Practical vs. ?

Over the first day and almost a half of school, I’ve found that there is a LOT of conversation and discussion on some very deep theological issues. They seem to take a huge chunk of time that we could be spending on other things, but I realize that this is what we are working towards…understanding these issues.

And from that, I find my dilemma.

I want to be able to take this stuff and turn into a practical, actual way to tell people about an amazing God that is so easily and commonly misunderstood. My hope is that from the deep, theological, philosophical conversations comes a bright light, piercing and penetrating of the fresh new way to see God, His Word and His passion for our lives.

In what ways have you found a chasm between what you want to know and how to make that knowledge practical?

    I take my advise from Andy Stanley, and look for the principles in the text. Than take that principle and put it into everyday words.
