mix it

Tuesday August 20th, Hebrews 12:  1-3 Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we'd better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we're in.  The trouble with pioneers is we tend to take the trappings of our journey with Jesus and add them to the trappings of our society or culture and then add them to our own personal baggage and before long we have a church that is more burdened than enlightened by the past.  It is one thing to learn from those who have gone on before us and equate the lessons learned to help us in our journey, it is quite another to take parts of their journey, mix it with our culture and personal garbage and hang it around the necks of our children as an absolute.  How much good, but basically useless stuff is in your pockets or around your neck?  How about in your worship?  How about in your life?
