Honoring Christ In Our Work-Day 1

Jesus’ work in the Cosmos In Hebrews 8:2 the writer says this about Jesus; “We have such a high priest, one who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, a minister [λειτουργὸς-leitourgos] in the holy places, in the true tent that the Lord set up, not man.” Jesus here is called a minister, or servant. In the Greek, this is the word leitourgos. It is derived from leitos, “belonging to the...

Honoring Christ In Technology-Day 3

The Book of Acts it is the story and history of the church. In it, we see the Apostles send letters, ride in boats, access modern trade routes and traveling systems, and preach in town squares and facilities related to the architecture and culture of that day. The Apostles were able to harness the highest forms of “tech” in the Roman empire to share the gospel. We should do the same. The Apostolic philosophy toward tech in...

Honoring Christ In Technology-Day 2

God’s wise method for making himself known on the earth in something as simple as soil, meals, and a family is brilliant. Why?  We must first realize that God is timeless (outside of and unbound by limits) and can see the beginning of time as well as he knows the ending. It would seem logical that God not only saw our “today” while creating the world in Genesis, and in deciding how he would sovereignly lay out, orchestrate, and...

Honoring Christ In Technology-Day 1

Have you ever wondered why God doesn’t begin the story of life with a 501(c3) non-profit entity? Why didn’t he begin with a building? Wall Street? A School? Why did God begin the story of life with a marriage, a family, and a meal (The Garden)? And yet, with all the technological advancements and church ministry advancements of the past two thousands years, it would seem that in all of our “evolvement” we struggle in keeping our...

Honoring Christ In Improv, Acting, And Presenting Scripture-Day 3

Tom Boomershine talks about how we must once again start to experience old texts – and especially the Bible – orally as they were originally conveyed orally or, in the case of the Epistles, they were written in such a way as to be read orally to others. Tom read the passage in Mark about the calming of the storms and seas. He read it once as a sort of standard reading: the sort of thing you might experience in any given liturgical...

Honoring Christ In Improv, Acting, And Presenting Scripture-Day 2

We have several actors presenting great talks over at MakeJesusCulture.com, Stephen Traphton among them, and the one thing they all seemed to have in common was the expression of the idea of incarnation: that an actor at his best understands, in a weird way, the work of the Son Jesus. Empathy – if this is truly a human act, an act of those who experience and participate in consciousness – mirrors the incarnation as a microcosm in each...

Honoring Christ In Improv, Acting, And Presenting Scripture-Day 1

Over at MakeJesusCulture.com we had Eric Epperson talking about the Improvisational God. He took a good chunk of time at the start to specify what we do not mean: we don’t mean that God changes, for there is no shadow in him due to change and Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. So when we say that God’s improvisational, we don’t mean that he’s making it up as he goes along. What we do mean is that there’s a series...

Honoring Christ In Film And Animation-Day 3

Sing We are to see our Savior in the Words of Scripture, in the Man of Jesus, and in the beauty of creation. We are to ponder and savor what everything teaches us about Jesus himself, and then we are to sing. When I say sing, I’m not just referring to singing itself, although you will read some Scriptures today that will blow your mind regarding how singing is not just a response to truth, it helps us learn...
