Viral Jesus

Matt. 20:1-6

Viral Jesus: Recovering the Contagious Power of the Gospel by Ross Rohde. This book calls us to return to the explosive, viral movement of the early Christian church–the movement that was spread by knowing Jesus of Nazareth as a person.  It speaks to evangelism by each individuals, and shatters the concept of our large church buildings that simply drain our money from ministry. For me this book speaks to what is needed for ministry to take place: each individual experiencing the presence of the Risen Christ in their lives and sharing that presence.  It speaks to me of the need to move beyond our buildings into the street. Our institutional church is dying because it has become a lifeless institution, rather then on a living relationship with Jesus of Nazareth. Rather then have “strategic planning sessions”, we should have prayer sessions talking to Jesus, letting him lead us. Calling us to take a chance and share the Good News.   This book calls us to see Jesus as one who loves us, and calls us to share his Good News in the highways, by ways of life. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
