The Law of Connection

As you know, I'm looking into some of the favorite books I've read over the years, pulling some thoughts out and connecting them to biblical principles.

This week's book is "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership" by John Maxwell (the audiobook version is free as of this writing).  This is a classic!  John Maxwell was a Pastor for many years, most notably at Skyline Church in California (that was years ago).  He's now a world-renowned author and speaker on the topic of leadership and servanthood.

This week we focus on the Law of Connection.

On Being Enchanting

So Sunday School and Church services are canceled right now but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be in the Word!  I'll post some weekly video thoughts until we're back together.

This week I take a short story from the book "Enchantment" by Guy Kawasaki and remind us that we need to be proactive in these days...

We need to BE the church - even when we can't GO to church

Irresistible Week 17 - History Worth Repeating

We have finished our study through the book Irresistable by Andy Stanley.  What an interesting and thought provoking book!  We have discussed at length where we find ourselves agreeing and disagreeing with the author.

Irresistible Week 13 - One Command to Replace Them All

"Participants in the new covenant are not required to obey most of the commandments found in the first half of their Bibles. Participants in the new covenant are expected to obey the single command Jesus issued as part of his new covenant. Namely: As I have loved you, so you must love one another."

Irresistible Week 11 - Put Others First

This is the last chapter in the book before we get to the "application" - or "so what" section.

Ephesians 5 says that we are to submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.  This week we unpack that verse and those that follow it.

Irresistible - Week 10 - The Only Thing That Counts

If someone told you there's only one thing that counts towards godliness,  you might respond that there's a whole lot more to it than that.  But you'd be wrong.

Paul is very clear in Galatians 5 - there's only one thing that counts.

Irresistible Week 9 - A New Command

I am constantly amazed at how radical Jesus was.  The Pharisees had 660 rules that were necessary for the spiritual life.  Jesus replaces them all with one. (John 13:34-35).

Today we covered:  The Precept, the Pattern and the Promise.

Irresistible Week 8 - Beginning to Think Horizontally

What is the most clear evidence of a Godly life?  The answer may surprise you.  It certainly surprised the people around Jesus.

When the teacher of the Law asked "Who is my neighbor?", he got an answer that broke all his faith paradigms.

Irresistible - Week 7 - An Ode to Allegory

When we assume the Old Covenant is part of the Christian credo, we force an allegorical approach to interpreting Scripture.  And that's never good.

An allegorical interpretation of the Bible is an interpretive method (exegesis) that assumes that the Bible has various levels of meaning and tends to focus on the spiritual sense, which includes the allegorical sense, the moral (or tropological) sense, and the anagogical sense, as opposed to the literal sense.

Irresistible - Week 6 - You Belong to Jesus

Paul could not be more clear in Galatians.  Those who shared the "blended" gospel were distorting and perverting the truth and were to be condemned.  That's pretty strong language!
