Why we started.
Belonging to an institution isn’t cool anymore. It may have been cool in the past, but not anymore. Youth groups are dying, the pews are empty. Many just don’t want to belong to a God like that. Isn’t Asscherick right when he says, it’s not good news that there is a God. Who cares about that?! It’s also not good news that you have a neighbor. A spouse. A father.
It all comes down to who that person is. Who is God for you? We can leave the church, we can go back to the world, or get to know it, but it doesn’t bring true peace. It doesn’t make life easier. We can blend Christianity with some worldly things and make it lukewarm, hoping it’d make sense then, but it doesn’t.
There’s only one way out of this. If your watch is broken, you go to a watchmaker. The manufacturer. So let’s go to our Creator and find out who He really is.
This means we need to go to the Bible. Every day, for a few minutes. And by finding out who He is, we find ourselves. We find our meaning and peace and purpose. We find our real calling for our lives. We find rest and peace, hope and fulfillment. The more we know about Him, the more we know about us. About the people around us. About the planet we live on. About the future and the life to come. The more we know who we are and who we can become.
