The first Christian church was not full of Christians. They were first called "People of The Way" or "Followers of The Way." This came from John 14 where Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the light." The term "Christians" came later, and was a label put on them by the non-Christian world.
Society was a severely divided entity when The Way started. The Way was ridiculed for rejecting the way of the world around them and for embracing The Way of Jesus, a way in which there was no division by race, gender, age, and so on. To be part of The Way required one thing only: a commitment to the mission of Jesus Christ.
By definition, that commitment required a devotion to the Christian community. Fellow Christians shared support, accountability, and Christ-like love. Even Peter was once admonished for refusing to eat dinner with Gentiles who were part of The Way.
Jesus still is and forever will be The Way. Yet ours is a post-Christian nation because Christians have rejected a commitment to The Way, not because secular society has rejected Jesus.
What would happen if PLC recommitted to being People of The Way? Could we embrace the hallmarks of accountability and boundary-busting? Could we root our lives in weekly worship and life-long Christian education? Could we rein in our egos and renounce our lust for worldly goods and society's affirmations? I wonder.
God will always work through his people in powerful, transforming ways. But his people must choose to follow his ways for this to happen. God works through us and with us, and often in spite of us. But God chooses to not work without us. God calls us to be God’s co-workers.
As we move forward in 2022, let's strive to be rejected by the world and accused of following The Way.
