A head full of theology can never take the place of a heart full of love, compassion, and holiness. Jesus is so great and puts me is such a high state, I don’t need anything else for a buzz!
There’s an amazing beauty when Christ-followers gather only as members of the body of Christ and not as members of a particular group or church.
The problem’s not that Jesus is missing from the world’s culture. It’s that too often He is missing from Christians’ words, beliefs, and actions. The Bible says that the early Christians were “competent to instruct one another” (not just sermon hearers). Romans 15:14.
If church doesn’t directly connect us to the godly, life-transforming power of the risen Jesus, we leave the way we came. The purpose of revival isn’t to get people excited about church and religion. It’s to fill people with the living Jesus.
Jesus living within
Is like sunshine
On the skin,
Releasing warmth, peace, and joy.
Think triumphant thoughts. Toss out. tormenting thoughts. There’s no reason to scorn the morning. Instead, adorn the morning with joy.
