Mile Markers: Reflecting on the Journey - The End Goal [Ryan Ashley]

Mile Markers: Reflecting on the Journey - The Only Way Forward is Together [Ryan Ashley]

Matthew 4:18-22; 8:18-22; 9:9-13; 10:1-4; 20:20-281. Jesus lived in community2. Lots of people turned down his invitation3. The End Goal in community was to grow people into a people of love1. Individualism2. Idealism“The sooner this shock of disillusionment comes to an individual and to a community, the better for both. A community which cannot bear and cannot survive such a crisis, which insists upon keeping its illusion when it should be shattered, permanently loses in that moment the promise of Christian community. Sooner or later it will collapse. Every human wish dream that is injected into the Christian community is a hindrance to genuine community and must be banished if genuine community is to survive. He who loves his dream of a community more that the Christian community itself becomes a destroyer of the latter, even though his personal intentions may be ever so honest and earnest and sacrificial.”Dietrich Bonheoffer-Life Together3. Intimidation

The little children are those newborn in Christ. The young men are more developed Christians, strong and victorious in spiritual warfare while the fathers possess the depth and stability of ripe Christian experience.”John Stott“Spiritual Journey paradigms provide the perspective that there yet remains much ground to be gained spiritually. Stage theory, moreover, provides a comprehensive frame of reference for the journey. It helps us gain clarity as to where we are presently located on the continuum of maturity in Christ. It aids heighten understanding of the contours we must yet travel on the course. It assists us not to repeat past mistakes and to avoid future pitfalls. It will likely alert us to season of testing, crisis, and dark nights...

The shoes that are mildewing under your bed belong to those who have none. The clothes stored away in your trunk belong to those who are naked. The money that depreciates in your treasury belongs to the poor! Our bread is not ours to hoard. Our bread belongs to our sisters and brothers." Lord Teach Us: The Lord's Prayer and The Christian Life. by William Willimon and Stanley Hauerwas. P.76Quote 2: "So as you learn to pray this prayer, note that you necessarily offer your life to others. Put as offensively as we know how, Christianity is about your money, about economics.
