We like things tough. At least we seem to, and maybe that’s a mark of our generation. We want to live deeply, think deeply, experience deeply. And while that might mean a little something different to everybody, as a whole, it seems to mean that we want to engage the Bible and God at a level that moves well past the surface. That’s the underlying reason behind these Bible studies, The Tough Sayings of Jesus I and II. I firmly believe it is by asking questions that we get a bigger and more intimate glimpse of Christ. It’s great to see how well The Tough Sayings have been received across the country. My hope and prayer continues to be that these Bible studies challenge the way we think and walk with Christ. Things seem to be moving that direction.
Check out this link to a video from my new friends out in California at Magalia Pines Baptist Church. From their video, it seems like they’ve got Tough Sayings, and also food. Which is good.
