Who are you?

If you consider yourself a Christian, then you have been set apart for something greater. I, in no way mean greater prosperity. I mean something holy.

You are a saint not because you do holy things, rather, the things you do are holy because God has prepared them for you. (Ephesians 2:10)

At Abel House Church, we are trying to recognize those things that God has set apart for us to do. We believe in encouraging one another to do things that He has for and to be the people he has designed us to be.

This isn’t about method.

Consider the following quote:

WE are constantly on a stretch, if not on a strain, to devise new methods, new plans, new organizations to advance the Church and secure enlargement and efficiency for the gospel. This trend of the day has a tendency to lose sight of the man or sink the man in the plan or organization. God’s plan is to make much of the man, far more of him than of anything else. Men are God’s method. The Church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men. Edward M. Bounds, Power Through Prayer (Selected Works on Prayer; Accordance electronic ed. Altamonte Springs: OakTree Software, 1999), n.p.

This is about our identity in Jesus.

For those of us that are saved, we are a new creature. We have been born again. (2 Cor 5:17, John 3:7) What exactly does that mean?

Our faith isn’t something that we adopt, or wear, or even accept. It is a transforming event that is ushered into our life. It changes us into something new that can’t be changed.
