What is Eternal Life

In this sermon, part of our ‘Love Wins: Celebrating the Resurrection’ series at St Paul’s Shadwell, I look at the meaning of eternal life. I argue that eternal life is not the end of the world or going to heaven when we die, instead it is union with Christ and participation in his divine humanity. This union with Christ works itself out in a life of love for God and for one another through which we become increasingly transparent to the glory of God. Jesus calls us to abide in him. This is what the life of a disciple is all about.

What’s Your Problem?

In this sermon at the beginning of Holy Week we anticipate the cross as Luke laments over Jerusalem even as the crowds sing Hosanna. They believe he is the one who will drive out the Romans for them. Jesus understood their problem wasn’t the Romans, it was their own hearts. Only the cross is the shock therapy we need to open our eyes to the real problem. Only the cross is the antidote to the real infection we all suffer from.
