No Dull Disciple

No Dull Disciple

The most critical issue facing Christians is dullness. We've lost our astonishment. The Good News is now just okay news. Christianity is no longer life changing, it's life enhancing. Jesus doesn't change people into wild-eyed radicals anymore, He changes them into "nice people."

What happened to the un-nice brand of Christianity that turned the world upside-down? … To the gospel that spread through the first century like wildfire and was considered (by those in power) dangerous? … To the kind of Christians whose hearts were on fire, spoke the truth no matter the consequence, and weren't afraid to follow Jesus wherever He went?

Is that all Christ died for is to make us really nice, smiley, easy-going and fun people to get along with?
