St. John's Franklin Podcast

Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled “God's No, God's Yes in Jesus” based on Mark 8:31-9:9 on February 18, 2012. At the heart of the Christian faith is the paradigm of Cross and Resurrection. God’s No in Jesus—the ascetic dimension to the Christian life—trains us in self-denial, in learning to say no to our appetites, impulses, whims, and desires, and makes room for Father, Son, and Spirit. In God’s Yes in Jesus—the aesthetic dimension to the Christian life—God reveals His glory, His beauty to us.
