Scars


Pastor Joel kicked off our "Scars" series this past weekend, and he did an incredible job of framing the series and focusing us on the cross.

We are heading into a Big Idea creative/teaching team meeting to talk about the remaining topics. Here's my question, if we were to talk about relational scars, which story would you pick?
  • Ananias and Paul
  • Saul and David
  • Other____________

I vote Saul and David. "A Tale of Three Kings," by Gene Edwards. Incredible... Don't read his other stuff, though.

Absalom and David...just tweeted this as well :-)

Definitely David. I mean in his life alone you have 1) Saul, 2) Jonathan, 3) Michal, 4) Ahimelech/Doeg, 5) Nabal/Abigail, 6) Tamar/Amnon/Absalom. And he was the youngest son (and I'm sure I'm still missing even more relational brokenness issues in David's life).

Like the multiple options surrounding David but the first pairing that popped into my mind was Paul and Barnabas, specifically in regards to their history with John Mark (Acts 15). Just one example of how scars, and likely the deepest ones, can originate with those closest to you.

Jesus & Peter; Jesus & John. Do you think that the rest of the disciples may have been jealous or envious of the relationship that Jesus & John had. After all, John refers to himself as "the disciple whom Jesus loved" four times:
John 13:23; 20:2; 21:7; 21:20.

Not as well known, but Hosea and Gomer is a great Biblical love story...and powerful picture of God's grace and love for us.
