Recently, my husband preached this sermon:
“A little Jesus goes a long way.”
I’m pretty sure it was just for me. Unintentionally for me, mind you, but spirit-driven straight to my ears, my brain, my heart.
Why do I so often think things need to be sprayed full force with words and ideas?
Why do I think everything needs to be steeped in the spiritual and soaked in theology to be sacred?
Why do I spin so many wheels trying to make deep conversations happen, when a snippet of Grace, a glimpse of His face, is entirely appropriate much of the time?
I don’t want to leave Jesus out. I don’t want to fail to share His goodness, His life, and His forgiveness, but I do want to treasure people enough to resist plowing them down with my Jesus agenda. I want them to know Him and love Him as much as I do, but not lose my relationship with them in the process of trying too hard.
This is one reason we created the Ten Minutes of Series for the podcast. Sometimes a little bit goes a long way. Ten Minutes of contemplation, ten minutes of encouragement, ten minutes of deep and meaningful may just change the course of our days and help us throw a little Jesus into everything else.
