Jesus came to revitalize, revolutionize, and radicalize us, not to systematize, traditionalize, and ritualize us. The risen Jesus is radical, but church tries to make Him liturgical.
Church programs are a poor substitute for the living presence of Christ and His power. Robots need programs. Humans live lives. Let’s go beyond church programs and flow with the presence of the Holy Spirit. You can sit through many church programs and be unchanged, but if a Christ-gram enters your heart, you’re transformed in an instant!
Religious observers, passively watching church programs, can confuse the programs with Christ’s presence and miss out on His power. However, the reality of the resurrection means there is no need to substitute religious programs for the presence of Jesus.
Jesus said: “I am the way.” We don’t need a program because Jesus is the program!
Churches make it easy to follow men and programs, but Christians are called to follow Christ. The Bible lists divisions; “of Paul,” “of Cephas,” “of Apollos,” “of Christ,” & says “You are still worldly.” (1 Cor. 3)
Many people have Freudian’s but Christ wants to slip you a Godian! (Watch for His light!)
God has more answers than Google! Ask Him!” If you find faith to be monotony, then you’ve forgotten Me!” –God
