I read this past week – “It’s not that the atheists have stopped taking their belief serious as much as the atheists now think the Christians don’t really take their Christianity seriously.”
Reread that – again and again. Talk about an inditement! And yet, I think greater still, we need to ask ourselves the serious question, “Is their assessment true of us – as a church and as individual parts of His church?”
In my personal Bible readings the past two weeks, I’ve been camping in the book of Colossians. Over and over, I continue to read as if Paul is writing directly to me. It’s been humbling, challenging, and truly helpful.
Maybe you would want to join me on this spiritual quest, and read, and reread, Paul’s letter – allowing the Holy Spirit to point out those areas in your life that need His transformational work?
My friends, these are important days for the witness of God’s church and the transfiguration of someone’s life.
