Wise Words about Relevance

Wise words from David Wayne, the "JollyBlogger," on relevance and the gospel:
All these years I have been in ministry and have been on a constant quest to make the gospel relevant to my hearers.  I now see that as misguided.  The question is not how we can make the gospel relevant to us, but how we can make ourselves relevant to God.  In other words, God defines reality and it is our task to conform our lives to reality as He defines it, not "make Him" relevant to us.  He is always relevant, but we are often irrelevant to Him.
So true.  Pray for David, who has been going through cancer treatments this past year, as well as for Michael Spencer, the iMonk, who has also been recently diagnosed with cancer.
