Know Your Limits: Part 2

This short series is an attempt to relieve some of the unnecessary (and unbearable!) pressure we so often place on ourselves by assuming that we possess the incommunicable attributes of God. God is creator. We are creation. God transcends space and time. Not us. God has no limits or potential. Not us. God needs help with nothing. Not us.

Know Your Limits: Part 1

The easiest way to define the doctrine of “omniscience” is to “know it all.” The Bible is unmistakably clear that God is the only one who, quite literally, exhaustively knows all there is to know about everything in the past, present, and future.

Contextualization Is Not Optional

Contextualization is not optional. Hear me, working to contextualize what you’re doing is not just mere pragmatism – “how to get stuff done” and “be more effective” (though those things are important). It is about loving people. A church that does not seek to contextualize itself, its ministries, the gospel message, and every other avenue of communication inevitably creates more barriers than bridges for the advancement of the gospel in our communities.

God’s love not only transforms us so that we can live as those who repent from sin and walk in the light, but it also changes the way we see ourselves. This fills us with incredible joy, grace, and gratitude. As we understand God’s love more and more, we end up becoming like children, in the way Jesus described. That’s a very good thing.
