Follow the God Who is There
By modest estimate, more than a quarter of the United States population has professed an evangelical conversion experience. Many surveys find it to be much higher than that. Well, don’t you think that a pound of meat would be affected by a quarter pound of salt? If you were to eat a pound of meat with a quarter pound of salt, that salt would pretty much be all you tasted! Well, why isn’t the quarter pound of salt, the evangelical Christian church, having that sort of effect? Because we haven’t been willing to leave behind, as Jesus said, “All we have,” and “Our own life also” to follow Jesus.
