I enjoy going to a local christian dessert bar and lounge called the InSpot. I was there for the grand opening and the owner made a reference to those of us in attendance, we were the in crowd. At the time I didn’t realize that he was talking about how Christianity was inclusive. Before Christ we had different labels: ethnic, and soci- economic groups , and gender after Christ we were all able to become christian. The realization hit me tonight as I was reading Eternity Matters.
That is interesting because I am working on a press release for the book ” What’s the problem with Jesus”, an evangelism tool for christian to share with lost souls. Since I don’t want to be one of those christian that leaves readers uneducated. I want to bring people out of ignorance as I bring myself out of it. Lost souls are people who do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ.
A lot of people know Christ but that does not mean they have a relationship with him. I know Brittney Spears to but I don’t have an inmate relationship with her. I am striving on a daily basis to have a relationship with Jesus. Ironic that one of the chapters in What’s the problem with Jesus is ( Living daily for God) .
Another chapter title that caught my attention was Laying the foundation. I thought about my autobiography, The Big Block Goes on Top, the story of the how my life was impacted by a lack of foundation. Thought about I went to church but I didn’t really understand, salvation.
For years I was to busy practicing idolatry to even listen to God. I was just going through the motions going to church. Now I really am in the IN Crowd. I want that personal relationship with God. I have been reading His Word to hear His Voice.
God is awesome you don’t have to say anything, dress a in a specif style , have a particular income, live in a certain neighborhood to be in His In Crowd, just believe that Jesus Christ lived and died for you.
