I’m inspired by sold-out discipleship, even more after the lecture and forum today with Eric Metaxas, who spoke of Bonhoeffer’s deep devotion to Jesus.
Bonhoeffer didn’t just preach radical discipleship; he modeled it in his personal life as a follower of Jesus and in his public life as a courageous church leader. I am challenged to examine my own level of commitment to Christ and ask what price I would be willing to pay to follow God’s call completely. At a crucial time in the church’s history and in the world’s history, Bonhoeffer boldly rejected what he called “cheap grace” – mere belief without sacrificial action.
I’m impatient to get through Metaxas’ book now! 1595551387
