God’s Glory Shared
The aim of this sermon series is to cover the big expanse of the Gospel from God sharing His glory by making us in His image; God’s passion, in spite of the fall, to restore us – the crown of His creation – to our former glory; doing this by giving up His glory through the incarnation, in order that, through Jesus’ death and resurrection, we might once again share His glory again.

|14th||2||The righteousness of God||Romans 3:21-26||Matthew 22:34-40|
|21st||3||Seeing what Jesus did||1 Peter 3:18||Philippians 2:1-11|

Jesus’ commission to his disciples is “Go and make disciples” (Matt 28:18-20). Our commission, as those who have been made disciples, is to “Go and make disciples”. If we are to fulfil this Biblical command we need to grasp the big picture of the story of God and us. These five weeks are about painting the big picture from the wide sweep of the Biblical text. The title, “God’s Glory Shared”, draws us to see that in creation the image of God in us was unmarred and that in the new creation that will also be true. Now we see the mess of sinful marred humanity. God in Jesus gave up all the glory of heaven in order to provide a way of salvation from the mess back to glory. The cross marks the hinge of history. Now there is a way back to God from the dark paths of sin.
