Extreme Experiences of Edification
February 17, 2012 by revbruce
Key question: Have you built a ministry that builds up people to be better servants of the Lord?
Take your time. Think about all of the people who serve under you. Let things play back in your mind.
We need people experiencing edification. We need people being built up within our midst. We need to get busy building folks up.
Their responsibility is to equip God’s people
to do his work and build up the church,
the body of Christ.
– Ephesians 4:12 (NLT)
We are called to do so. We have been commissioned to do so. It is our calling. Let us live up to it.
Give the people who come to you an extreme experience. Offer an edifying experience. Take people to the edge by standing on the cutting edge as opposed to the status quo. Let people experience Christianity beyond the stuffy, Sunday morning sermonized Savior that seems so distant that He could not have possibly walked on earth. Give them the real deal when you share about the Savior. Show them the Jesus who saves. Share the Jesus who sacrificed for the sinful. Provide an opportunity to experience Jesus in spirit and in truth.
Look at some examples of radical Christianity. . .
