Culture in Christ

  • By Chanda J. Charles
God's awesome work of creation culminated in the planting a garden and the placement of a special calling for man: to be fruitful and multiply, and to have dominion over the earth. It is from this incredible foundation that author Chanda Charles begins her study of culture. In Culture in Christ, Chanda shows that the Garden of Eden was God's means to flourish and reproduce a harvest of godly people in relationship with Him. Unfortunately, since man's Fall, God's people have lived in a binary of two cultures: the culture of Christ, and the culture of the world. Using the analogies of agricultural cultivation found in the book of Genesis and Jesus's parables, Culture in Christ portrays that we can choose to live for God abundantly, or we can choose to cultivate a life of destruction. With a message of flourishing and hope, Chanda demonstrates that through the vine of life, Jesus Christ, we can be planted in Christ's garden. Then, God is able to root us in His will, teaching us to grow in His culture. With the guidance of His Spirit and Word, we can reproduce seeds of righteousness, overtaking the weeds and flourishing in the garden for His glory. We can also know that in the end, He will establish His Garden with a new earth where the fruits of the Spirit will be evident to all. Embark on a life-changing journey with Culture in Christ as you learn to embrace and exemplify Christ's culture by walking in the Spirit *** The premise today is "we are born that way." Yes, I was born in sin and placed into this dark world. But, I chose to abandon the ways of this world and to embrace the Culture of Christ. I am God's testimony and example of His amazing love, grace and mercy for anyone. No matter how dark and deep your sins, you too can be rooted and grounded into a brand-new culture. I accepted Christ and thus His culture and have grown from a seedling into a tree that has been planted by the rivers of waters. I am now matured, bearing fruit, not for myself but for others to become grafted into God's garden of life through the True Vine, Jesus Christ. This book, however, is not about me but about God and His seed placed in the Earth since the beginning of time which continues to do its reproductive work within me to reproduce a harvest of blessings. Be fruitful and Multiple
