Incarnational Living

We as the Church are called to live as Christ; that is to live an incarnational life. By definition incarnational is a person or thing regarded as embodying or exhibiting some quality, idea, or the like. [dictionary.com] We are to embody and exhibit Christ to the world around us; both those we deem as deserving, as well as those we may not.

I was so moved when I learned of Kinetic Church, a mobile, theater church in North Carolina, who had 75% of all they owned stolen. It wasn't the fact that they had nearly all their equipment stolen that moved me, but rather their response to the one who stole from them.

Watch...



It is stuff like this that the world needs to see from us, the Church. May we all learn what it means to truly live an incarnational life.

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. 1 John 4:9-12

Wow! Great post, Brian. I think I might have to use this clip in our discipleship group. We started last Sunday night talking about what we are called to as a church body. Good stuff!
