Short Reads to Stimulate Long Thoughts

AM I ONE OF THOSE?

AM I ONE OF THOSE?

Am I one of those, God’s releasing; a Jesus follower, a disciple rediscovering the reality of Christ in me; my hope of glory?

Am I pealing tradition back to see what is hidden beneath?  Am I, rediscovering the gems that are canceled under the cloak of repetitive lecturing and ‘lock step’ marching?  Am I one of those exposing the real Jesus that has been camouflaged by the rhetoric and religiosity of my time?

It is the Jesus seekers, the ones who see what is, is not, as it should be, and are being transformed by the renewing their minds.  They are inspired by the God of Scripture rather than the precepts of religion.  They explore applications; create faith based actions with Jesus rather than for Jesus.  They probe avenues of expression in light of their relationship with Jesus; their faith becomes an adventure, not just in thought, but through a life, LIVED, in intimacy with JESUS.

They create, explore, and inspire from the foundation of this intimacy.  They encourage, exhort and build up the Body of Christ, in love, by fixing their eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of their faith.

Wake up, oh Church, you are not a building, you are not an institution, you are not a religious denomination;

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood,

a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession,

so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him

who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;…

1 Peter 2:
