The Nonviolence of Jesus

When Jesus disarms Peter, he disarms all of us. Learn more on the 1208PODCAST. Check out this podcast episode on 1208GREENWOOD’s webpage or simply subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, Spotify, or Google Play.

And as a bonus, a good word and illustration from my brother Joel after preaching tonight:

Before I begin I should give the disclaimer that I don’t consider myself to be a great illustrator, but have found myself to have an affinity for the symbolic. I drew this a couple days ago to represent my friends who are always pursuing justice.

I’ve seen so many people who are chasing after the ring of justice. Many of these people I even agree with on their viewpoint. However, they’re often willing to destroy the opposing side through harsh words and ridicule. The end result is the person on the other side learning to love their viewpoint even more and remains to be a creature of the dark.

As Jamin said in message tonight “learn how to passionately fight for your cause without a sword in hand.” I by no means want you to stop chasing justice, I just encourage you to always do so in love.
