Sunday – 4/9/16

My dear friends, don’t let public opinion influence how you live out our glorious, Christ-originated faith. If a man enters your church wearing an expensive suit, and a street person wearing rags comes in right after him, and you say to the man in the suit, “Sit here, sir; this is the best seat in the house!” and either ignore the street person or say, “Better sit here in the back row,” haven’t you segregated God’s children and proved that you are judges who can’t be trusted? Listen, dear friends. Isn’t it clear by now that God operates quite differently? He chose the world’s down-and-out as the kingdom’s first citizens, with full rights and privileges. This kingdom is promised to anyone who loves God… (James‬ ‭2:1) Quite a few years ago I had the honour of accompanying my good friend Les Mitchell on a fact finding trip to Remar Madrid, to the Spanish Church ignited by Miguel Diez of Remar worldwide vision in Spain. What has stayed with me after all these years is the powerful out working of love that each of these men and women, addicts and outcasts have for each other! As men and women are are beautifully rehabilitated through the awesome restorative love they show for each other, their restored personalities reveal how they truly are ‘diamonds in the rough!’ “Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Wind Words, the Spirit blowing through the churches.” (Rev 2:29‬) X
