Excerpts from the September–October 2013 Issue!
Chip Ingram: Religion vs. Relationship
“The truth does not transform lives. The truth applied transforms lives,” says Chip Ingram, senior pastor of Silicon Valley’s Venture Christian Church. “While Bible study is core, [the Bible] was intended to give life and to change lives. The goal isn’t that people know everything about the Bible; it’s that they apply what they learned—even in baby steps. That will create an appetite for more and more truth and transformation. That’s how God’s love boils over into all areas of your life and the lives of those around you. This is true spirituality. This is becoming a disciple of Christ.’”—Joe Bunting
Helping the Hidden
While meeting physical needs for food and shelter is a Gospel Rescue Mission’s most immediate task, the spiritual component is integral to their life and vision. “Hellfire and brimstone sermons are a thing of the past,” says John Ashmen, president of Association of Gospel Recuse Missions (AGRM). “Many people in the homeless community already feel like they are living in hell. So instead of the hell card, we play the abundant life card. When people in desperate situations know that they have not only immediate help but eternal hope, they respond in a different way.”—Jessi Strong
Ongoing Bible Study: Salvation and Transformation
In Ephesians, Paul calls believers to put on the new self—one “created in Christ Jesus for good works” (2:9). As he clarifies what that looks like in our day-to-day lives, we find more than just instructions for individual growth; we find directions for living as members of the body of Christ. The two are tightly interwoven: How we treat one another can build up or tear down the body of Christ.—Miles Custis
