Good morning Seth and thanks for the prod here punctuated by Katie’s video. She came down from Boone the other day and we spent another in our face-to-face sessions doing a certain kind of “discipling” focused on her life and fulfillment of her spiritual manifest destiny. I send emails on her behalf. Make phone calls. Probe with questions. Pray. And in the end we both receive something from the transactrion and more vitally the Jesus focused relationship.
We no I have made the Gospel so complicated at points. We try to start organizations when all the Father ever wanted was faithfulness in the small things. We equate notoriety
with spiritual impact. We think the Kingdom is built on “good ideas” neglecting to remember that as scripture says “it’s not by might nor by power but by my SPIRIT says the Lord.
We don’t conjure up the Kingdom like some genie in a bottle.
And we can’t advance the Lord’s agenda without a face-to-face and person-by-person discipleship ethic in sharing the gospel.
He’ll take the gutter over a parade any day.
