Today is about setting up the page and seeing what I can do with it.
Apparently, I can do a whole lot, which I think is cool because I don't normally do stuff with social media ... other than mindlessly scroll through Facebook.
So as I sit on my porch, I am thinking about how I want to do more than just show up to church on Sunday. When Friday rolls around, I need to ask myself ... did I behave like a disciple of Jesus Christ this week?
What opportunities were missed?
But perhaps we need to back up a bit. What does it mean to be a disciple? Is a disciple a believer in Jesus Christ ... or someone more?
I think it is someone more, because a disciple follows and does. Believers just ... well ... believe! But if that belief only spurs you to self reflection and self betterment, you are not worshipping the real Jesus. You are worshipping yourself.
There. I said it.
And I do it too. So how can we be disciples?
Let's find out. Together.
Some "weekly" musings from Pastor Dave as he sits on his porch and drinks coffee, thinking about theology and lifting heavy weights. For gymsharks, there is something called "Flex Fridays," where we vainly put up photos of ourselves flexing. So this blog is my attempt to flex my theological muscles through reflection ... get it?
