We Go Down to Go Up


“For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” (1 Corinthians 1:19)

“Lord, high and holy, meek and lowly, let me learn by paradox that the way down is the way up, that to be low is to be high, that the broken heart is the healed heart, that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit, that the repenting soul is the victorious soul, that to have nothing is to possess everything, that to bear the cross is to wear a crown, that to give is to receive. Let me find thy light in my darkness, thy grace in my sin, thy riches in my poverty, thy glory in my valley, thy life in my death.” (Arthur Bennett)

Strange isn’t it. We serve an upside down kingdom. But Christianity, the gospel of Jesus Christ is not just any religion, it is the truth. It is not a matter of opinion. It is a matter of truth.
