Supernatural or Superficial

373287“A superficial approach to Christianity always results in a spectator mentality in the church.”

“However, if Christianity involves supernatural regeneration whereby the God of the universe reaches down his hand of mercy into the depths of our souls, forgives us of all our sin, and fills us with his Spirit, then a spectator mentality is spiritually inconceivable. For people whose hearts, minds, wills, and relationships have been radically turned upside down by the person of Christ, the purpose of Christ will reign supreme.”

“Everyone who follows Jesus biblically will fish for men globally.” ~ David Platt; Follow Me

Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
Ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see ~ Brandon Heath

  1. Amen! I couldn’t agree more. My desire to serve Jesus and reach the world with His gospel is fueled by nothing inside me but flows directly out of his redeeming power planted deep inside my heart. There are days when I would turn from this life if left to my own devices (I know it like I know my name); But his keeping grace rises up inside me at those times until I say, “I must preach!”

    If I am united to Christ, then what is important to Him…will be important to me. The salvation of souls was life-sacrificingly-important to Him. How important is it to me? Your post stimulates questions that poke the soul.

    sadly faith is often like pioneer’s description of the Platte river, “a mile wide and an inch deep!”
