The One Man: The Pulse of Christ / Romans 15-17

Many people are good at talking about what they are doing, but in fact do little. Others do a lot but don’t talk about it; they are the ones who make a community live.
— Jean Vanier

Is Jesus alive in our church community? If so, where do we look to find his pulse? Is it in our budgets and facilities? Is it in classes and group meetings? Our prayers and worship? Our eating and drinking? Our friendships and families? Yes, the pulse of Christ beats in all these things. The only question is whether we will look for it in faith, whether we will feel his heartbeat through the thick lull of business as usual. As it turns out, it is in the usual business that Christ dwells. He is alive in all our comings and goings. He is alive in us. No longer quench this Spirit. Rejoice, serve, love. And receive the care of one another with thanksgiving.
