Positional Perspective

Our positions in life sometime never come in the manner pleasing to our own desire. God will place us where He needs us; at the appointed time He needs us to affect change in a person or person’s life for His glory.

Our lives should continually be examined through a biblical worldview and count it all joy no matter the current situation. Look at the message in the book of Philippians. Paul is in chains and he is thanking his friends and speaking about joy.

Philippians 1:13-14 So that it became evident to the whole palace guard, and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.

Our perspective has to be both vertical and horizaontal! Keep the cross in your sights!

Joseph, Hananiah, Azariah, Mishael, Daniel, & Apostle Paul all had a positional perspective that God was their focus no matter their situation. In each of their lives they were able to influence those around them because they maintained a vertical and horizontal focus.

Evangelico Manifesto

An Introduction

Jun 13, 2006 by Vulputate

An Evangelical Manifesto is an open declaration of who Evangelicals are and what they stand for. It has been drafted and published by a representative group of Evangelical leaders who do not claim to speak for all Evangelicals, but who invite all other Evangelicals to stand with them and help clarify what Evangelical means in light of “confusions within and the consternation without” the movement. As the Manifesto states, the signers are not out to attack or exclude anyone, but to rally and to call for reform.

As an open declaration, An Evangelical Manifesto addresses not only Evangelicals and other Christians but other American citizens and people of all other faiths in America, including those who say they have no faith. It therefore stands as an example of how different faith communities may address each other in public life, without any compromise of their own faith but with a clear commitment to the common good of the societies in which we all live together.

For those who are Evangelicals, the deepest purpose of the Manifesto is a serious call to reform—an urgent challenge to reaffirm Evangelical identity, to reform Evangelical behavior, to reposition Evangelicals in public life, and so rededicate ourselves to the high calling of being Evangelical followers of Jesus Christ.
