Introducing God Centered Life Ministries
December 10, 2014
TODAY'S BIBLE READING:
The Blues Brothers. Not because it is an especially erudite rendition of biblical Christianity (it isn’t). Not because the music is evocative and emotive (it is). Not because the morals are worth following (they aren’t). But because of some of the one-liners. “It’s 106 miles to go, we got a full tank of gas, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses.” Or, “We’re putting the band back together.” Even, “We’re on a mission from God” (as irreverent as that is). Why God Centered Life Ministries? We think there is a mission to be accomplished for the glory of God. Our vision is simply that of a generation living for God. We want to call people everywhere to realize that life lived for God is simply the best life there is. Too often Christianity is being presented today as what it is against. We want to preach Christ and him crucified in such a way that people can see what he is for. He came, he said, to give us life and life to the full. We want to do that by engaging culture. We think there is a way to do that – through blogs, books, conferences, speaking engagements, personal conversations, interaction, listening as well as talking – which maintains biblical fidelity, yet communicates with zest and appeal. We think there is a way to speak to and within our culture in a way that is credible, confident, and thoroughly, unashamedly and non-defensively, biblical. We also want to see more people living for God by training within the context of churches. We want to provide opportunities, networks and connections for people to grow in biblical exposition and church health. We want do this by engaging the academy and the university through partnerships and connections. A lot of this is big. It seems big. It seems too big. But, you see, we believe in a big God. Come join in.]]>
