Methodist Doctrine, Spirit, Discipline: The Leisured Heart

Original post at http://formandpower.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-leisured-heart.html


Another excerpt from Victorious Living by E. Stanley Jones.  The idea of being inwardly adjusted to the will of God appeals to me.  It brings to mind Luke 12 where Christ teaches his disciples that being rich towards God is the opposite of anxiously pursuing possessions.

Methodist Doctrine, Spirit, Discipline: Sung Repentance

Original post at http://formandpower.blogspot.com/2014/09/sung-repentance.html


Repentance in the style of Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens.  What's your style?  

Mine usually takes the form of a mental rundown of the most recent examples of my finitude.  Lately that's meant a confession that I don't have God's perspective and don't know how my contribution fits into the whole.  This uncertainty is frustrating and humbling.  Instead of getting stuck in uncertainty, I ask for help to move forward in trust.  In other words, my attitude moves from Repentance to Faith.

Methodist Doctrine, Spirit, Discipline: The Powerful Spirit of Methodism

Original post at http://formandpower.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-powerful-spirit-of-methodism.html


After finishing, The Word Became Flesh, I stared another E. Stanley Jones devotional.  About ten weeks into the daily readings, I realized that Jones was presenting a paraphrase of Wesley's teachings on Christian Perfection.  Below is an excerpt.  See if you don't agree with me that this is Christian Perfection in the vernacular of  the Twentieth Century.

Finding new ways to explain Methodist Doctrine, Spirit, and Discipline is one of the goals of this blog.  What do you think of the twist Jones puts on the doctrine of entire sanctification?
