There are a few things that I am currently pondering regarding life with God and his church. I thought I’d just jot them down here, in a sort of short hand way. Perhaps you are pondering them as well and might add to my ponderings, but really I am putting them down here to look back later and see what I was pondering in 2008. 🙂
Do we need to publicly and corporately set God apart from all else, with or without musical aid?
Should I have more of an urgent desire to help people know they are loved by their Father?
With other people, I mean. How do I make an ongoing conversation with God easily flow into conversation with other believers – and my family.
It’s important to some people. Really important. But to me, just meaningless. Does it matter? How?
The things I am beginning to understand more: (and usually write about here)
For me, and giving freedom to others.
For me, and treating other people with grace.
- God’s love:
Again, for me, and learning to give that to others.
- Reality of God’s presence:
Learning to live with Jesus every day.
- Who Jesus is:
The Word of God, my brother, God in flesh, “watching” him interact with people in the stories of the gospels
When I look at those lists, the first one mostly just seems silly, but to many people – including me for much of my life perhaps? – they are not silly but almost essential. Funny how perspective changes. Who knows the lists might change again after a while. They might be completely different. We’ll see.
