You know what’s interesting…
The Gospel doesn’t sound any more crazy and foolish now than it did back then.
I’m thinking about Paul going into temples each week, and then going around talking to the Gentiles. He was persecuted for the notion that someone named Jesus rose from the dead. People stoned him! They murdered the apostles!
And the apostles were not preaching any Gospel different than we are. And they preach with great boldness.
And we have the opportunity to share this news with people all around this great city, all around many places in this world without the threat of death.
What is keeping us? What is holding us back? The Word of God was just as crazy and foolish to people then as it seems to be to people today. Yet we know it is the power of God unto salvation unto those who believe. So why do we tarry?
