So in response to the blog entry on this site (here) sarcastically commenting on commitment in church, a little family squabble broke out with opposing views (here and here).
One party says its the self interest of this age that limits peoples commitment, the other lists numerous other possible reasons. I'm not going to side with either, but make an observation.
At the First Priority prayer meeting on Monday night, we were blessed with a number of people who came to join us. Repeatedly through the prayer time were pictures and words expressing how God has established a community that can serve God in power for the City. Numerous metaphors were used to describe the potential and vision of the church in the city, but the one that came to me was one of vehicles and drivers.
If ideas are the cars and trucks of our journey, then we are not in short supply and have plenty of seats for passengers.
What we need are drivers.
Do you have a license?
