One of the biggest mistakes that people make when it comes to living the Christian life is trying to live it incompletely. There are no part-way Christians; every aspect of the Christian life must be touched when the Gospel becomes involved. This total surrender of our lives to Christ is the beauty and burden of the Gospel. Here at ALERT, we train men to see what a gospel-centered life looks like, and precisely what the cost is. As G. K. Chesterton once said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried.” We train men to live a gospel-saturated life so that wherever they are called by Christ, they know with faith and conviction what kind of life they are being called to.
