Jesus spoke gently and kindly to children and to people in need, but He had high expectations and strong words for those who claim to be His disciples. In the 10minas blog you will be challenged to think critically about how seriously we are taking Him, and will be invited to engage with Him in the most exciting and rewarding adventure that you could imagine.
That something big is going on in our world seems obvious to many. 10minas is based on an assumption that, just as God orchestrated things in Rome and Israel, and had special people in certain places for specific reasons for the first coming of Jesus, so He is aligning things today for another great event.
I don’t know just when or how things will happen, nor do you, but probably all God-lovers believe that some major events will take place before THE END. And maybe soon. Let’s not get into eschatological debates – let’s focus on what it means to be God’s people in this Day and for as long as we have, and encourage each other in that.
Obviously, we’ll consider Jesus’ Parable of 10 Minas in Luke 19:11-27. And we’ll look into some of His other words and will challenge us to think critically about how seriously we are taking Him personally and as the Church. And you will see book recommendations, excerpts from devotionals, and some candid glimpses into my own journey.
Think about this. If we made radical changes in order to become more faithful with the minas that the Master has entrusted to us, and the world just kept going and going for another 1000-years like it has for the last 1000, we would simply have become more like what God always wanted us to be! We win either way. Let’s!
