A New Way

The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.”  News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.

Mark 1:27-28

Jesus was a revolutionary. At every turn, He was challenging the status quo- from political ideals to religious strongholds. Not only did He come to offer forgiveness and salvation, but He offered a “New Way”!

As a matter of fact, before Christianity was known as “Christianity”, it was called “The Way”. (How cool is that?!)

This new “Way” still challenges us today:

  • Be last when everyone is fighting for first.
  • Give money when it doesn’t make sense.
  • Don’t just love your friends; love your enemies as well
  • Look out for #1… but YOU are NOT #1!
  • Forgive when its easier to hate.
  • Be creative rather than irrelevant.

BUT…

We must ask ourselves a couple questions:

  1. Does the phrase “New Way” describe our faith?
  2. Does “New Way” describe our churches?

Or, does “old, bland, boring, and out-of-touch” sound like a more accurate description?

Let us embrace the NEW WAY of Jesus!
