‘The first hour of heaven is like an endless room filled with 2-top coffee tables…’
So says my friend Scot McKnight, author of the Jesus Creed blog and book, who preached for us this weekend. In advance of his upcoming book, A Kingdom Conspiracy, Scot preached on the church as a kingdom community of forgiveness and reconciliation.
We should be about the work of forgiving the people in our lives, Scot argues, because we’ll have to do the first hour in heaven any way.
His text was the parable of the unforgiving servant in Matthew 18.
