#21 Level The Playing Field

                 We sometimes lack the ability to give people space to wrestle with God. I’ve noticed that this creates tension IN US as we are attempting to minister to others... someone repenting, or simply turning from sin, becomes more about us (and our comfort) than it is about them.
           It’s important to remember that when the subject of repentance comes up, I want to help facilitate, shepherd, and steward this mentality & atmosphere.  I hope this paints a picture marked by gentleness & patience rather than the “turn or burn” mentality that historic, American Christianity has been shaped by.  I remember in those moments my experience with the invitational way that God has called me to repentance, rather than His demand for obedience.....
