When Church Works

...it looks something like this:

-revealing a grace so vast none can fully exclude themselves from it
-a discipleship so rigorous none can fully include themselves in it
-a love so close, so overwhelming, so mysterious none can begin to explain it, save this:
-that Jesus is present here, enticing a spiritually starving, junk-food generation to His banqueting table.
-that Jesus is present, wooing an adulterous and lust-sick people to His satisfying intimacy and our deep fulfillment.
-that Jesus is glorified here, leading a stumbling through the dark, lost, alone, and frightened humanity into the warmth of his illuminated embrace.

When it works, it is light for the road.
