Yesterday I was thinking about how there seems to be a big push these days for the church to be relevent. Over the last few weeks, as we have been preaching and planning for messages on relationships, depression, anger, abuse, men, women, purpose, meaning, etc., it has amazed me to think that the most relevent thing we have is the Word of God. Even after thousands of years, it still speaks to the deepest needs of people and answers the greatest questions. I stand in awe of the awesome power of the Word of God to address, convinct, and change the hearts of men and women after all these years. My desire is that nothing I do would make the Word of God appear to be irrelevent, unpowerful, and unhelpful, because truly it is an amazingly book that has the answer to all of life’s problems.
