13 At one time you were dead in your sins. Your desires controlled by sin were not circumcised. But God gave you new life together with Christ. He forgave us all our sins. 14 He wiped out what the law said that we owed. The law stood against us. It judged us. But he has taken it away and nailed it to the cross. 15 He took away the weapons of the powers and authorities. He made a public show of them. He won the battle over them by dying on the cross.   Jesus, you have risen from the dead and have ascended to sit at God’s right hand. Though we cannot see you, you promised that we will live in and with you. Send us your Holy Spirit to lead us into your new creation.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.  We Wonder is written and hosted by Sarah Dahl, and produced by Richard Clark and Nick Thompson.

9 God’s whole nature is living in Christ in human form. 10 Because you belong to Christ, you have been made complete. He is the ruler over every power and authority. 11 When you received Christ, your circumcision was not done by human hands. Instead, your circumcision was done by Christ. He put away the person you used to be. At that time, sin’s power ruled over you. 12 When you were baptized, you were buried together with Christ. And you were raised to life together with him when you were baptized. You were raised to life by believing in God’s work. God himself raised Jesus from the dead.  Jesus, you have risen from the dead and have ascended to sit at God’s right hand. Though we cannot see you, you promised that we will live in and with you. Send us your Holy Spirit to lead us into your new creation.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.  We Wonder is written and hosted by Sarah Dahl, and produced by Richard Clark and Nick Thompson.

21 At one time you were separated from God. You were enemies in your minds because of your evil ways. 22 But because Christ died, God has brought you back to himself. Christ’s death has made you holy in God’s sight. So now you don’t have any flaw. You are free from blame. 23 But you must keep your faith steady and firm. You must not move away from the hope the good news holds out to you. This is the good news that you heard. It has been preached to every creature under heaven. I, Paul, now serve the good news. Jesus, you have risen from the dead and have ascended to sit at God’s right hand. Though we cannot see you, you promised that we will live in and with you. Send us your Holy Spirit to lead us into your new creation.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

18 The Son is the head of the body, which is the church. He is the beginning. He is the first to be raised from the dead. That happened so that he would be far above everything. 19 God was pleased to have his whole nature living in Christ. 20 God was pleased to bring all things back to himself. That’s because of what Christ has done. These things include everything on earth and in heaven. God made peace through Christ’s blood, by his death on the cross. Jesus, you have risen from the dead and have ascended to sit at God’s right hand. Though we cannot see you, you promised that we will live in and with you. Send us your Holy Spirit to lead us into your new creation.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

15 The Son is the exact likeness of God, who can’t be seen. The Son is first, and he is over all creation. 16 All things were created in him. He created everything in heaven and on earth. He created everything that can be seen and everything that can’t be seen. He created kings, powers, rulers, and authorities. All things have been created by him and for him. 17 Before anything was created, he was already there. He holds everything together.  Jesus, you have risen from the dead and have ascended to sit at God’s right hand. Though we cannot see you, you promised that we will live in and with you. Send us your Holy Spirit to lead us into your new creation.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Scripture passage: John 14:1-7, 15-19 Jesus said to his friends, “Do not let your hearts be troubled.” How is my heart, right now? Can I offer it to Jesus, who speaks peace and love to troubled hearts? I wonder, do I ever feel like I don’t know the way? Is it hard sometimes to know what I should do, or say, or who I should trust? What do I want to say to God about that? How does it feel to hear Jesus’s words: “I am the way, the truth, and the life?”  Jesus calls the Holy Spirit our friend: someone who is for us, who wants the best for us, and who loves to be with us. Can I invite the Holy Spirit to befriend me and walk with me today? The Holy Spirit also leads us along Jesus’s way. I wonder, can I trust that Jesus’s ways are always good, even when they are hard? That Jesus’s steps of love, forgiveness, and humility will always bring me home to God? Jesus, you are the way home to God. Jesus, you are the truth of God’s love for us and for the world. Jesus, you are the life that creates and sustains us, and carries us through death into eternal life with God. Send your Spirit to us and help us walk in your ways with joy and gratitude. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Like what you hear? Want to support future seasons and get some occasional fun insider perks?

11 In the same way, consider yourselves to be dead as far as sin is concerned. Now you believe in Christ Jesus. So consider yourselves to be alive as far as God is concerned. 12 Don’t let sin rule your body, which is going to die. Don’t obey evil desires. 13 Don’t give any part of yourself to serve sin. Don’t let any part of yourself be used to do evil. Instead, give yourselves to God. You have been brought from death to life. So give every part of yourself to God to do what is right.  Gracious God, give us ears to hear and hearts to receive your words of peace. Thank you for pouring your love into our hearts, and help us to be confident in all that Jesus has done for us.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.  We Wonder is written and hosted by Sarah Dahl, and produced by Richard Clark and Nick Thompson.

1 What should we say then? Should we keep on sinning so that God’s grace can increase? 2 Not at all! As far as sin is concerned, we are dead. So how can we keep on sinning? 3 All of us were baptized into Christ Jesus. Don’t you know that we were baptized into his death? 4 By being baptized, we were buried with Christ into his death. Christ has been raised from the dead by the Father’s glory. And like Christ we also can live a new life.  Gracious God, give us ears to hear and hearts to receive your words of peace. Thank you for pouring your love into our hearts, and help us to be confident in all that Jesus has done for us.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

6 At just the right time Christ died for ungodly people. He died for us when we had no power of our own. 7 It is unusual for anyone to die for a godly person. Maybe someone would be willing to die for a good person. 8 But here is how God has shown his love for us. While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Gracious God, give us ears to hear and hearts to receive your words of peace. Thank you for pouring your love into our hearts, and help us to be confident in all that Jesus has done for us.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

1 We have been made right with God because of our faith. Now we have peace with him because of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through faith in Jesus we have received God’s grace. In that grace we stand. We are full of joy because we expect to share in God’s glory. 3 And that’s not all. We are full of joy even when we suffer. We know that our suffering gives us the strength to go on. 4 The strength to go on produces character. Character produces hope. 5 And hope will never bring us shame. That’s because God’s love has been poured into our hearts. This happened through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.  Gracious God, give us ears to hear and hearts to receive your words of peace. Thank you for pouring your love into our hearts, and help us to be confident in all that Jesus has done for us.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Scripture passage: Philippians 2:1-11 I wonder: does belonging to Christ help me in any way? Does his Jesus’ love comfort me at all? Has Jesus ever been gentle with me? I wonder, can I sit for a minute with the good news that Jesus, who is equal with God, emptied himself of everything so that he could come and live with us?  Jesus emptied himself out, all the way to death on the cross. I wonder, how does Jesus show me what God is like? What do I want to say to Jesus about that? I wonder if it’s hard sometimes to think and act like Jesus did? Can I ask his Holy Spirit to breathe into me and help me? I wonder how I can look out for the good of others around me this week? Can I ask Jesus, right now and throughout the week, to show me? Jesus, your life, death, and resurrection were all for us and for God’s glory. You show us God’s ways of humility and kindness, and by your Spirit you give us the power to walk in your steps. Thank you for being gentle and loving towards us, and be with us this week as we look out for one another. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Like what you hear?

19 So you are no longer outsiders and strangers. You are citizens together with God’s people. You are also members of God’s family. 20 You are a building that is built on the apostles and prophets. They are the foundation. Christ Jesus himself is the most important stone in the building. 21 The whole building is held together by him. It rises to become a holy temple because it belongs to the Lord. 22 And because you belong to him, you too are being built together. You are being made into a house where God lives through his Spirit.  Jesus Christ, you are our peace. Because of your death and resurrection, God gives us life even when we are dead in sin. Now we are called to follow you. Help us sing your praise in all that we do and say.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.  We Wonder is written and hosted by Sarah Dahl, and produced by Richard Clark. You can connect with us at sarah@wewonderpod.com, or on Instagram and Twitter @wewonderpod.  Like what you hear?

14 Christ himself is our peace. He has made Jews and Gentiles into one group of people. He has destroyed the hatred that was like a wall between us. 15 Through his body on the cross, Christ set aside the law with all its commands and rules. He planned to create one new people out of Jews and Gentiles. He wanted to make one peace between them. 16 He planned to bring both Jews and Gentiles back to God as one body. He planned to do this through the cross. On that cross, Christ put to death their hatred toward one another. 17 He came and preached peace to you who were far away. He also preached peace to those who were near. 18 Through Christ we both come to the Father by the power of one Holy Spirit.  Jesus Christ, you are our peace. Because of your death and resurrection, God gives us life even when we are dead in sin. Now we are called to follow you. Help us sing your praise in all that we do and say.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.  We Wonder is written and hosted by Sarah Dahl, and produced by Richard Clark.

12 Before you believed in Christ, you were separated from him. You were not considered to be citizens of Israel. You were not included in what the covenants promised. You were without hope and without God in the world. 13 At one time you were far away from God. But now you belong to Christ Jesus. He spilled his blood for you. This has brought you near to God.  Jesus Christ, you are our peace. Because of your death and resurrection, God gives us life even when we are dead in sin. Now we are called to follow you. Help us sing your praise in all that we do and say.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.  We Wonder is written and hosted by Sarah Dahl, and produced by Richard Clark.

6 God raised us up with Christ. He has seated us with him in his heavenly kingdom. That’s because we belong to Christ Jesus. 7 He has done it to show the riches of his grace for all time to come. His grace can’t be compared with anything else. He has shown it by being kind to us. He was kind to us because of what Christ Jesus has done. 8 God’s grace has saved you because of your faith in Christ. Your salvation doesn’t come from anything you do. It is God’s gift. 9 It is not based on anything you have done. No one can brag about earning it. 10 We are God’s creation. Now we can do good works. Long ago, God prepared these works for us to do.  Jesus Christ, you are our peace. Because of your death and resurrection, God gives us life even when we are dead in sin. Now we are called to follow you. Help us sing your praise in all that we do and say.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

3 At one time...Our desires were controlled by sin. We tried to satisfy what they wanted us to do. We followed our desires and thoughts. God was angry with us, like he was with everyone else. That’s because of the kind of people we all were. 4 But God loves us deeply. He is full of mercy. 5 So he gave us new life because of what Christ has done. He gave us life even when we were dead in sin. God’s grace has saved you.  Jesus Christ, you are our peace. Because of your death and resurrection, God gives us life even when we are dead in sin. Now we are called to follow you. Help us sing your praise in all that we do and say.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Scripture passage: Luke 24:13-35 I wonder why Cleopas and the other follower didn’t recognize Jesus when he met them on the road? I wonder what it was like to walk along, under the sky, and have Jesus explain all about the Scriptures to them? I wonder what words he used? I wonder what his voice sounded like as he spoke? The friends said to one another, “Didn’t our hearts burn inside us as he opened the Scriptures? Weren’t we excited, as he talked with us on the road?” I wonder how it felt, to begin to understand that God had been working in all of the sad and scary things that had happened to Jesus? I wonder how they recognized Jesus when he broke the bread with them at the table? I wonder if Jesus is present to me, in a special way, when I come to his table? I wonder what it was like, when all of the disciples gathered together again, telling one another the different ways they had seen the Lord?  Jesus, you helped your followers understand how to read Scripture. You showed them that God was at work in your suffering and death, and then you shared a meal with them and they knew that you were alive with them again. Meet us as we hear your good words, and be with us at your table, whenever we can gather there again.  In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
19 And you will know God’s great power. It can’t be compared with anything else. His power works for us who believe. It is the same mighty strength 20 God showed. He showed this when he raised Christ from the dead. God seated him at his right hand in his heavenly kingdom. 21 There Christ sits far above all who rule and have authority. He also sits far above all powers and kings. He is above every name that is appealed to in this world and in the world to come. 22 God placed all things under Christ’s rule. He appointed him to be ruler over everything for the church. 23 The church is Christ’s body and is filled by Christ. He fills everything in every way.  We praise you, Lord, because you are good. We sing to you, O God, because you are gracious. You have chosen us for yourself, and made us your own. Give us grace to trust you today. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

15 I have heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus. I have also heard about your love for all God’s people. That is why 16 I have not stopped thanking God for you. I always remember you in my prayers. 17 I pray to the God of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is the glorious Father. I keep asking him to give you the wisdom and understanding that comes from the Holy Spirit. I want you to know God better. 18 I pray that you may understand more clearly. Then you will know the hope that God has chosen you to receive. You will know that what God will give his holy people is rich and glorious.  We praise you, Lord, because you are good. We sing to you, O God, because you are gracious. You have chosen us for yourself, and made us your own. Give us grace to trust you today. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
