Scriptures: 1 John 4:7-21 and Colossians 3:1-17
Sermon Series: Reboot! JP21
The idea behind JP21 is to cultivate what Paul calls the Mind of Christ within us, the metanoic bigger mind that Jesus and John the Baptist call us to. This mind doesn’t appear magically within us. It requires our cooperation with the Holy Spirit at work with us, what Paul calls the renewing of our minds. We engage in the work of disentangling from the dysfunctional and destructive systems of the world, such as racism, because the commandment and gift of love — divinely imparted and cultivated — requires it. Love is demonstrated and manifested in concrete acts, and in specific public policies being enacted as well. Our love must be demonstrated not only for one another, but also love for those Jesus loved.
