God's Makeover

Willingness to grow and change is part of revival and reformation. There's no doubt about it. But what is revival and reformation? Has anyone defined it or do we all assume we know what it is? The introductory lesson to this quarter told us, 'Revival is all about a God of loving kindness seeking to deepen his relationship with us.'

Amad de verdad

Cuando pensamos en el primer fruto del Espíritu - el amor - hay una pequeña palabra en los Evangelios que está plena de retos para nosotros. Es una palabra que me ha desafiado enormemente, tanto en mis relaciones familiares como en las de mi iglesia. Es la palabra "como" que se halla en Juan 15:12: “Amaos los unos a los otros ‘así como’ yo os he amado”, dice Jesús. En este contexto, “como” significa “de la misma manera”. “Mi amor por ti es el modelo. Quiero que imites ese modelo en tus relaciones con los demás”.

Love Actually

As we think about the first fruit of the Spirit –– love –– there’s one small word in the gospels that is full of challenge for us. It’s a word has challenged me hugely in many relationships in both my family and in my church. It’s the word “as” in John 15:12: “Love one another ‘as’ I have loved you”, Jesus says. In this context, “as” means “in the same way”. “My love for you is the model. I want you to copy that model in your relationships with each other.”
