Followers of The Way

I think it a good idea for those who identify themselves as “Christians” to put ourselves in the shoes of our critics and gain what insight there is to be had from their observations and perspectives. Although we may not agree with everything they have to say—perhaps not even with the bulk of it—nevertheless, there is often truth enough in some of their criticisms for us to reflect on when viewed in the illuminating light of our Lord’s own words.

In his book, The Call, Os Guinness presents just such an insightful look in a chapter entitled Followers Of the Way.

Jesus: Who Is He and Why Did He Come?

Just as important as it is to think through what makes up the good news of the gospel is the need to arrive at an answer as to who Jesus is and why he came. The question calls for thinking beyond any cliches we may have either heard or adopted without adequate evaluation. We need to get a firm handle on both what the good news is and the identity and motivation of the One proclaiming and embodying it to gain the needed appreciation for the expansive nature of God's Fatherhood.

The Gospel: Just What Is The Good News?

It's hard to underscore the need to get a handle on just what makes up "the good news" that Jesus came to deliver to mankind, the core of his message. The conclusion each of us reaches has practical impact.

Mercy to All

This writing, first published in June of 2011, flows from my deep-rooted conviction that every individual born is precious to God, his intention and desire being for their welfare, unwilling that any should perish.

Giving Thanks for What is Obvious and Near

I came across this article while browsing the Renovare website, a place I often visit, and thought it well suited for Thanksgiving reflection. As Renovare puts it, "[The article] is an introduction to the beloved Laura Ingalls Wilder's original remembrance of the “goose that got away.” Before she ever fictionalized this incident in By the Shores of Silver Lake, Laura remembered how the outcome of a silly quarrel illustrated the concept of gratitude in her young life. This lesson carried through over many seasons of various seasoning during her long life."

While sorrow doesn't fall into the category of an essential good, George MacDonald makes a compelling case for sorrow being a harbinger of future joy.
