Re-reading a part in Mark Driscoll’s book: Confessions of a Reformission Rev.: Hard Lessons from an Emerging Missional Church that really struck me in regards to Christology. He highlights that church tend to focus on one aspect of the character of Christ.

• He states that in mainline liberal churches, presented marginalized Galilean peasant.
• In the more mainstream evangelical churches, Jesus was presented as a buddy Christ

The danger being that we focus on one at the cost of the other. Jesus was the suffering servant who ate with sinners and was crucified, but he is also the risen victorious King of Kings who will judge the living and the dead.

How do we get this balance is our church and ministry? How do we reflect the incarnational and the victorious…?
