Jesus wants the rose. AMEN! — Matt Chandler Clip


I know I said I was going offline for a bit, however, a friend shared this on Facebook today and had to share it. I’ve never heard of Matt Chandler before, but he’s right.  Jesus wants the rose.

This is exactly where I’m at right now with the church as a whole. Some of you may find that offensive, especially when you watch the clip. Hopefully though, you’ll see the true Gospel in this… Jesus died for our sins… to proclaim that Gospel, to tell the truth about who Jesus Christ is… is not a sin… it does not lead people astray… it leads them to truth.

To proclaim any other gospel is to make disciples twice as fit for hell as we are.

God said:

GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS, BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER,SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT.

God did NOT say:

SIT AND MAKE A SAFE COCOON FOR YOURSELVES AND LET THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW ME, FEND FOR THEMSELVES.

Not having been born in the church, is becoming a blessing to me.. Christ pursued me with every ounce of energy and passion he had. I am forever in awe and amazement over that kind of love.

I was that rose – broken not necessarily by sexual sin, but by sin in general.

We are all that rose — even when we hide the crushed and broken places behind stained glass windows.

CHRIST wants me.

CHRIST wants you.

Broken. Messy. Crushed. Manhandled by the world.

He can do something with that.

Amen.
