I was looking for a book this morning and I came across some notes I wrote on a flight back from Houston, TX. The notes were reflections of mine that I had about being a Christ-follower. I thought I would share.

* Did not have buildings
* Did not have full scripture
* Did not have technology
* Did not have paid staff
* Did not start with strong organization (it developed)

These ordinary men rocked our world. Not because they had finances or resources, but because they simply were Christ-followers. I want to be that kind of Christian. I may not understand all the theology out there. I may not be able to quote in the Hebrew/Greek. I will probably never get an honorary doctorate. But I can be a Christ-follower!
My prayer is that Christ would be our cause and we would be committed to compassionate community – in the church and out.
