Some Christians approach people with a jackhammer. Perhaps it would be better to use a stethoscope and listen to their heart.
Muzzles and masks make meetings methodological. Open hearts and freedom for Spirit-led expression release healing and compassion.
“Let My people go.” Let the members of the body of Christ be free to listen to and obey the prompting of the Holy Spirit.
You can think about someone, sing about him, and hear a talk about him, while ignoring him. Try not to do that with Jesus. (I find it difficult to focus on a religious program and the living Jesus at the same time.)
“Prepare the way of the Lord.” Make room for the risen Jesus to take over your mind, your heart, and your behavior. Surrender.
Modern Christianity is too often a tapestry of apathy when it should be a roaring rivers of joy unspeakable and unquenchable love.
