History's Most Scandalous Dinner Party
Did Jesus actually claim to be God? It’s one of the most common questions you’ll hear from a skeptic. And today on Discover the Word, we’re concluding a weeklong study titled,“Scandals”, with a look at one of Jesus’s most audacious claims. Tune in for this encouraging discussion about the divine, scandalous grace of Jesus, today on Discover the Word!
Take a coin. Toss it in the air. Now call it. Heads? Tails? What if you could choose both sides?Elisa Morgan birthed the “prayer coin” idea as she was struggling in her own prayer life. Should she be blatantly honest about her desires or just leave everything to God and let Him lead? An epiphany came when Elisa noticed how Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane: “Take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done” (Luke 22:42). Jesus Christ begged for relief from the trial He faced, while utterly complying with what He knew the Father’s will to be. Honesty and abandon—in the same breath.Elisa discovered that Jesus invites us to both. And the emotional back-and-forth, between full-out honesty and "giving it up" in abandon, actually drew her closer to God.If Jesus—our Savior, Mentor, and Friend—could pray both sides of the prayer coin, could we as well?The Prayer Coin is also available as a 6-lesson companion, The Prayer CoinDVD.
