.
