Learning to say hallelujah, Redeemer Theological Academy
Christ is risen! He is read indeed! Alleluia! Or is it Hallelujah? Whether there is an “H” or an “A,” the key is to proclaim the works of the LORD. Specifically, we take great comfort in knowing that Christ has been put to death for our transgression and raised to life for our justification. In this great act of salvation we rejoice!
Series A, The Day of Pentecost, Worth Doing Badly
Numbers 11:24–30; Psalm 25:1–15; Acts 2:1–21; John 7:37–39 The truth of faith rolls out slowly as it takes hold by in-forming and in-structuring the human soul. The Spirit works from the inside out, so that His work is neither recognised nor appreciated by those who are overly impressed by the outward things that can be managed, monetised and manipulated. The Spirit’s moves freely like the wind, which cannot be controlled. This is the freedom the Spirit imparts to us by in-forming and in-structuring us in the truth that hydrates our souls, freeing us from the tyrannical demands of our selfish ego.
