I’ve seen many searching for answers far and wide
But I know we’re all searching
For answers only you provide
I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think you’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whispers of love in the dead of night
And you tell me that you’re pleased
And that I’m never alone

Lynn asks whether we should serve Christ or wait for His return?

Roy and Pat asked whether we want to see every Christian using all the natural reason, wisdom and skill that they can, or learn to operate in the supernatural gifts of the Spirit to minister to others in love and power as Jesus did?

- We couldn’t save ourselves, so God took the initiative in Jesus’ death and resurrection.
- We choose a better way, God’s way not ours, because we are forgiven.
Is there anything we’ve missed out? Do you think there is anything here, even something that is true, that is not an essential part of the message?
Today Kay asked whether we are to be faithful guardians of an unchanging message about Jesus, and the need for personal salvation and sanctification, or do we adapt ways of worship, teaching, being church and doing mission according to culture and context?
