The greatest thing is love.
Western culture acknowledges love to be the most powerful thing.
Writers from Dostoevsky & Tolstoy to C.S. Lewis & J.K. Rowling agree,
as do film makers, artists, politicians and activists.
An intense look at the apostle Paul’s clear, challenging and counter-cultural
definition of love ~

Spiritual gifts inventories are popular, but inherently faulty.
Because the Holy Spirit continuously and creatively empowers Christ-followers to
build up the Body of Christ ~

The apostle Paul gave some pretty clear instruction on what should happen when 1stCentury
Christ-followers gathered in Jesus’ name.
What he described doesn’t resemble what happens in most churches today.
What should happen in church?
And why? ~

When followers of Jesus gather together they gain access to
the power of the Holy Spirit.
But Spirit power doesn’t result from our human capabilities,
it comes via our weakness—even our fear.
The Holy Spirit empowers us to be agents of hope out in their world. ~

Jesus’ first miracle was to turn water into wine at a wedding party.
Providing wine for a wedding celebration seems frivolous.
Ever wonder why He did that?
Ever wonder why Jesus was at that party? Shouldn’t He be healing the sick? ~
