Full Time Christianity

John 6:38   For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of Him who sent me

Remarkably enough, Jesus Himself was the model of the first "Christian". Sometimes that slips our thinking. Bearing the distinction of being a Christian actually means that we are "of Christ" or "Christ-like" by its very definition! Jesus was in full time ministry, no matter what His vocation happened to be. More simply put, He was a full time Christian. This one scripture encapsulates so much of what it means to be "like Christ". Even Jesus came not to do what He felt like doing, but to do the will of the Father. So as it was for Jesus, our days are filled with moments designated by the Father. Every day is full of seemingly casual "appointments" or encounters set up by the Father to give us an opportunity to represent His heart and glory to the world. Every day is full of moments where the Spirit whispers "come away with me for a moment". Make space in your life to listen.

In this passage we observe a momentus...

I am not a fan of long blog posts, but some things just require a bit of space to process. We have been in the month Elul. Now, I don't claim to be a Hebrew scholar by any stretch of the imagination, but I do believe it is critically important to pay attention to important traditions in Jewish culture. Connecting with the Jewish people has been in the heart of the Father from the inception of...
