I don't know if this will be a 4, 5, or 6 week series. I'm still working on the details. But here are some examples that I would like to tackle for the series.
- God is My Co-Pilot: I really can't stand this bumper sticker. Let's face it, God asks for our total surrender. Galatians 2:20 calls us to be crucified so Christ can live through us. God was our whole lives. We are not Co-pilots with God. God should be in the pilot's/captain chair all by Godself.
- Christians Are Perfect- Just Forgiven: Certainly there is some sense of truth in this bumper sticker. We are forgiven. Yet many times we fall into what Bonhoffer called "cheap grace" where we are forgiven but nothing really changes. The world sees us claiming to be Christian, yet living worldly because there has been no significant change in our life. God desire is for us to pursue holiness as God is holy. This does not mean we are perfect. It means that we are striving each day to be more Christlike in our words, actions, and deeds.
Those are some examples of where the series is going.
I need your help: What are some of your favorite (or least favorite, depending on how you look at it.) Christian slogans, bumper stickers, or T-shirts? Talk it out in the comment section.
