“The most critical issue facing Christians is not abortion, pornography, the disintegration of the family, moral absolutes, MTV, drugs, racism, sexuality, or school prayer. The critical issue today is dullness. We have lost our astonishment. The good News is no longer good news, it is okay news. Christianity is no longer life changing, it is life enhancing. Jesus doesn’t change people into wild-eyed radicals anymore. He changes them into “nice people”.
… Mike Yaconelli
These words caught my eye this morning. I particularly like “we have lost our astonishment”. Hello! Sounds like these words were meant for me. That’s what I’ll be on the lookout for. It’s like an Easter egg hunt but even better. God has put “astonishing” all around me, but I just need to get back to looking for it. It’s out there, I’ve seen it.
