Although fond of my blog title for the past 7 years, Mikes3cents, I’ve been advised to shift it to a title that reflects my and Vista’s heart. The new title comes from the vision enhancing Sunday series in Acts we did a while back entitled: Gospel’s Edge. In fact, we’ve been studying Acts every Fall since our inception in 2007. Studying the early church has kept us in the right frame of mind and heart as a new church plant.
Isn’t this the whole point of the Church? To live on the Gospel’s Edge? To live at the exciting and challenging place of what God is doing in the world? To follow Jesus as He deepens our own hearts for God and reaches new hearts?
Souls are at stake in the world. Lives are being lived, while heading toward eternity…heaven or hell. And the Church is spreading the gospel, the good news, to those who need it. The Church is at the cutting edge of reconciliation — at the cutting edge of helping others to find their way back to God in Christ, and eternal security with God.
The Gospel’s Edge is everywhere the People of God, the Spirit of God, the Word of God (Jesus) and the Lost World meet.
Simply, the Gospel’s Edge is where the Church meets the world.
Even more simply: Where the believer meets the non-believer with the Good News!
I’ll meet you there!
