Against? Not again.

20140430-231136.jpg

It’s taken nearly 2000 years but I think we Christians have finally done it. I think we’ve successfully turned following Jesus Christ into something more like standing opposed to a mile-long list of this and that. We’re known more by what we stand against than what we stand FOR. Ugh. Gross.

So as a follower of Jesus, let me tell you what I stand for…
God’s glory
Holiness (my own; yours is between you and God)
Passion for Jesus
Grace
Being a husband and dad I’m not ashamed of
People, who are God’s prize creation
Zeal
Forgiveness
Reconciliation
Making my flawed faith vulnerably visible
Healing
Laughter
…and little else.

What about you?
Forget “against” for a few minutes. What are you FOR?

  1. Jerry, I appreciated this very much, because I always like to know what people believe in & want versus what they don’t want–too much negativity! Thanks! Dave
