Endless Possibilities!!!

It has been accurately stated that "you cannot have an 8 track religion in a ipod generation." Yes... Traditional value and moral is where we find our source, substance, and sustaining. However, we must be careful that the traditional doesn't catch the "ism" bug. Man... Such indoctrination and stagnation can create a great dilemma. I am witnesses a great many, otherwise vital and vibrant ministries, falling and failing because they have failed to notice the difference between tradition and traditionalism. "What's the difference" you ask. Jaroslav Pelikan says, in The Vindication of Tradition, that “Tradition is the living faith of those now dead, Traditionalism is the dead faith of those now living.”


I am realizing more every day that the possibilities for God's people, and ministry, are endless. There are SO many things I envision the body of Christ doing to effect change for the Kingdom and in the lives of those who, otherwise, would not know Jesus Christ as the Living Lord and Savior. He is able to do "exceedingly, abundantly, above, all that we can ask or think." (Ephesians 3:20) Thus, my patience is wearing thin for short-sightedness. Those with a cold disposition and faithless attitude have begun to be one of the greatest irritants for me. Who are we to say what God CANNOT do in the life of anyone that has Him on their side?

Hallelujah... I am expecting GREAT and MIGHTY things to be made manifest in the life of every believer that has the audacity to believe, trust, and walk by faith rather than sight. "With people it is impossible, but not with God. For with God ALL things are possible." (Mark 10:27)

God Be Praise,
