Hi there,

So this is a fairly simple, but genuine question: if we do not need to reinvent the faith, what do we do instead of reinventing it?

There is something we all do, in the spirit - which may be different for everyone - so fundamentally, we should be doing that? Right?

I think for me, its breaking scripture down into digestible chunks - as long as I'm feeding on the Word, I am becoming more practical about what I do do for the Lord? (Not what I don't!)

Does that make sense?

That's a bit of a salad.

Are you sure you're not doing what you're doing for you rather than for the Lord? Sounds like it.

As for the idea of inventing or "reinventing", inventing is of man...it won't fix anything. But do not be dismayed, nothing is in need of fixing that is not being fixed already. This is it. "But each one in his own order" from beginning to end, "the man of sin is revealed." "Then comes the end."
