Live as Followers of Jesus. This is the most urgent call upon God's people. The most indicting critique against the church is its failure to do so. But here is the promise extended to us by Mark Labberton, president of Fuller Seminary: Living and practicing who and why we are is our Christian vocation whenever and wherever we may be. Will you answer the call?
"read if you care about your calling"
What's at stake in our worship? Everything. In this prophetic wake-up call for the contemporary Church, Mark Labberton reconnects Christian worship with biblical justice. From beginning to end, worship must pursue justice and righteousness, translating into transformed lives that care for the poor and the oppressed. Labberton shows how to move beyond the comfort of safe worship to authentic worship that is awake to the needs of the world.
Seeing rightly, says Mark Labberton, is the beginning of how our hearts are changed. Through careful self-examination in the Spirit, we begin to bear the fruit of love toward others. Here is a chance to reflect on why our ordinary hearts can be complacent about the evils in the world, and how we can begin to see the world like Jesus.
