A not-so-hip messageBy Trillia Newbell | May 18th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized | Comments Off on A not-so-hip message
By Trillia Newbell
I’ll admit it, I’m naïve. I’m just now learning about the millennial folks and the apparent desire for bloggers and authors to claim stake in them. I had no idea that we had such a war against biblical femininity and that the word “biblical” was now a dirty word. I’ve been living in a bit of a serve my family, serve my church, and serve my community bubble. And the more I venture out on the web the more I realize my message just isn’t that hip.
I write about what I love: God, family, church (including diversity, unity, woman’s roles), and soon politics. But my message, my number one message is really simple. It’s probably another one of those over used and completely abused verses. People are looking for deeper more relevant stuff but here it is:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him” (John 3:16-17 ESV).
That’s it folks. God sent His Son to die on the Cross, Jesus bore the wrath that I deserved, Jesus died and rose again and now is interceding for his own! Oh what a glorious message! It’s not hip, Christ was not hip, but it saves lives!
As people wander on Women of God magazine, I’m not interested in them finding the next trending topic or the most exciting view point. My heart’s desire is that they’d find the gospel in each page. There will be times for trends here but the main message is not hip and pretty simple.
Thank you for reading,
