Hi, new to this site, but have been listening to Ravi for years on radio. Also have been following the ministry on Instagram for quite a while, and get the digest email. Today’s article by Xandra Carroll is what prompted me to join. Ms. Carroll wonderfully articulated many of the thoughts I have had swirling around for a while. The encouragement to share the article will be acted on.
I live in Sarasota, FL, and an active member of our local body that meets as Calvary Chapel Sarasota. I can hardly wait until we can practice fellowship again.
I am feeling led by God to be more focused on His Truth in my opportunities of interaction with non-believers. Additionally being able to interact in a community here will allow me to build confidence on topics, from a logical perspective of God’s Word. I have been recently impacted by quote I think was posted on Instagram by the ministry here “Imagine what landfills would look like if we obeyed the command not to covet”. Intriguing perspective on a topic that until recently, because of materials at RZIM, I would have quickly discarded thoughts as being too ‘green’ or too ‘treehugger’. I am learning (happy to say everyday) that balance of God’s worldview in relation (causation?) to His creation, especially related to his most cherished creation… persons.
