PP045 Attentiveness as an Act of Love

Attention is a rare commodity. When you spend yours on another person, it is a generous gift of love. But there is also an indirect way of loving people with our attentiveness. When we make spending time in the presence of our kind Saviour a priority, we become kinder ourselves to those around us. Learn how the Scriptures call us to make the grace of Christ our focus, not all the debates and controversies. What will you focus on for the sake of the world?

Scriptures Referenced: Titus 3:1-11

PP040 Salt AND Light Christians

As Christians we are prone to veering into ditches. We focus on befriending the lost, but end up losing our Christian distinctiveness. So we start pursuing personal holiness, but in doing so cut off contact with the world. In his sermon on the mountain, Jesus lines our path with two rumble strips: (1) you are the salt of the earth, and (2) you are the light of the world. Together these rumble strips corral us into the radical centre–we are to be utterly separate, in close proximity to the world.

Scriptures Referenced: Mat 5:13-15; Joh 1:5, 8:12; Titus 2:14
