Slow Down

This Wednesday night we will be in our fourth and final week of our series called Slow Down. Last week we looked at the importance of rest in our daily lives and some practical ways to achieve it. This week we will be looking at Jesus' need to slow down and find true rest in prayer to God. For those interested in reading ahead, our passage will be Hebrews 4:15.

Being Flexible in Sharing the Gospel

I read an article this week about the culture shock that some people experience when they try to share the gospel with others. We can easily get caught up in the need to exercise our freedom to do or say as we please but at what cost are we doing so?


I have four this to be true in my own life on many occasions. In Christ I know that I have freedom to do some things that others might deem as unnecessary or strange. Yet, while the Bible is clear that there is freedom there, it also cautions the reader to sacrifice our freedoms so that others might approach the Gospel without fear or reservation. In article below, Don Carson says it like this, "Barriers must be overcome. Different groups have different languages, smells, tolerances, history, shared memory. We must adopt as our aim the salvation of men and women. Only this vision will enable us to avoid cloister Christianity. We need to meditate on Psalms 96 and 98; Isaiah 49:1–13; Jeremiah 12:12–33; Micah 4; Colossians 1:15–29; and Revelation 4–5. We must become global in our awareness and compassion. Cultural sensitivity and flexibility must become tools to enable us to address the challenges of cross-cultural evangelism wisely and courageously, rather than ends in themselves to create a myopic elite of lovely, flexible people." I pray that as you continue to seek out others with the good news of the Gospel that you would become more and more flexible to meet others where they are as you lovingly lead them to the foot of the cross. God Bless!!!!!
