“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” - The words of Jesus
“What Jesus calls us to in the Kingdom of God is not a religiously modified version of the self-preservation and self-promotion value systems which govern the empires of men.” - The words of Brian Zahnd
Brian Zahnd sealed the deal for me in one minute of his fourth sermon on the subject of forgiveness. It was one of those moments when you stop whatever you are doing – in this case, running on the treadmill - and try to find the closest item to either write with or record with. Time will tell, but Zahnd’s words were like the brush stroke that only the artist would know is necessary to bring depth and dimension to a working canvas.
