Christians need to get to the point where we’re okay with simply being more intentional with putting out there the understanding of our own faith, our personal experiences, and with the pursuit of intentional relationships.
This is a vulnerable place to be. It’s scary. It’s intimidating. The ugly truth may be revealed that “they” may not like us, whoever “they” may be, if our views do not line up in lock step, if our beliefs and understandings happen to differ, or if we befriend, defend, or seek out, the wrong people. This is what the American attitude does. This is who the worldly ethos is.
But, ultimately, this is who God IS: He is personal; He is relational; and He is, at times, wholly unexplainable apart from experience.
Which, when you think about it, is truly what makes Him a God worth worshiping, don’t you think?
