“Paul was devoted to a Person not to a cause”…”He was absolutely Jesus Christ’s, he saw nothing else, he lived for nothing else.”
When I think about our cause…the emerging church…I often wonder if we get too wrapped up in wanting something new and different that we have forgotten what is oldest and most pure.
Not that I want to undervalue our desire to heed change. I can only hope that our purpose is driven by what led us to this place in the beginning. Christ is who we want people to encounter, sure we want him to be encountered in a new way, but he remains the same, the Alpha and Omega. Let us not forget or lose focus on the one who gives us life, strength, and a desire to let all know how much his loves yearns for them.
