It’s time for another installment of “Blogs I Wish I Wrote.” Today’s featured blog comes from Mark at Godgrown. I’ve been following Mark for awhile now and I really appreciate a lot of what he writes. There have been a couple of times where he has taken some topic that has gripped the national headlines and turned it on it’s head in a way that causes me to understand the Gospel or the Kingdom in a new light. In a way it’s quite a bit like how Jesus would use parables in his day to convey divine truth and Mark is pretty good at it. Previously I’ve seen him take the Federal Bailout that recently happened and use it to communicate God’s heart to “bail us out” of our sin.
Today, however, Mark looks at how the church is supposed to possess a message that spreads much like the Swine Flu, and he calls it the Kingdom Flu. Mark not only gives us a good picture for how the message of the Gospel is supposed to spread, but delves into why it’s not and what it would look like if it did. I’m a little jealous of what Jesus taught through Mark today, so it goes on the list of “Blogs I Wish I Wrote.” You can read it here.
