Your Calling, Your Faith, Your God: Big or Small?
Whether our callings are in the seemingly routine tasks of normal life or in extraordinary adventures in far-off places, we are all called to deny ourselves. And we will be unwilling to do that if we worship a small god who gives us a small faith.
Don’t know about you but I learn much from these 7 minutes or so. “I love that somebody asks the simple, basic question, because it gives me the chance to go right to the heart of the Bible and right to the heart of the best news in all the world that we call the gospel; namely, that nobody is fit for heaven.”
Where is God? Why, even when we ask, does he often let us go on sinning? Does the gospel really work? What is God doing?
It can be difficult for young pastors to develop pastoral antennae, that is, a sensitivity to and awareness of needs in his congregation that he should follow up with a call or a visit.
I want Christians to argue more and fight less. To take it a step further, I’d even say that fighting less depends on our willingness to argue more and better.
