Embrace the Discipline of Being Different
Many Christians have become comfortable letting the world mold them instead of being set apart by God. And many churches have traded in their biblical roots for complacent conventionality. But Jesus and the church are anything but conventional. The hallmark of our faith is that it sees the world differently than the world sees itself.
So resist the allure of acceptability. Get back to the unsafe roots of our faith. Be equipped to surprise the world with the Good News it didn’t even know it was waiting for. Challenge the way things are by living a life that has been truly set free by Christ.
Jesus Is Different. Go and Do Likewise.
This book will help you be more weird. But take heart, you’re in great company! Throughout history God has raised up people to challenge and inspire the church from becoming molded in the image of the world around us. We are called to be unique, as individuals, and together as a body. Don’t trade your God-given mandate to be different for comfortable conventionality.
