The Advantage of the Disadvantaged

• Greg Boyd

In our world, we all strive to gain advantages to have a better life. However, the truth of the Kingdom is captured in the story of a crippled lamb. Greg shows us how, in the Kingdom, having advantages can be a disadvantage, and having a disadvantage can be an advantage.

Focus Scripture:

  • Luke 1:46-55

    And Mary said:

    “My soul glorifies the Lord
    and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
    for he has been mindful
    of the humble state of his servant.
    From now on all generations will call me blessed,
    for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
    holy is his name.
    His mercy extends to those who fear him,
    from generation to generation.
    He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
    he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
    He has brought down rulers from their thrones
    but has lifted up the humble.
    He has filled the hungry with good things
    but has sent the rich away empty.
    He has helped his servant Israel,
    remembering to be merciful
    to Abraham and his descendants forever,
    just as he promised our ancestors.”

    This was a BEAUTIFUL Christmas message that we thoroughly enjoyed! We are transitioning to WH from another church and are 7 & 8 year old are a little nervous about it. They love The Crippled Lamb so that was a great start! The part in the message where Greg was saying to surrender everything to Christ, my 7 year old son whispered “no way am I surrendering all my toys”. I whispered back, that’s not what he means. Then he said “OK, OK, I get it, give my heart to God” So it was nice to know he was listening! In an ever so crazy “game playing” world where my kids friends have a Play Station, Wii and DS, $400 Lego sets vs. $20-$40 Lego sets, $400 bikes vs. a $60 bike, etc. it’s a non stop work in progress to teach them what’s really important in life, then hope and pray they understand. When you see glimpses they do, it warms your heart.

    This message is one of the reasons Greg Boyd remains one of my favorite preachers!

"I have found, in you, a place where the preached word profoundly resonates with my own recent journey of faith and has cemented a new way of thinking, I suppose like jigsaw pieces falling into place. I am grateful that a friend pointed me in your direction."
