Simply saying “YES!” to the invitation

For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory. – 2 Corinthians 1:20

This is a busy week. Among everything that’s happening (including some construction at the house, three important articles I’m in the middle of writing, follow-up from Sunday’s ER Adventure, everything going on at church, and more…) I am also preparing to speak at a men’s event in South Carolina Sunday evening.

So a moment ago, moving stuff around on the surface of my desk while looking for something buried but important, I found the back of an envelope with the following notes I had jotted down after my morning walk a couple of days ago. I think I may use it in Greenville.

  1. In a world where we love to sanction and judge – Jesus is God’s unequivocal YES!
  2. In a world where we so readily shut the door to the kingdom in the faces of those who are seeking – Jesus is the gate, the way, the invitation.
  3. IMG_6369 (1)As men in ministry, we are called not just to claim the promise but to be God’s promise, God’s invitation, God’s affirmation, God’s resounding enthusiastic YES!
