rediscovering Jesus

Hi, and welcome to my blog! I’m Asher, and if this your first time here, this is a great place to start.

This generation is leaving the church in droves like never before. And unlike many critics think, it’s not because they are walking away from the faith. In fact, most of the ones leaving want more than what they see in church today. They are studying their Bibles and it’s because they want to live out what they see in Scripture they want more than what Christianity seems to be offering.

And because the church is failing to meaningfully engage them and empower them to grow, they are quietly walking away.

If you identify yourself as one of those who want more, more than what you see in church today, more than what you feel in your relationships, even more than what you experience with God, you are like most of my readers.

You’re probably a bit frustrated. You see a lot of “branded Christianity” and not much authentic faith like you read about in the New Testament. It seems that people give only cliché answers and tip-toe around the complex, but crucial faith questions.

In fact, relationships may seem to be super shallow in the church, and you begin wondering what the point of it all is.

Maybe you’ve never told anyone about what you’re feeling. Maybe you fear what others would think if you’re honest about what you’re frustrated with. The only thing that keeps you going is you see Jesus teaching something different.

You are convinced Christians should be the most life-filled, loving people around. Yeah, the state of Christianity, today, bothers you, but you’re convinced there’s got to be more. . .

. . .and so you’re searching.

You’re not alone. You’re not overly idealistic.

Scripture shows us there’s more. I’ve experienced it. Maybe you have too. At least a taste of it.

I love Jesus, and I love His people. Which is why it grieves me that so many of those who want more, those who want to know Jesus in His fullness and be more effective in connecting others with Him, like you, get ostracized and written-off. I don’t think people always intend to ostracize you, but maybe they’re just not sure what to say or do because you’re questioning how they’ve always done Christianity.

I believe the Spirit of God is moving among this generation. He is calling us to walk in obedience and faith to Him, even when it runs against the grain of everything we know. He’s calling us to bring our frustrations before Him, to let Him tear down our faulty structures and rebuild us from the ground up on an unmovable foundation: Jesus Christ.

Our purpose on this blog is to rediscover Jesus.

In a world of so many stripes of Christianity, or as I like to call it, “branded Christianity,” we want to find Jesus and know Him. Be who He has made us. Live as He calls us to live. Love with His love.

Here at this blog, you are free to ask hard questions.

We are all on a journey, and we have different forms of discussion and community you can explore in order to journey with us. I send out weekly posts addressing everything that has to do with faith, God, Jesus, theology, relationships, family, church, current events, and much more. I do a number of book reviews and have even started interviewing people. I refuse to give cliché answers. In each of these posts, we wrestle as deeply as we can with what it means and looks like to be transformed by Jesus. You can subscribe to the blog and be the first to find out about each new post.

I love interacting with my readers, so I welcome feedback whether in the comments or in reply to my emails. You can even join me on Social Media, if you’re there. I have a Facebook Page, Twitter Page, LinkedIn Page, and even an Instagram Feed. Although I limit my time in each, I’d love to connect with you there. Every now and then I have specifically Social Media events such as a monthly Facebook Live video where we discuss topics of interest to you.

aw_millennialchristiansIf this is what you’re looking for, I invite you to join the journey by subscribing to the blog. When you do, as your first gift, I’ll give you my eBook, 3 Kinds of Millennial Christians. This book addresses three different types of millennials in the church today and offers a piece of advice for each.

That’s just the beginning of the journey. As a subscriber, you’ll get in on a number of different resources and content available for those who want more.

However, if you’re not interested in yet another person filling up your inbox, I completely understand. You can still access all of my blog articles here at this site. You can also still connect with me on Social Media and you’ll be able to find out about other resources and events through those channels.

Why don’t I just give you a few articles to get started with? These are some of the ones my readers have liked the most.

And if you’d like to learn more about me personally, you can read my story here. Or just email me at asher at asherwitmer dot com.

I’m confident through the resources on this blog you’ll experience Jesus at a deeper level. You’ll find healing from wounds, discover where you belong and are loved, and realize greater purpose in life.

Join the journey today so you don’t have to be frustrated anymore. Together, we’ll go from wanting more to living more.
