Q&A #268- Theme verses, altar calls and more
In our Q&A #268, Pastors Doug, Blake and Kyle discuss the following:
1. My wife and I decided to make our family theme for this school year based on Romans 12:2, "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." Easy Peasy right??? WRONG! With the constant divisiveness clearly present again now that we are back to "normal" in our schools, politics, workplace, heck even in our churches...makes this even more important than ever! So I defer to you, how do we do this? In general, but also day by day, minute by minute, meeting by meeting, confrontation by confrontation??? I can google Bible verses about transformation and get the top 100 verses that speak to this, but I'm talking about then taking those and having the rubber hit the road!!?
2. This question is not meant to be critical or judgmental. When we grew up in church at the end of the sermon was always an invitation to make Jesus the Lord of your life. I am noticing very few pastors do this anymore,why is this not done much anymore.It was through an invitation I did feel the need to ask Jesus into my life,and am so grateful.I am not talking about a big emotional decision just a soft invitation without condemnation. Thank you so much for all that you Pastors do!
3. In Matt 16:4, I read that “evil and unfaithful people ask for a sign”. Is this true even today? If I ask for a sign, am I evil and u faithful?
