Saturday, February 5

Erica has been reading The Unshakable Kingdom & The Unchanging Person. A great book where E. Stanly Jones talks about the Kingdom of God through a lens that spits it out in bite-sized chunks, but still its mindbloggling, challenging theology to actually think about and subscribe to. Sort of 'the meat is on the street' type stuff. Easy to understand in concept, but takes on a whole new meaning when your life becomes subject to it.

Anyway, we were talking about it today & I realized the incredible way it is that we're involved in God's Kingdom. That as subjects he actually will use us. How un-frivoulous & history altering those times when we literally & figuratively say "Come, Holy Spirit, You have your way" are.

The lightblub in my spirit clicked on while I was in bristol a couple of weeks ago. At the Vineyard Late meeting, Wallis simply asked the spirit to come & have his way. We waited for a while & then He started to move on a few of us. Wallis said, "now What hope do we have, if not that He'll come to meet us here tonight". Simple words. Andrew probably doesn't even remember saying it, but it shook me & has been revolving around my mind since.

I want more of this in E & my lives, as well as for the people around us... both those that call themselves 'christians' & those that don't but still just need the power of the creator to interupt their screwed-up lives.

I am grateful to have been brought into the Church at the time & with the church that I was. I've had the opportunity to live through stuff that has ruined me for anything less than the real deal of the Kingdom. It may just be the death of me.
