Just Another Friday Night at the Maris'

I'm enjoying watching a bunch of kids all dressed up and having a great time in my backyard, while I catch a minute of quiet. Some day it will be too quiet, so for now-party on kids. It'll be your turn to host next, and I hope you'll remember that I did it joyfully!

What's the Point Anyway?

Have you ever wondered why Jesus spent more time healing people and talking to them about how to act towards each other and never once laid out the 'Plan of Salvation' or the 'Four Spiritual Laws', or the 'Romans Road'?

He seemed to meet felt needs, but then again, not always. He didn't help everyone. Not by a long shot.There must have been people he turned away.Sometimes he just told stories, or knocked down tables, or got in a boat and helped people catch fish.

He didn't hold meetings where you had to 'raise your hand' or 'come forward' or 'make a decision'.

Where have we gone wrong? Are we really His followers?

I'm not trying to blow our mind, just disturb it a little.

What's the point anyway?

I'd welcome your comments.
