Christianity and the Ungodly

“Christianity is the gospel of the failed, of the ungodly, the unable, the unwilling, who simply woke up one day invited to God’s house and went. Period.” John Lynch

A wind has been blowing through my world.

The Spirit, His Spirit, the One wrapped up with mine has been been shaking things up in my heart this week. He has been wooing me back to the heart of the gospel, the heart of what it means to be a Christian.

When He first wooed me I was a little girl. Tucked under covers and teddy bear under my arm, I asked “God” to find my sister. She had been taken by her father, so the story went, and my mom didn’t know where she was.

Read the rest at (in)courage today.

    This reminds me of when Paul talks about loosing our first love.   Sometimes we get so busy serving we forget Selah!   We forget to just stop and rest in Him.  Sometimes we forget why we are serving Him. We do not serve him because we have to, we do it because of what he has done for us.   If he was willing to die for me, then I should want to live for Him.  For without Him life is empty.  I am so thankful for all the blessings God has given me. 

    I just want to say thank you for sharing your heart.  I enjoyed reading your blog today, and everyday for that matter.

    Lovely post!  Reminds me of my life as a HS student.  Doing church, etc. but not living as a Christian in public!

    Thank you for sharing. That was exactly what I needed to READ TODAY, I am God’s child and I know he can woo me again. I want to be. I know there is purpose in what I am feeling like is failure.

    how beautiful it is when God woos us, how undeserving are we, yet he does. Thank you for sharing your story.

    Thank you for sharing this… such a refreshing to know that we can go back to the start, over and over again, and He embraces us fully.
