When Jesus invited us to follow him, he wasn’t inviting us to a tea party; rather, he was giving us the opportunity to be involved in the most radical transformation of mankind that had ever been conceived.We were to be world-changers.
Somewhere along the way the American church lost the directive. We became lost in the wilderness of “sanctification.” We misunderstood the call to “go” by deciding to “stay.” We replaced purpose with exclusivity. We erected the scaffolding of tradition and mistook it for truth.
We have become world-maintainers.
Is it possible to change or have we missed the boat?
