“He’s a little off.” This phrase has multiple meanings. My favorite use means that “he’s not completely sane or stable.” Maybe I like that one so much, because it has been said about me!
But as we think about the phrase, it is also instructive for us. How do we know what “sane and stable” really are? We’ve got to have a standard before we can see the deviations from that standard. And when we add in history, culture, language, and science, how do we really ever come to an agreement on what standard can be?
Thankfully, the God Who created our universe left us a blueprint for what is standard. More than that, the Lord Jesus Christ lived out what “sane and stable” truly are. Compared to Him, we’re all more than “a little off!”
We can also be thankful that the same blueprint for what is standard shows us how we can grow towards being “less off.” This Sunday we’ll start a new series that will help us consider that individually and as a church body.
Please join us in person on Sunday at 9:30 for English or 11 for Chinese to hear more! If you can’t make it in person, you can still join us online by going through our website: www.tcbcf.org then hit “watch livestream,” or go directly to our Youtube page.
Speaking of getting together, we will be getting together this Friday night at 6:30 at the church building for game night.
Until we meet again, by God’s grace, may you be “a little less off” this week!
