7/2/2023 - God wants us to be people who are REAL

"REAL PEOPLE

One of the most unbelievable things about our time is that to be normal is to be abnormal. If you're a bit weird, you're with it; to be sane or sensible is to be somewhat strange. When did our society begin to adopt the philosophy that anything goes? I think it started when [we] began to reject traditions and deny certain absolutes. The ignorance of denying all absolutes is that in doing so, we actually establish an absolute.

We're certainly not the most traditinal congregation in the world, and yet there are oodles and oodles of Biblical traditions that we observe (Jeremiah 6:16 - ' Thus saith the Lord, "Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls..."). For example, the traditions that God is sovereign and very real, the Word of God is truth, the virgin birth of our Lord, the essential truth of the cross, the value of worship, the fullness of the Holy Spirit, the imminent return of our Lord, and the list goes on and on.

We remain absolutely serious and certain about all of them. Take worship, for example. We're serious enough to find out what is God's pattern for our lives regarding worship, and then begin to pursue that way of simple, honest, forthright praise unto Him.

Anything that has a future is established on a sound foundation. People who reject tradition and deny absolutes only prophesy their destiny.

The powerful, Spirit-breathed work of God today is birthing people who are real. They have flexibility without compromise, and a liberty without looseness. The answer to reality and normality is found in a person - His name is Jesus. He's very real and has a deep desire to make us that way.

That God could take an abnormal, unreal people like us and develop a solid, sane, balanced people... to me, that borders on the miraculous. In fact, it is miraculous.

No matter what real looks like today, Jesus is still the only measuring device by which reality can be measured.

Becoming normal and real,

Ron  Mehl"
