Good podcast? Give it some love!
The Painted Door Church is church family that gathers in Chicago, IL. We are a people who share the same story; we are sinner, saved by grace. We draw our name from the Exodus account in the Hebrew Scriptures, when God spared his people from judgement, passing over all homes that had the blood of a spotless lamb painted across their doorways. Jesus is the new spotless lamb, his death on a Roman cross sparing the people of God from judgment once for all. He reconnects us to our Maker and to each other and invites us to participate in his grand work of restoring all things.

The One Man: To Please God / Romans 8:1-11
Part of what it means to be a Christian is to be filled with a desire to please God. He is our Father, and we want to live in his pleasure. But what pleases God? Is it seeing us better ourselves, watching us pull ourselves up by the bootstraps and really make something of our lives? No, the Apostle Paul tells us that it is impossible to please God with such labor in our own strength. God is holy, and the only thing that pleases him is perfection. He will not settle for anything less for us. So it is that self-improvement winds up being a dead end. To please God, we need something beyond ourselves. We need a whole new way of being. And he has given that to us in the Spirit of Christ
The One Man: The War Within / Romans 7:13-25
God’s plan to rescue people from the slavery and ruin of sin is not a game of carrots and sticks. He has no interest in reforming our broken flesh into a more disciplined version of itself. Instead, he gives us his Son. The gift of Jesus is a gift of something finished, a new way of life already completed. By faith, we receive this gift of new life. And by faith, the gift of new life manifests in us. Yet we often forget that this gift is ours. We turn back to our broken flesh and live according to old patterns. It’s as though we have two identities at war within us -- a perfect, whole identity in Christ and a fractured, irredeemable identity in the flesh. Salvation is not in mixing the two together, but rather in trusting that the new is more real than the old.
The One Man: Slaves to Righteousness / Romans 6:15-23
“The paradox is that God must destroy in us all illusions of righteousness before he can make us righteous.” — Martin Luther There are objective aspects to our faith and there are subjective aspects to our faith. It is both safe and dangerous. Free and spoken for. The free gift of union with Jesus Christ is not meant to belittle, or make void, the moment by moment mess that is the individual experience of grace. It makes experience safe. It makes experience alive. It makes experience begin and end in the love of our heavenly Father, not a Divine taskmaster. But also dangerous. This union with Christ does not take away from our upward call into glory, rather, the Cross unleashed the very Divine Lifeblood that makes us alive and carries us upward. This Divine Life is Cross shaped, heals through death, saves souls by losing lives. Surrender and be sanctified.
