    Our salvation in Christ not only delivers us from damnation, it sets us free to live our lives and make our choices under the limitless canopy of God's amazing grace. The Christian has been given a spiritual "bill of rights" befitting of those who are children of God and joint-heirs with Jesus. But our "rights" can become "wrongs" if we carelessly offend others

Dorothy Sayers, a close friend of the great C.S. Lewis, once said:
 
 "The incarnation is the most dramatic thing about Christianity; and indeed, the most dramatic thing that ever entered the mind of man."
 
 But in recent years, the busyness of the Christmas season has tended to smother out our appreciation of the amazing account of the God who "became flesh " and the practical implications it has for how we live our lives today.

Pastor Ray concludes this teaching series with how the Church can reclaim the culture for Christ by reconnecting with the radical faith of our fathers and the kind of discipleship that turns the world upside down.
