Usual Suspects


First day of High school is here. I went to school and wandered the hall ways, talked to the usual suspects, tried to talk to others as well…It was great seeing them all again, reminded me again how much they all change and how different this year will be again. This year we are going to introduce our theme for youth and our church: The Kingdom. Becoming people of the kingdom of God, becoming people who are like Jesus, people that are growing each day in different directions but ultimately desiring to be like Jesus. I think the hardest part for people and youth specifically to accept about Christianity is often Christians, people are not opposed to Christ, people are opposed of becoming like one of the Christians…the challenge is to be an imitator of Christ, rather then one of the club members, who have same politics same lingo same ugly suits…. “He who follows Me, walks not in darkness, says the Lord. (John 8:12) By these words of Christ we are advised to imitate His Life and habits, if we wish to be truly enlightened and free from all blindness of heart. Let our chief effort; therefore, be to study the life of Jesus Christ...Now, there are many who hear the Gospel often but care little for it because they have not the spirit of Christ. Yet whoever wishes to understand fully the words of Christ must try to pattern his whole life on that of Christ.” -- Thomas a Kempis.

Have you read some of Brian McLaren's thoughts on the kingdom of God? I know his next book project is going to be about it, and his latest (The Last Word and the Word after That) mentions it.
