Last week I had the opportunity to go hear a few lectures by Dallas Willard. He is the author of The Divine Conspiracy, The Great Omission, and a bunch of other great books. While some many find lectures like this to be a bit boring, it was seriously like a massage for my soul. His central point is that Jesus calls us to discipleship… not believership. I won’t go off here about how the church has gotten that backwards (especially the evangelcial church), but he did share one comment that really stuck with me. He said, “What you really think about Jesus will show when you realize that you don’t have to do anything.”
Today I want to spend time with Him, learning to be like Him.
