Faith in the One who Can...

"Welcome to the church. We're just a bunch of sinners and hypocrites here, so you should feel right at home. And I'm the biggest one of the lot." It was an interesting greeting from the new pastor. He went on to point out that this wasn't an idle boast, nor was it something he was proud of. But it was a fact. Without God's saving power at work in us to transform us, we were nothing but a club of self-righteous wishful thinkers.

"The Christian faith is nothing more than one beggar telling another where to find food," he would say. A no-nonsense apprach, stripped of triumphalism. There was no way we could save ourselves or sustain our spirits by our own feeble efforts. We were totally dependent on the One who Can. With Him, we could raise our aspirationsbeyond the gutter, pulling ourselves out and helping others to do the same. Without Him, we were absolutely lost in a mess of our own making.

"See, I am giving you a choice," the preacher quoted. "And look, the Good Lord even goes so far as to tell you which of the two to choose - choose life!"
