The idea of “So the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14) is completely wrecking my thinking.
As I read back through yesterday’s post, I realized that I need to apologize.
My goal was not to be a cynic but to draw some attention to the fact that Christians are called, compelled, motivated–and all the other synonyms–by the love of Christ to share the gospel.
Let’s take this a step further: If Christians are to be like Jesus, that means John 1:14 is talking about us. When my friend Pastor Gwen preached on the subject (I blogged about that a few weeks ago) her words reminded me of the restlessness in my heart.
My faith needs action because it’s actually a bit ADD when it comes to just sitting still.
Once again, this is all I’m talking about these days (Lord, please let me still have a few friends who read my posts!)
Before I came to Rhema, I was already antsy when I read the Word and saw these truths. Then I came to Rhema.
Most days I feel like a volcano that is dangerously close to blowing up.
How can you sit under Bible teaching 3 hours a day and not get fired up? Lord, please…I need some Ritalin–better yet I need to start serving!
So I have found several places to serve both within Rhema Bible Church and within another organization.
The reason for my apology is because I am a bit of a zealot when excited. It’s just the extrovert in me, I guess, but this is me:
I will try to be less of a nut, okay?
Please know, though, that my heart is not to be a cynic. If you feel like I am being too critical, please let me know.
