Cycle C Sermons Based on Second Lessons for Lent and Easter
Mark Ellingsen
"Go against the grain."

This is what Mark Ellingsen wants your church to hear in A Rebellious Faith. It isn't merely odd or contradictory in the eyes of the world to live a Christian life. It is offensive.

To go against the grain – by discounting our accomplishments, carrying no shame in the light of grace, considering no one outside of God's love – is to sometimes make people who worship hard work, the quest for perfection and exceptionalism deeply uncomfortable.

And that is a very good thing.

Ellingsen begins with the irrevocable truth that the ashes we put on our living bodies at the beginning of the Lenten season represent the death we all deserve. From there, he leads your congregation through the brazenly offensive, un-American ideas presented in the New Testament.

Confession does not shame and isolate us, it liberates us. Bearing the cross of our sin is not a burden, but a blessing in the knowledge the Lord has paid the ultimate price for our sin. The Resurrection does not make anyone exceptional. It unites us all whether or not we are ready to enter Heaven together.

A Rebellious Faith reminds us that the war is already won, and we are to live as brave sinners whose Savior cannot be overcome.
