Jesus. Real Life.

A guiding principle

As I mentioned earlier, I’m working with Urban Youth Impact to re-orient our own lives and our ministries around God’s goals for people, ourselves included. The result so far has been a shift toward inviting ourselves and others into a shared direction, into similar, practical plans for fruitful marriage to Jesus, rather than inviting anyone into getting singular “decision(s) for Jesus” with plans for marriage that are secondary or tangential or even non-existent. That may not make much sense, but more on that to come. For now, I will share one of my favorite phrases that has emerged as we have been making this shift and contemplating various “workout plans” for healthy living as Jesus’ disciples:

“Remember, the goal is Jesus; the means is Jesus.”
