REPENT. It's one of those words you hear most often from wacko Christians on busy corners in the city, yelling to "REPENT!". It's a word that can make you cringe. But at the heart of this word, is something beautiful.

Tim finishes our 2 Corinthians series, unpacking how God is ready and willing to forgive you, and encourages us all to "chuck a U-ie", and repent. Find out more about St John's at https://stjohnsdc.org.au

If you aren't a follower of Jesus right now, this reading might suggest you're "wicked", "in darkness", "unclean" and "contaminated". Rest assured - we don't think that! Find out what this part of the bible is talking about with Kirk.

If you've been investigating Jesus and Christianity but find the behaviour of Christians a stumbling block, look more closely at Jesus. The only criteria of being a Christian is to admit that we've stuffed up, and aren't perfect people. We are called to be like Jesus, but will always struggle to do so.

Paul, the writer of 2 Corinthians, seeks to not be a stumbling block for others. Through all kinds of struggles and hard times, Paul says to show ourselves as servants of God, showing our hope in Jesus by the love that we show in our lives.

This weeks service hit a couple of technical issues, so you'll notice the video stuttering. Sorry!

Paul writes to the church in Corinth to not take the grace of God for granted. He uses plain language, without flowery language or big words to show the gospel plainly: "God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." Jesus was blameless, but was given the blame for us. God wants to be friends with us, in constant relationship. All of us at some stage though, have turned our back on God.

Julie continues our God Through 2 Corinthians series.
