Radical

The Christian life is nothing short of radical. In this series, we'll look at some of the radical ways that Jesus calls us to live in faith.

In our world today, radicals are avoided. They are those people who are seen as extremists and found in terrorist camps or Star Trek conventions. They stand out as different, hold to views outside the mainstream and act on them. While the tendency in our culture today is to blend in, live your own per- sonal life and not stand out or make any waves, as followers of Jesus we are called to believe and live life differently. We, too, are called to be radical.

As Jesus walked this earth, He had the tendency to draw large crowds who resonated with His teaching. But He would then make these radical state- ments — statements like "take up your cross and follow me," and “any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple." The Gospels are filled with these radical statements, and even today they make us uncom- fortable. Why did He make these radical demands? What did He mean by them? And ultimately, do we understand the great cost for all who call them- selves followers of Christ?
