The Bonfires Are Purifying - But Painful

The Bonfires Are Purifying - But Painful

The reality is, I'm going to be too much for some people and situations. So what? That doesn't change my allegiance to Jesus or my identity as His beloved daughter.

And frankly, if I'm getting heat from all different corners - church and state - I'm probably doing something right, because that's how He got it.

Come what may, I'm just going to trust him to lead me right where I need to be.

I admire teachers like Chris because I came to Jesus as a skeptic and a doubter, so for better or worse, my b.s. meter is super low tolerance. Even a hint of game or manipulation or bad theology from the pulpit and I'm out.

So when people preach the gospel, as Chris does - straight up, double shot, no chaser - it burns so good, and I'm reminded how revolutionary Jesus actually is. Truly, the gospel, properly rendered, is crazy good news.

Are you wanting to get out of the pew and into the world, bringing love, light and good news, but you're not clear how?

Maybe you'd like to off load some of your blessing to someone who really needs it - do a little justice and mercy - but where and how and to whom?

Maybe you want to love God and love others in a radical way, like Jesus did, but handing out tracts seems ineffective and you've got concerns about short-term missions.

The Apostle Paul told the Romans that the invisible nature of God was discernible to us in and through the things He created. Like mountains, green meadows, waterfalls and forests. 

So if you are trying to reset your connection to God, or understand who He is in the first place, why not head somewhere like Chamonix, France like 18 of us are for the next two weeks?
