Daily Devotional – July 25

Time to Grow Up

Part 2

Step into 88 A.D.  Into the shoes of our brothers in the previous post.

Close your eyes, and emerse yourself, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Lay aside all the unnecessary paraphernalia, embellishment, and conditional thoughts you have inherited from nineteen hundred years of church councils, tradition, theologians, translators and interpreters.

And,

a lifetime of preconcieved biases, teachings and beliefs.

Imagine.

There are no state churches, conventions, creeds, prescribed orders, constitutions, cannons, scholarly commentaries

–not even a completed New Testament.

Ask the same questions those Christians asked themselves centuries ago.

What would bring you out into the dark night, where government agents intent upon your arrest and death lurk, to assemble with those so different?

What does it mean to be a Christian?

What is a Christian?

Do we even remember?


Luke 18:8 (b) Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
