Be a Connector

God is constantly looking for willing people to be His connectors to the world. To be a true and powerful connector, you must first touch the heart of God. The good news is that He wants you to touch His heart. He promises that if you come near to Him, He’ll come near to you (James 4:8). If you make the effort, He’ll ensure you make the connection.
The connection I’m referring to lies beyond information about God (which is good) or even giving your heart to Him through His Son, Jesus (which is even better). What I’m referring to is intimacy (which is best): knowing God’s heart and pursuing heart-to-heart exchanges with Him.

Importance of Unity

Immediately following Christ’s return to heaven, the church in Jerusalem emerged as a direct answer to Jesus’ prayer. Their unity was profound. Luke recorded, “And day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart” (Acts 2:46, NASB). And later Luke added, “All the believers were one in heart and mind” (Acts 4:32).

The Intelligent Choice

The rift between biblical Christianity and secular intellectualism has been simmering for a long time, even boiling over in public debates now and then.
For a time, during my own crisis of faith, I was a self-proclaimed “intellectual snob.” I was heavily influenced by my secular college community, especially a philosophy professor whose dismissive attitude toward God was summed up in the statement, “You’re smart. You’ll figure it out.”
