We've had 2 evening meetings and a full day of meetings. As always when you put yourself in this kind of enviroment... it is very challenging!
I wanted to say a very big thank-you to everyone who has been reading this Blog and espesially to you legends who are leaving comments.
May we sharpen one another!
I wanted to share on a passing comment that Danny Googs made about the 7 Stages of Faith that we as Christians move through:
Basically the idea is that when we come to church we are comforted and then connected into the church family. We then begin to pick up the Cause of Christ which leads to us being commited to Christ's cause. Then crisis comes which when navigated well leads to us developing character. Once we establish character we form the grit to continue on in the faith.
Danny suggested that too many people in the church get stuck at the first 2 levels... and this is why the church is the way it is.
What are your your thoughts on these 7 levels of Faith and where do you see yourself fitting in on the levels of faith?
Here's another question... what does it mean to pick-up the cause of Christ?
As always I look forward to your comments!!!
