The Church's Fatal Flaw and The Solution?

It's amazing how just one statement can get you thinking ...

"We must not confuse our destiny with our assignment. Our destiny is to go to heaven but our assignment is to bring heaven to earth". Rob Rufus - "The Blood - Substance or Shadow?" - City Church International, Hong Kong - Sunday 1st June 2008.

Get this right in our thinking and we could CHANGE the world rather than SURVIVE it.

Pleasure! I was driving back from work this morning and he said it ... and the MP3 went on. And then I had to re-wind it and hear it again and again! That's what I love about Rob - he's saturated in statements like this soaked in the Word of God!

'heaven' isn't even our destination... it's the renewed heavens and the renewed earth. Way better than clouds. Creation crys out - life matters.

You should hear Mike Reeves on this stuff.
