Are you looking for creative ways to share the Gospel? Have you tried the “3 Circles” approach? Check out the video below that walks us through this tool to turn any conversation about the brokenness in our world into a spiritual conversation with Jesus as the solution.
I’ve recently started reading “The Book That Transforms Nations” by Loren Cunningham. Just a few pages in, the author challenges us with some serious food for thought. Quoting economist / author Dr. Michael Schluter, Cunningham states that perhaps God judges a nation not by its income but by how well it obeys Scripture. He then cites several areas of society where America leads the way – one of the highest divorce rates in the world, millions of inmates in prison, and addictions to everything from drugs to gambling to pornography. And, what guides our moral decisions? What do we rely on to make life’s choices? Well, according to a Barna Group poll, most Americans make their decisions based on “feelings” or “beneficial outcomes” for themselves. That might not be a huge surprise to you, but here’s the rub. How can this be true when over 84% of Americans identify themselves as Christians? Obviously, we are not living our lives and making decisions according to God’s Word. Seems like that needs to change. Do you agree, or do you have a better explanation? Think it over, and then pray as God leads you.
What if God gave you a platform from which millions might listen to you? What would you say? How would you talk about God? In the video below, actor and comedian Tim Allen talks to ABC’s 20/20, about his past and about his relationship with “The Builder”? What would you say if you were in his shoes? ( …. what you’d really say, not what you think you should or might say, but what you’d really say.)
Today I wanted to share with you a video by Andy Crouch. In it, we are challenged to think about God’s purposes, and our role. What does it mean to be fully human? What does that have to do with being a disciple? Check it out.
