see? i told you johnny was cool.

just read this on johnny green's blog. check it out:

    I had a great day yesterday meeting with ministry leaders in our church. I had five meetings with different men and couples that are rising to the challenge of being a healing place for a hurting world. It is so great to be around people that have passion for Christ and compassion for the lost and hurting. Each meeting was about how to reach more people and how to honor God with a spirit of excellence. Not one of the people I met with gets any reward for their efforts other than the “well done my faithful servant” they receive from the Father. I hope I have the same attitude as each of those leaders.

    I often hear people talk about being a “deep” or “mature” Christian. The answer usually has to do with how much bible or theology they know. I believe that our actions reveal what we truly believe. How can we say we understand justification by faith if we are not doing everything we can to tell people about God’s grace?

    When John the Baptist asked Jesus if He was the Messiah, Jesus did not give him a theological treatise. He said “Go back to John and tell him about what you have heard and seen – the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life, and the Good News is being preached to the poor” (Mt. 11:4-5).

    I appreciate men and women for whom making Jesus seen and heard is a priority.


what a great sign that at hpc we're not just growing but that we're growing healthy.
