As stated in the slogan, the primary purpose of my work is to help both people and society experience God's love in a tangible way.
God has always changed His perspective between the nation of Israel as a collective and single individuals. He often spoke to the nation of Israel or about the city of Jerusalem as if they were creatures with their own personality and will. Therefore, I am convinced that God wants to meet not only individuals, but also organizations, cities, sectors of society, and entire nations.
As described in the Letter to the Romans, the whole creation longs for salvation. Thus, through Christ, the Father has reconciled not "only" with humanity, but with the entire cosmos (2 Corinthians 5:18-19). Jesus himself, in the Lord's Prayer, expresses this longing of the Father that "heaven may be on earth."
In other places in the Bible, God proclaims that He will pour out His Spirit on all flesh (Acts 2:17, Joel 3:1). Likewise, it says that the whole earth will be full of the knowledge of God as the seas are covered with water (Hab.2:14 & Isa.11:9).
There is theological debate about how much of these promises will already be fulfilled in this age. But regardless, I consider it undeniable that this is the basic direction of God's work and we should direct our striving towards it. Heaven on earth!
Heaven in people's hearts and heaven around them. Heaven has come near! This kingdom of heaven, this kingdom of love shall be established. Rejoice! For everyone this heavenly love is tangible and can be experienced. It is to become obvious in the individual people, between people and up to the structures of social areas. Everywhere there will be recognizable that God exists, that God is good and that He loves every human being.
God is love, and the world, or in other words life, should also feel like His love.
Many at the time of Jesus hoped that He would overthrow the rule of the Roman Empire and assume a political reign as their King. But His kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. Rather, it is a kingdom of love. It is the love of God, which freely increases in the hearts of people and in their relationships with one another. The abundance of this love will serve and positively influence society.
According to 1 Peter 2:5, the church is not primarily a building or an organization, but a spiritual house composed of living stones. My primary concern is to minister to people who have chosen to be such living stones.
I offer various counseling formats and teaching content so that people can personally experience this love of God and be changed by it. Everyone has the opportunity to develop their full potential and make the love of God tangible for others in their calling.
Born in 1979, in Switzerland, I have lived most of my life in the Basel region. I completed the first four years of primary school in communist Yugoslavia.
Different cultures, world views and my Christian faith have had a great influence on me. Deep questions of life have accompanied me as far back as I can remember. At the same time, I am grateful for the inner richness that I have been gifted with through my biography.
I have been married to my wonderful wife since 2015. In the meantime, I am the father of two children.
