Essence

Where are we going?  What are we doing?  How are we to get there?  And is there a Divine agenda?  These are critical questions considering the “sea” of information, ideas, objectives, values, and practices available to  our contemporary redeemed communities.   There are many “buzz words” that testify to the many emphases of our faith communities such as kingdom, apostolic, prophetic, legacy, destiny, relevance, culture-friendly, creature-friendly, church growth and spiritual health.  We have wandered through periods of monasticism, materialism, humanism, liberalism, legalism, and even lawlessness.  There have been periods of examination and criticism which surfaced in a variety of publications that examined   specific movements   such as  Word of Faith, Kingdom, Discipleship and Shepherding.  While some of these writing represented honest concerns for truth, many were simply complaints against principles and practices that existed outside the theological boundaries of  the authors.  If the earth is to be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord; if the kingdoms of this world are to become the kingdom of our Lord; and if the manifold wisdom of God is to be made known through the Church then there is the possibility that a Divine agenda exists.  It may be  good to re-examine the essence of this whole redemptive process.
