Chapel

Living in Shalom

Sten-Erik, the Director of Spiritual Formation at DTS, asks if the law of sin and death has been broken—if I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but he lives in me—if I am a new creation in Christ and the old has gone, the new has come … Why do I still find myself living in sin? In this chapel we look at the very real struggle between our desire for sin and our desire to pursue Christ. With the help of the Apostle Paul and Augustine of Hippo we take a look at the history of sin and humanity through a theological anthropology. Spoiler alert, it ends with hope!

In his final year of the ThM he was awarded the Rollin Thomas Chafer Award for his work in apologetics as well as the H. A. Ironside Award in Expository Preaching.
