I want God to ignite my words with a match made in Heaven so that they burn in the heart of everyone who reads them or hears them, making them a furnace that spreads God’s warmth and light around the world.
Audiences gather for passive observation–as assemblies of spectators. Jesus calls disciples, not audience members.
In the Bible, Christians are portrayed as a family, as an army, as the body of Christ, but never as a passive audience.A group gathered to worship Jesus isn’t an audience. It’s an ekklesia–people “called out” to all pour out adoration and obedience to Him.
I love the non-spectator, unprogrammed, Spirit-led Christianity of the Bible.Outward reformation, without inner transformation, seldom lasts. Jesus changes people from the inside out.
I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia."
