Nothing Else but Christ Crucified

Posted: February 4, 2011 in Uncategorized

Have you ever taken something so simple and made it more complicated than it needed to be? Maybe like taking something that you had to build and instead of reading through the instructions you just began to build based on your own assumptions and found yourself in a puddle of confusion.

I feel like modern-day church has complicated the Gospel so much. I believe that the work that was started in the Spirit is now trying to be carried by human efforts. I don’t understand why so many churches in America have veered away from authentic Christianity. It’s probably because people weren’t responding to the Gospel message so they decided to dress Jesus up as this cute person who loves laser lights, worldly business strategies, and the list can go on. I believe that people weren’t responding to the Gospel message because it wasn’t very realistic to see American’s living out their faith as Jesus did.

The Gospel is spreading like a wild-fire throughout the world, but it has plateaued here in America. I pray that the Lord would awaken this nation for a Revival to sweep across us like never before, but in order to produce such a thing there will need to be a genuine hunger for it.

Paul claimed to know nothing other than Jesus Christ crucified…how simple, yet how profound! As His name is lifted up, people will be drawn to Him…

II Corinthians 2:2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.

keep it burning…
