church is chosen by God

The church is chosen by God. But the church did not replace Israel. The church is the fulfillment of the reason God chose Israel as His elect nation. And just as God chose Israel to be a blessing to the world, so also, the church, as the elect people of God, are to be a blessing to the world.

unity of the Body of Christ

It is possible to have unity within the church only if we give up on uniformity. Unity is a Godly goal; uniformity is not. Do you want Christian unity? Begin by recognizing, encouraging, and celebrating our immense diversity.

Dancing With Jesus

dancing with Jesus

We spent Easter with the outcast–the lame, the halt, the thieves, the alcoholics, the drug-addicts, the murderers. We spent Easter dancing with Jesus. He loves us. Whether we’re thieves, adulterers, liars, cheats, gluttons, alcoholics or murderers, He loves us. Whether we see Him in a fancy building with stained glass windows or dancing with us in the streets, He’s there. He’s alive. If you haven’t seen Him, walk with those who do see Him. Perhaps you’ll catch a glimpse. Perhaps He’ll come and sit with you. Perhaps He’ll dance with you.
