I recently read a powerful book by Nate Bramsen titled “What If Jesus Meant What He Said?”. The main message of the book was clear: following Jesus will cost us something. There is no shortcut when it comes to the gospel. There was no easy way out for Christ; He gave it all for the sake of the world. Similarly, there is no shortcut for us as we live our lives and seek to spread the gospel. Please pray that we would remember this truth as we train the men to live out the gospel in a world that cuts corners wherever it can.
