Ch6 Provocative Church
Church going figures in Britain. Better things to do? Churches in China, Africa, Asia.
Physical exile. Longing to be back in Zion. Why? God dwells there.
A man in spiritual exile? Nicodemus – Religious leader; a seeker. Born again! Scriptural doctrine. Our need for conversion. Our ongoing need.
Are you engaging with God or going through the motions? Are you opening up your life to Christ and His Spirit?
As a community how much are we going through the motions reliant on our gifts and abilities or are we looking to God? I lift my eyes up to the mountains...
Am I honest with God? Am I content with religious formalism or do I want God? Do not be afraid to open your heart to Jesus...I am begging you, please do not be afraid. John Paul II Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him for God is our refuge. Ps 62:8.
