In my head!

There are two major topics floating around in my head for the moment: covenant and kingdom.

Rumor has that Mike Breen has said, to understand the bible you must understant the concept of covenant and kingdom. I am on my way to agree with him, not yet there, but still.

Covenant is the deepest form of fellowship, meaning all mine is yours. I totaly and 100% identify with you. That is covenant. Still don´t get it. Look at marriage. That is a covenant. That is the level of fellowship God is calling us to and us to him.

Kingdom. And here is why we are in a mess: Jesus proclaimed the kingdom, and what came out was the church. Maybe we are stuck in church and not living in the kingdom? I sense that we miss this vital dimention in our lifes. The kingdom blows away our concept of church, blows away our concept of fellowship, who is inside and who is on the outside. It challenge us what it means to live as a christian every day.

I feel that Western christianity is often extremely egosentric. What do I get out of churh, what do I feel during worship. We have turned church into gazstations, we go there to our spiritual gaztank filled up.

Maybe the problem is that we never seek His kingdom first, only trying to build our owne.

Back from London!

I have just come back from a great week in London. We visited a lot of very exciting churches and youthwork. It is really cool to see how God is working in different ways. Man I long for more of this! We visited London City Bolier Room,, St.Pauls and other friends and places.

A prayer....

John 17:1-5

After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: "Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. 5And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.

Jesus, who are you?

I want to know who you are...

You didn´t come to this planet to start Christianity. You didn´t come to start an organisation. You didn´t come to create strucutures or cultures of division...

You came to this planet give us all life. You came to give us truth so that we could be truly free. You came to give us a joy and peace deeper than we could know. You came to show us the way home.

I long for your life! Your freedom! Your truth! Your peace! Your home!

I want to know you.
