Unexpected Effects

The domino effect shows us how one action can spread to have tremendous impact. Jesus said that he would be "lifted up" in death, and the effects of that action are truly cosmic in scope. Through his shameful death, Jesus is glorified, the Father is glorified, Jesus' followers from all over the world are honored, and the ruler of this world is cast out. Glory shines through judgment. Join us this Lord's Day to see Jesus high and lifted up.
