Kingdom Tension - Prayer & Action
Koen Prinzen, February 9, 2020
What is your go to strategy to deal with a challenge or an issue in your life? Do you spur into action? Or do you devote to prayer? Here’s the thing. This is not an either-or thing. Our prayers and our actions are supposed to be intertwined. We fully rely on God, yet we understand that He is calling us to usher in His Kingdom.
Kingdom Tension - Unique & United
Koen Prinzen, February 2, 2020
Ever heard of the Dutch word “eenheidsworst”? Literally translated, this would be sausage-unity. It’s a type of unity where you have to lose your uniqueness in. This is not the type of unity the Bible calls us to. In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul compares the church to a body, where all the unique parts contribute in a uniquely valuable way to form a well-functioning unity. In this message, I want to talk about a tension we may experience sometimes in a church. It is a tension of uniqueness and unity. God has created all of us uniquely – with our own personality, strengths, weaknesses and some of us with a special manual. God has also created us to live intimately connected to others.

How can we deal with this? And what does the Bible have to say about it?

You may feel there is not enough time for everything you would like to do. In creeps anxiety, worry and restlessness. We need to try to find rest, because The Bible commands us to rest.
A Christmas Culture Clash
The King is Coming 3/3
Koen Prinzen, December 22, 2019
The whole Christmas story is one big culture clash. Heaven and earth collide with a loud: BANG! What did the God of heaven and earth, who arranged for three men to come from a far away land following a star, but didn't arrange proper lodging for Joseph and Mary on the night of Jesus' birth, want to communicate to us?
