It is sad to see so many, myself included, who are becoming embarrassed by the word "Christian". I do not want to be lumped together with all the angry voices, protests and petitions I am seeing across our nation.
But I am not ready to give up on being called a Christian. Can we take the name of "Christian" back from the shouters and protestors?
2 Corinthians 5:14 describes our job; to let people know that God is not angry at them. We have been given the assignment of 'ministry of reconciliation'. We are here for 2 purposes as far as I can see:
- To worship God.
- To be ministers of reconciliation.
This weekend we are celebrating the moment when God paid for all of our dirty, ugly gunk.
It is finished.
It is paid in full.
For everyone. Everyone.
