Oh. my.
Last week, our pastor spoke about marginalizing Christ in our salvation. Specifically, he warned us against relegating Christ to the role of helper (the Cross plus works equals salvation). We cannot DO anything to warrant salvation or righteousness. All our righteousness comes from Him; He is Lord of our lives.

On the heels of that sermon, comes this article about St Philips church in Tucson. It is difficult to surrender control (for me, it is an almost daily struggle) and take the backseat- I completely understand this fact. But you know what? If we are to follow Him, we have to (Dad, skip this part) suck it up and set our egos aside.

Guess what? God is in charge! Guess what else? He will not conform to our little ideas! Guess what else? He is big enough to overcome whatever barriers we may put up! There are no excuses, folks. We may not like what He says, and we sure are not going to see perfection in this world, but He hasn't given up on me and I am not going to give up on Him.

Oooooh, you are so right. God is NOT our co-pilot! (A saying I've always detested anyway.)

I love the way you put it... this is the kind of language that gets through to me. Suck it up, set our egos aside. Not easy! But Jesus never said this life would be easy, did he? In fact, he said exactly the opposite.

Thanks for a great morning reminder.

Oh my goodness...I couldn't believe this article! I worry that by trying to be so culturally sensitive, we could be "mishandling Christianity". It's sad, really really sad.

BTW, that evangelical leader deserves a prize the most amazing level of ignorance regarding middle eastern culture 2,000 years ago. It would be funny, if it weren't so serious.

Ick. I knew that pastor was off base when he started with, "God is love - period." If he left off the period it might have been OK. Yes, God is love, but He is a lot of other things as well: Holy, just, merciful, etc.!
