Abstain…. Not just about removing those things that are not, but to also add in those things that are.

Abstain but be among… We are called to abstain but not to abstain from [being among] people…. Is a light that is hidden able to be seen?

The church is called out… Out to live differently and to live among people.

Who of God do people see when they see me?

Prepositional rather than Propositional

In God
Through Christ
With others
Toward the kingdom

The propositions are not bad, holding to them only can drive peoria away from Christ. This doesn’t mean we do away with the importance of the propositions: the Lordship of Christ, the centrality of the Cross, the importance of the resurrection…

We exist for others, not for ourselves.
