Quote of the Day

This quote comes from Francis Chan's book Crazy Love (p. 80),

"When I was in high school, I seriously considered joining the Marines; this was when they first came out with the commercials for "the few, the proud, the Marines." What turned me off was that in those advertisements, everyone was always running. Always. And I hate running.

But you know what? I didn't bother to ask if they would modify the rules for me so I could run less, and maybe also do fewer push-ups . . . Somehow this realization does not cross over into our thinking about the Christian life. Jesus didn't say that if you wanted to follow him you could do it in a lukewarm manner. He said, 'Take up your cross and follow me.'"
