Francis Chan, pastor of Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, Calif. and author of Crazy Love, was one of the featured speakers during Youth Ministry Conclave, sponsored by Texas Baptists. He said a number of things that challenged me. Today, I’ll post some of them here. I’m curious what you think about what he said.
On following Christ:
It’s weird in following Jesus we’ve changed the rules somehow.
Remember Simon Says? Simon says pat your head, you do it. It’s different in the church . If Jesus says it, all you have to do is memorize it.
Generally speaking, are Christ followers abiding in Christ’s teachings? Have we “changed the rules?” Where are we doing well? Where are we not doing so well?
And what about you, how are you doing in following Christ?
