Influencing culture for the Kingdom

Proverbs 8:3 NIV

“… beside the gate leading into the city, at the entrance, she cries aloud:”

This passage and the verses surrounding it represent one of the reasons I’ve decided to dedicate much of the remainder of my life in ministry to The Edge. We all must get God’s Truth out of the confines of the church and out to the people who need to see and experience the wisdom, presence, and love of God. Adam Clarke powerfully said, “There are, it is true, temples, synagogues, churches, chapels, etc.; but hundreds of thousands never frequent them, and therefore do not hear the voice of truth: wisdom, therefore, must go to them, if she wishes them to receive her instructions. Hence the zealous ministers of Christ go still to the highways and hedges, to the mountains and plains, to the ships and the cottages, to persuade sinners to turn from the error of their ways and accept that redemption which was procured by the sacrificial offering of Jesus Christ.” Can I get an amen? As we look at the example of Jesus, we see Him leaving the comfort of heaven and coming to the hot dusty world of the ancient Middle East. There was no air conditioning or comfortable transportation. There wasn’t a cell phone to be found. Today, look outside your safe place and see people crying for God and His wisdom. A lot of them don’t even realize that’s what they are looking for. #BeTheEdge
