How Can We Serve You?

I am about to enjoy some vacation time and boy do I want and need it!!! Thank You Jesus!

However, in the truth of my involvement with you in the gracious Dance and Dream of the Father, Son and Spirit, part of the reason I look forward to vacation is the anticipation of getting back (after private renewal and recharge!!!) to proclaim the Gospel publicly again! I may be misguided and a little off base in many people’s view (and sometimes my own! Ha-Ha!), but I personally believe that I am doing what I was specifically called and developed to do in the grace of the Triune God! I am called distinctly to participate with Jesus in preaching and proclaiming The Good News of Himself in Relationship with the Trinity, Humanity and All of Creation!

More and more I feel like I can relate with the Apostle Paul as he spoke these words in Acts 20:22-24 (The Message):

22-24“But there is another urgency before me now. I feel compelled to go to Jerusalem. I’m completely in the dark about what will happen when I get there. I do know that it won’t be any picnic, for the Holy Spirit has let me know repeatedly and clearly that there are hard times and imprisonment ahead. But that matters little. What matters most to me is to finish what God started: the job the Master Jesus gave me of letting everyone I meet know all about this incredibly extravagant generosity of God.

And with that one and only Gospel of God the Trinity’s shared Relationship, Communion and Oneness in mind, I no longer believe in doing anything alone! The Father has never done anything alone. Jesus has never done anything alone. The Holy Spirit has never done anything by Himself. In His grace, I, too, want to intentionally participate in and share in that EXACT way of His living!

Those things being noted, HOW CAN WE ON THIS BLOG SERVE YOU??? As Jesus Christ is personally encountering you, and sharing with YOU His self-giving and shared life, what subjects would YOU like to see us address on this blog in the Light of the Gospel of our Adoption into the Trinity in Jesus? What kind of short 15 min. audio messages would help you to help others as you participate with Jesus in reaching out to others in His Education of the Human Race? What questions do you and other have in Light of the fact that Jesus is the Light of the World?

John 8:12, 12Jesus once again addressed them: “I am the world’s Light. No one who follows me stumbles around in the darkness. I provide plenty of light to live in.”

That being the truth revealed in the Person of Jesus, there is no subject we can address and not have Jesus shed some light on it (even though we still see through a glass darkly!)

We are up to the challenge in Jesus – SO, Bring it on!!!

Jesus will help us think, speak and do in His thinking, speaking and doing! Thanks in advance for participating with us in His shared life, and I look forward to growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus with you when I return!

    I think one of the best things that can be done, is emphasize the importance of clarity in thought, and in expression of thought. More specifically I like Jonathan Stepp’s Messages particularly about being baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Spirit. We have thought of baptism in physical act of immersion in water. If we take that verse literally it says nothing about water baptism.
    Also I really appreciate the Dance and Dream of the Trinity. (we beleive more of what we hear than what we see)
    Also Mr. Stonecypher paraphrase of the scriptures.

    Nobody deserves a vacation more than you. Turn off your cell phone, if you can. 🙂

    Tim: We preach the Good News, some believe it some keep trying to fix themselves, yes we can related to Paul and Jesus. Just like we can relate to legalism….but don’t stop preaching the Good News, just because people want to turn it into the Bad News…..enjoy the vacaction……..Don

    Charles – thanks for encouraging us to play to the strengths Jesus shares with us!

    Bonnie – you’ve got it! Cell phone off AND not answering it for the most part 🙂

    Brother Pastor Don – Thanks for that instruction in the Spirit! I plan to keep preaching it with you in the Grace of the Triune God! Vacation enjoyment I surely hope to engage in!

    I appreciate you and all those who contribute to The Adopted Life. How about more of what an “Adopted Life” looks like? By that I mean, what should our lives look like when we really embrace the reality of our adoption in Jesus Christ? Our marriages, our families, our work, etc! Maybe some testimonies from others who now see who they really are in Jesus – testimony is powerful. Looking forward to more good stuff from the Triune God through you guys! PS Pastor Tim, I was glad it was overcast at Sardis Lake on the 4th of July – God blessed us!
