Throw Out the Playbook

A few weeks ago, I heard a pastor on television say that the “clock determines the play”. At beginning of the ball game, the coach sticks to the standard plays, but with a few minutes to the end of the game and a few points needed to win, the coach needs to throw out the playbook and do something radical and unexpected by the other team. He said the players need to put their bodies on the line.

The pastor applied this to the current situation in New Zealand, but his proposed play was not that radical. It sounded like more of the same.

He is correct that the times are challenging. So, it is probably is time to throw away the modern church playbook and do something radical that will reach our communities. The pastor said the people should put their bodies on the line. I suspect it would be better if the pastors put the body of believers that they control on the line, and let them do something radical for Jesus.
