Manna and Mercy

Video Clip

43. Journey Through Acts - V

Summary: In order to live manna and mercy lives, we need a new identity, a new sense of all of humanity being one family. If we’re to end the violence in this world, we need to understand that God is the parent of both the murdered and the murderer. When we take a life, it is taking the life of a sister or brother. We learn this from Jesus, who chose not to take life, but instead taught us that the one who kills is really the one who is dead, and the one who loves is the one who is fully alive.  Offer a challenge right now to your own loved ones: that if you were to die due to a violent act, your loved ones would promise not to use your death to call for the death of another, but instead would welcome the violator into the family and bring them back to life again.
