The Inverted Gospel

Reading a book by Mark Batterson called “All In”. He cautions the church about the fact we are presenting an inverted version of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We’ve asked Him to follow us, instead of us following Him. I see that in my own life sometimes and believe that Mark is on to something. We speak, treat others, behave in ways that are completely contrary to God’s word and then blame God because our life isn’t “turning out” like we hoped it would. God forgive us! How dare we (myself included) refuse to follow our Lord Jesus and then be critical of and question His very nature because we won’t simply give up our rights and LIVE FOR HIM! We may all need a wake up call to the reality of who Jesus Christ was…and still is today! It’s something to think about for sure. May we all be confident enough in His ability to catch us and willing enough to fall on our knees and into His open and accepting arms. As a youth pastor for over 30 years, my heart’s cry is to see this generation become “normal” Christians…and live and love the life God created us to live! That’s NORMAL!
