‘People are going to lie to you, and much of what they say you will want to be true. But unless you know God’s Word deeply and lovingly you will be dead in the water and marching down many a blind alley. Get alone. Study. Meditate. Obey. Endure. Live. And do not sign up for the ordinary.’ (1 Kings 22 and 2 Timothy 4: 2-5 and Amos 7 and Acts 7)
Thank you Francis Chan for your loving honesty to these young people; to us.

The power comes in that tight place when one has left the comfort of the pew and gone out into that world to make disciples of the Lion of Judah…and unflinchingly.
