I'm learning more and more about what it means for us as followers of Jesus to be relevant in our world today. I'm not talking about being influenced by the world or by culture, but simply to be in-tune with it and to be the influencers instead of the influencees!!
Faith that is relevant is faith that is active. Each of us should consider on a daily basis what we can do to live out our faith, our love for God and love for others, in a way that begins to shape the world around us.
The moment I think I've grasped what it means to have a relevant faith is the moment that I learn there is so much more for me to learn and to accomplish through God's mercy and grace working in and through my life.
I'm learning to lean; I'm learning to give and I'm learning to trust. I wonder what tomorrow will bring.
