The following links contain the article (Norwegian) that I wrote in preparing to the leadership training in TKS this fall, and the PP-presentation (Norwegian) used under the talk. The gospel, though, is not for leaders. The gospel calls on apprentices, trainees and employees — and leaders, too. It encourages true discipleship, ultimately resulting in, and expressed through, a heart-felt confession of Galatians 2:20;
” I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So the life I now live in the body, I live because of the faithfulness of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
(Gal 2.20, NET Bible)
The gospel. Such elegance — what wisdom; so brilliant a master-plan. I have heard it said, that it cannot be fathomed in words. Yet so perfectly simple in it’s manifestation. So trivial in appearance that the wise constantly confuse it with fraud and humbug.
The article is not a finished chapter, I am afraid. I think I have got more questions on my own now, than I had when I started out a few months ago. Also, I feel that the clear lines of coherence I intended to draw in it, are missing, which is something that I am absolutely not pleased with. Yet; I do not hold an infinite amount of time at present, so I have to call it there (for now), and leave it for the future to embark upon. What is found beneath, therefore, is not “all said and done”, and so much could be added. Hopefully, though, it can stimulate to further investigations on your own. I do not claim to have all the answers, but I hope I have asked some of the right questions.
Please contact me with remarks, complaints, requests or even questions — all according to what you find reading along with you:
Unfortunately everything is in Norwegian, but hopefully a translation will be ready in due time…
