Think outside the box
Jesus calls us out of the box.
Jesus calls us to live in freedom, not under law.
Jesus calls us to live in love, not judgment.
Jesus calls us to live in hope, not fear.
We try to put him in the box – the box of theology, of doctrine, of tradition, of “correct understanding”.
John the Baptist had his own preconceptions and Jesus surprised him by not stepping into that box.
Too often, churches attempt to put people into their particular theological box – Evangelical, Catholic, Charismatic, Dispensational, …………….. (insert box-label of choice).
A change of image:
The bowl offers safety of a kind – but not freedom.
The ocean offers freedom – but not safety.
Which do we choose?
Enjoy the swim…
