Matt Carter finished up the Blueprint series at Austin Stone Community Church yesterday. Please download all 5 of these messages and give them a listen.
At the beginning of yesterday’s message, Matt asked the only question really worth asking for believers. “Are we going to live the watered down version of Christianity that we’ve defined today or are we going to live Christianity as it is defined in the Bible?”
well? which is it for you? The version that fits in around the edges of our lives and pocketbook or the version that other people call us crazy for living?
The way I have been asking it of myself for 24 years or so is “what does really meaning it look like?”
I bet that it looks something like this video about front porch ministry:
Are we willing to live on our front porch for Jesus? Are we willing to move nine miles to the America within America where the need is overwhelming to live on the front porch for Jesus?
HT to Timmy Brister for the video
