just give me Jesus

I know the trend is not new. The one where churches get all caught up in being new and innovative. Trying to find the perfect approach to give people an "experience" on Sunday morning. Unfortunately my church is caught up in that now.

I can appreciate all the hard work that goes into what they are trying to accomplish. I get the theme. But what I can't figure out is why we need a theme? Just give me Jesus.

Let's strip away all the jazz. All the distractions. All the fluff.

Let's peel back all those layers and uncover what it is we're all there looking for. Who it is we're all there looking for....

Just. Give. Me. Jesus.

How true. My church isn't it to the show. In fact, we've been camped out in the book of John since last January--2009! Because we've been pursuing Jesus. and His presence. We grew from 150 to 500--no gimmicks,,,just Jesus.(I'm not stating numbers to boast, more just to say If we lift Him up, He will draw all men to himself.)
So, amen. Jesus is all we need.

We do overdo it sometimes don't we? I miss the simple Nativity scenes at Christmas and things like that.

Beautiful post.
