We now have two new “coffee pots” at the church. They are kind of “plug and play” (ok, push and drink). They are constantly hooked up to power and have a premiant water supply. All one has to do is add the coffee. Over the years I have seen many changes in coffee pots, yet the coffee has never changed. If we don’t change the way we deliver the gospel, we may not reach a vast number of people. However, we should never change the message.
Isaiah 40:8 (NIV)
8 The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever."
Isaiah 43:18-20 (NIV)
18 "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
20 The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen.
