Sorry, There’s Not an App for That

Like every other area of life, we have come to believe that growth in Christ – as individuals or as churches – can and should be programmed to generate predictable outcomes that are unrealistic and are not even justified biblically.  We want big results – sooner rather than later.  And we’ve forgotten that God showers his extraordinary gifts through ordinary gifts through ordinary means of grace, loves us through ordinary fellow image bearers, and sends us out into the world to love and serve others in ordinary callings.
