Pastor Wes discusses how when the church rises up, the world rises up. The world would rather have a buffer between it and the church. When we speak the truth, there is a reaction, but that is what we are called to do, plant the seeds of God.
Pastor Wes notes that Americans think the greatest endeavor is to find happiness in something out beyond us. Jesus tells us the greatest gift he has to give is joy which is deeper and comes from inside. Paul Klavano was an example of the joy only God can give.
In Jesus day, everything was divided between clean and unclean. The story of the woman with 12 years of hemorrhaging and the story of the 12-year-old girl dying present Jesus with two barriers. Pastor Wes notes Jesus had no problem breaking through those barriers. He does this to give them and us abundant life.
