Focusing on "The Red Letters"
In my own personal experience within ministry and the church I have found that we have focused so much of our belief systems, church doctrines, patterns, worships, on the letters of Paul. I often wonder how the church would function, if our beliefs would be any different if we focused our efforts and energy more on the gospels of Jesus Christ. The red letters. Would the red letters of Jesus change us and church organization in any way? If so how? Do we seem to hear more sermons from Paul's letters than the gospels? If so, why? What do you think would happen if we as Christians focused our sermons, worship, doctrines, on the gospels and the words of Jesus Christ. Do we read and study enough from the Teacher? Do we sit at his feet and allow his words to pour into our hearts and lives? What if we majored on the gospel of Jesus? Do you think the church would become more of gospel lived than we are today? How would it make a difference in the world?
