Suffering Glory

Suffering Glory

John 12:20-33

What does self-sacrificial love actually mean? What does glory look like? There is a paradox of the cross – honour in humiliation and visible splendour in disfigurement and death.

The world has a map to the glorious life – “I’m number 1 – look after number 1” and “Get as much as you can and you will be happy”. Are you following the world’s map or the map that Jesus gave us in verse 25?

During this sermon Theo speaks of Caleb Meakins, who died recently, and his father, Andy,  who died when Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961 was highjacked and crashed in the Indian Ocean in 1996. Caleb speaks about his faith here.
