Kinesic Jesus

Last week I attended the 2009 Annual FACAP Seminar. This is a seminar that brings together attorneys, insurance executives, private/public fire investigators, and law enforcement to learn and stay updated on arson prevention and investigation issues/developements.

One of the workshops I attended was called "Kinesic Interviews", it was all about reading people. How to tell if the person you are talking to or interviewing is lying, stressed, anxious, etc. It was a really good class.

The thing that struck me the most was this quote from the instructor, "The body was not meant to lie", it's not a natural thing for us to lie. When people do lie, their body language reveals that, the inner stress caused from lying, is released through physical means.

This truly shows the love that our Heavenly Father has for us as humans. He longs for us so much, and wants us to be in Heaven with Him, that our bodies cannot stand to sin. When we do sin, it goes against our very nature.

Preaching in the Spirit (Self-Discovery)

All too often we preach about history and abstract values when we should be able to say, "The Word of God has come alive for me. Here's what it says about me and to me!" That's the point of being biblical in our preaching: We must present the Bible not only as the Word of God, but as the Word of God about us. Biblical preaching involves more than reciting and explaining the text. Most evangelical preachers can quote significant portions of Scripture, but that is not enough; Scripture must be presented in such a way that it speaks to the needs of the person who hears it. That can occur only through the enlightening power of the Holy Spirit. When the Spirit's internal revelation breaks into the preacher's mind and attends his preacing, it has the potential for radically transforming people's lives.
