Distorted Gospel

So, what is a Christian to do? Flourish! Where sin abounds, grace abounds more (Romans 5:20). We are in the midst of a great harvest.

X and Y

Despite the arguments between nurture versus nature, there is a shared belief in our society that a person can never change. If they are bad, they will always be bad; it’s genetics.

In a time of message fatigue, what’s our message?

Need begets openness, which begets receptivity, which begets opportunities for change.

Rhythms

There are rhythms more complex within each of us than any hip-hop song could express, for deep within each Christian lives the Holy Spirit, our metronome: He defines our meter and changes it to syncopate with all within the Church, the Bride of Christ.

It’s A Sign!

From His love, God gives us signs of His intent. Fall means winter is coming. “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14 Video by David Bartus from Pexels

Name it and Claim it ;-)

Yes, I’m a name-it and claim-it Christian but I reject the belief that every new Christian gets a holy Visa® card.

Spit Into The Wind

Even when confronted by the wind of popular belief, we must stand our ground, and speak the Good News of Jesus, metaphorically spitting into the wind.
