I don’t mean to pry. This is more for my benefit. This is a pondering of my own heart.
What if I’ve been going about preaching all wrong?
What if it should look more like a Ted Talk and less like a full-on Fire and Brimestone message?
What if I spoke those words not to convince and manipulate, but instead attempted to tell stories about life…like Jesus did with parables? Maybe I’ve been going about it all wrong. Maybe I can change. Maybe it’s not too late. Maybe…
Perhaps, instead of over-complicating the text of the Bible, I made it pure…and simple. It isn’t complicated. It isn’t convoluted, or an opportunity to attack “those people”…
Maybe, just maybe – WE can come back to the simple message of Christ, of grace, and of our need for salvation.
Note to self…Keep It Simple Stupid!
Something more to ponder.
