A Poem By Robert Frost
OUR NEW CHRISTIAN RESOURCE PAGE & LIFE UPDATE!
Madie and I have been so pumped and thankful this week because our Podcast, A Few Minutes With The Few, hit 7,000 downloads and we released our new, free, Christian Resource Page that we have been working on for the last couple of months! It is available to download and print right here from the Blog on our resource tab!
The wooden altar, sitting a few feet above the floor, only a short distance from where we all sat, was covered with ridiculous clutter. Game boxes, candy bags, sound equipment, cords, a laptop, and several other objects lined the length of the altar, with only a few small spots of the smooth wooden surface still visible. As I stared at it, I was overcome with a desperate, sorrowful feeling. A feeling of longing to see that altar in use again.
The American Church threw real, Biblical Christianity out the window when we started manufacturing a weekly gathering of people who wanted to be “religious”, yet keep their lives, incomes, and time for themselves instead of sacrificing everything to follow Jesus. We ask God to bless our lifestyles, our activities, and our futile efforts even though they offend His very nature.
OUR OLD, DEAD SELF
I believe that continuing to see ourselves as sinners after we are saved is wrong, and that wrong view of ourselves has a hugely negative impact on our growth as Christians. It keeps us right where the enemy wants us; not living in the fullness of Christ!
