Sunday we started a brand new series called Radical. This is by far the toughest and most challenging series we have done at Connection Church. The series is based on the book. The book challenges the Americanized Jesus we’ve come to know and follow. Just check out this short video from David Platt and see if it doesn’t rock your thinking a bit.
Over the next 3 weeks we will be wrestling with this together. And I do mean together. Even as a pastor this series is really challenging my thinking and the radical commitment Jesus called and calls his followers to make. Truth is, I’m a bit nervous that this radical call will cause some to say, “no thanks” and walk away. After all, when Jesus said some of these things he went from 1,000’s following to just 12.
If you missed Sunday’s message you can listen to it here. I’ve heard everything from “I love it” to “I am really depressed by it.” What are your thoughts? What is God speaking to you? I really want us to wrestle with this together.
