God calls us to be disciples of Jesus, reaching out in service and fellowship
to share the love of Christ.
Sin and Grace as Two Sides of the Same Coin
Galatians 5:19-23; Romans 5:20-21; Luke 15:20-32
What is the Gospel? The Gospel is the story of Jesus Christ. What is the main story of Jesus? His life, death and resurrection. How does his life, death and resurrection relate to us and why does his story become our gospel? It is the story for self-knowledge and spiritual formation that help us see and let go of the false self that we can experience freedom from our sins and to become a living witness of God’s love to the world. How to relate ourselves to the story of Jesus Christ?
At this juncture, the Enneagram serves as a very helpful mirror to reveal our egoic habits (sins) and help us uncover the traps that keep us from living fully and freely as the one created as the image of God so that we can be unique, authentic gifts for the good of others and the world. The Enneagram describes nine different personalities which have been understood as “deadly sins) in the history of Christian church. The Enneagram encourages us to face and recognize them. To recognize our deadly is both a very humiliating and wonderful experience. The Good News is here: “Precisely where sin abounds, grace abounds even more” (Romans 5:20). Our deepest sin and our greatest gift are two sides of the same coin. This is where the Enneagram can help us: to recognize the nine deadly sins (our personalities) and to let God transform them as the nine fruits or gifts of the Holy Spirit.
