Find Your Humanity Outside of Yourself

In this post, Joel Busby argues that as humans we don’t have to create and market ourselves. He writes, “Inventing yourself, making yourself, finding yourself, and taking yourself to market as if you were a brand exhausts and shackles. Thankfully, our faith offers us an alternative that sets us free.”

Our God-sized Ordinary

“Yes, life in the Spirit — for now — often feels ordinary. We eat and drink, work and sleep, toil and spin, and then do it all again tomorrow. But none of now is the same as it was, not even our morning coffee or our afternoon snack. “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). This glory doesn’t skip meals; it invades them. And who empowers us to eat and drink and do everything for the glory of God? The Spirit.”

Fighting Flat

“When we stand in front of a crowd, which is an unnatural environment, then we have to fight a tendency to become restricted in all types of variation. What seems varied in our minds can sound flat, or monotonous, to our listeners. We have to fight against that flatness to be as engaging as possible.”
