- Jesus calls us away from the consumerist values that dominate contemporary North American consciousness.
- He calls us to be merciful, to everyone, regardless of what we would like to think of them.
- Jesus tells us to love our enemies... which probably means we shouldn’t kill them.
- Most important, if we take Jesus seriously, we will realize that meeting the needs of the poor is a primary responsibility for His followers.
Call me crazy but I want to be a guy who lives out those Red-Letters! I want to be the type of Christian that people know what I believe and who I follow, not by the verses that I can throw out by heart, but how my faith plays out in my actions every where I go and with everyone I deal with.
I'm very intrigued and challenged to live a life more in line with being a Red-Letter Christian! I think I'll put down the One-Year Bible for awhile and just read and get into those red letters found in the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Anyone else in? :-)
