Culturally Relevant

The term "culturally relevant" is a term that has been used and abused in today's church. I believe when properly understood it is seen in the life of Christ. Think about this. What culture did Christ leave? What culture did Christ come to? Did Christ continue to use the culture of heaven?

As you think about these questions, also think about how Christ leveraged the culture that he came to. His goal was Biblical Transformation (see last post) but He accomplished that within the culture of Israel. Let's model our lives after Christ, understand that we must go to, communicate with and serve the culture that is in front of us.
