LAVISH LOVE: How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (I John 3:1 NIV)

What Kind of Christian Are You?

ImageI’ve been reading “Tortured for Christ” by Richard Wurmbrand (1909-2001), a minister who endured fourteen years of Communist imprisonment and torture in his homeland of Romania. Today, I’m pondering this quote from his book:

“In a letter smuggled out secretly, the Underground Church said, ‘We don’t pray to be better Christians, but that we may be the only kind of Christians God means us to be: Christlike Christians, that is, Christians who bear willingly the cross for God’s glory.'”

Then Jesus called his disciples and the crowds to come over and listen. “If any of you wants to be my follower,” he told them, “you must put aside your selfish ambition, shoulder your cross, and follow me. If you try to keep your life for yourself, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will find true life.” Mark 8:34-35 (NLT)
