QUOTE: "At some point, to be a Christian you have to transition from ‘come and see’ to ‘go and die.’ That is, you just can’t watch people walk with Jesus; you have to walk with them. You can’t just allow other people to serve you; you need to serve as well… When people start giving their lives to the cause of the gospel, all of those who were playing church stop playing." —Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church, preaching from Luke 6:12-19 on Sunday. Driscoll used examples from the lives of 11 of the disciples, who all suffered intensely or were martyred for their faiths. [marshillchurch.org, 4/11/10]
