Tomorrow night we begin the first of what will be twelve sessions in an overview of the book of Revelation. I’m excited to do this study for a number of reasons, one of which is to simply brush up myself on all things End Times. But I do have one request as our group delves into eschatalogical scenarios.
We are listening/watching a series by Mike Bickle from the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Missouri. We have all been influenced by the teaching and worship that has come from there, and for that I’m grateful. But during this times, I’m hoping that we’ll cling to something deeper than an affiliation with a ministry, no matter how good they’ve been to exemplify Christ to us, as well as bring us closer to Him. What I want is truth, no matter the cost. I want us to challenge each other with a Berean spirit–searching the Scriptures to see if what they say is true. We don’t want affinity to a ministry, we want to cling the the truth, the Word of God.
So as we endeavor together, let’s commit to each other that we’ll be discerning and thoughtful, as well as kind and gracious. The whole point isn’t to put a few more pointer in our bag so that we can win arguments, but instead to find truth at any cost. And to fall more in love with the Lover of our souls.
So for the two of you who check my blog with any regularity (and I’m married to one of them–thanks, babe!), could you help me to pass on my request. I surely do appreciate it.
