Seeking Things Above

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. (Col 3:1)

The emerging church

Family Church
What is the emerging church? Some friends and I had an interesting email dialog going on this topic a couple of weeks ago. Is it what we see missing in our churches today where it feels like we've lost our first love (Rev 2:4)? Or is it a heretical movement that has joined with the world in denying Truth (John 18:37, James 4:4)?

This weekend we joined many other families, from a variety of churches, to celebrate Easter at a neighbor's house. We told the resurrection egg story to our kids, ran sack races, egg races, played egg baseball and shared good food and then, we worshipped. We sat together on a hill and worshipped our Lord and Savior as families in Christ.

As I sat there on the hill with my arm around my 10 year old son singing praises to Jesus, I thought, "This is the emerging church."

This is not all of it of course. As Christians, we need to not only reconnect with each other in true worship and oneness but we need engage our postmodern world. This postmodern world that believes there is no absolute truth needs to hear the real Truth, the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ that died for our sins.

I pray, all of the body of Christ, "emerges" from our sleepwalk and our luke-warm passion for Christ's passion. Life is not about two car garages and little league baseball. The kingdom of God is here and God's judgment is not far behind. However, judgment is not just for the outwardly morally corrupt (Matthew 25:31-46).
