Daring to Ask For More

Sunday, December 5, 2010| Message byEric Ludy
There is a common spiritual ache that bonds those of us at Ellerslie together, and that is the longing for more of Jesus Christ. We all, at various points within our spiritual journeys, have wondered if what we see of modern Christianity is all God intended it to be. The question, "Is there more to this thing called Christianity?" pokes at us all. And here in Windsor, Colorado, we have come to the conclusion that there is a lot more of Jesus to be had. We ask daily for Christ to increase within us, to expand our love, to enlarge our faith, and to increase our strength, courage, and daring. We want to make sure that there isn't one single crumb of promise that was blood-purchased at the Cross that goes unrecognized. So, this naturally begs the question, "Is our request and expectancy for more actually in concert with Scripture?"
