I keep seeing and thinking about things that lead me back to the lessons in “The Hole in Our Gospel” by Richard Stearns.
I get a daily Bible verse from Bible Gateway and it showed me again what God is asking us to do as Christians. This is from Isaiah 1: 16-17.
Wash and make yourselves clean.
Take your evil deeds out of my sight;
stop doing wrong.
Learn to do right; seek justice.
Defend the oppressed.
Take up the cause of the fatherless;
plead the case of the widow.
For me, it is so easy to feel cloaked and protected by God’s love. I thought: I’m a Christian, I go to church, I read the Bible, isn’t that enough? Isn’t that all it takes? The more I read and learn, the more I think God is wanting more.
