How sad . . .

I’ve come to the conclusion that a frighteningly large percentage of people warming the pews of our churches care little about Christ. They care about preserving their comfort and predictability. They protect their little domains as though their lives depend on it. They tolerate the reading of the Bible and teaching found in church as long as it makes them feel good. But woe to any who would dare threaten them by telling the truth.

I don’t want to be that kind of person. I want to follow Jesus with such passion that I’m too caught up in chasing him that I worry at all about what others think of me. I want to obey him out of love and not duty. I want to use my God-given gifts of leadership to serve others in strength and push, pull, and hassle them into pursuing God honestly. I want to shake people up enough that they really look at what a lame excuse for living they are settling for.
