The title of this post is provocative, but I really love this quote:
For too long, we’ve called unbelievers to ‘invite Jesus into your life.’ Jesus doesn’t want to be in your life. Your life’s a wreck. Jesus calls you into his life. And his life isn’t boring or purposeless or static. It’s wild and exhilarating and unpredictable. — Russel D. Moore, Christianity Today
When we think about entering into Jesus’s life we begin to get an idea of the scope of the change in our lives that Jesus is proposing.
