What Did Jesus Say?

How does it apply to me? Surely it applies to me differently than his original audience. Or does it?

I am always deeply impressed when I read an article about or meet a person who takes the words of Christ literally. So often in our attempts to live wisely and protect ourselves, we inhibit the Gospel and weaken the strength of a life radically lived in light of God’s call and biblical truth.

Should we have more or less faith in our adult lives than we had as children? I should hope we have more – but do we still have that childlike faith? That faith that believes and obeys God for anything? That faith that takes his Word literally?

This individual joins the ranks with other saints who could look just like us.  Read the story of how a man offers his coat to a boy who stole his wallet, and how the boy responds in “A Victim Treats His Mugger Right.”
