Mavericks & Misfits
with Jeff Lyle
With all the mixed signals being sent out about God’s Kingdom, we need a spot to land and a place to live in the faith. Standing in front of Jesus, Pilate asked the epic question, “What is truth?” He wasn’t the last person to wonder. Amidst all the fading trends and fossilized traditions that pass themselves off as Christianity, many Jesus-followers find themselves spiritually homeless, living without a tribe to which they can connect. There has to be a landing spot for mavericks and misfits – a place they can call their home. Jeff Lyle, a self-declared church maverick and ministry misfit, hosts this podcast in order to cut through through all the incomplete, inaccurate and inadequate expression of modern Christianity. In the end, for all mavericks and misfits looking for God’s answers to life, eternity, relationships, culture and theology… home should always be where the truth is.
Episode 115: Our Ignorance At The Altar
When people come forward during altar calls at the end of Christian gatherings, most come seeking something which they need from the Lord. They come in faith. They often come in desperation. Some come forward, compelled by the Spirit of God to receive something for which He has given them hunger. We all come forward with a need, and there is nothing wrong with any of that.
Unless we are coming in ignorance about what is required for what we want to receive.
In this episode of #MavericksAndMisfits, Jeff addresses the misconception that the best things in the Christian experience can come via an in-the-moment impartation from some spiritual leader. While impartation carries validity in the kingdom, most people ignorantly view it as some “holy zap” that transmits something valuable to from one who has paid the cost to one who has never even considered the cost. This episode calls us to increase our hunger, consider the costs associated and then to pay the full price to receive all that God has for us.
