In the book “Multiply”, Francis Chan writes:
Is is critical that you understand the story of Jesus, but understanding the story is not enough. It is not enough to merely absorb the information – you must respond to it. The message of Jesus’s death and resurrection demands something of us. Jesus continues to call people – He calls you and me – to follow Him and live, even if it cost us everything. Christ death and resurrection should give us confidence in the salvation he offers.
Points to Ponder:
- Are you only absorbing the information from God’s Word or are you responding to HIS Word?
- The message of Jesus’s death and resurrection demands something from you? What is it?
- Are you willing to give us everything for the furtherance of the gospel?
