What if we embraced—and even encouraged—the craziness in our faith in Christ? Certainly, we need equal measures of wisdom and courage. But too often we speak of “wisdom” as merely an excuse for refusing to jump in and take faith-fueled risks that honor God’s heart. We play it safe, hedge our bets and drift toward comfort and ease—and then wonder why we aren’t seeing the kind of impact we expect in our churches. Our God is not safe, and our Christ is not predictable; shall we follow them in that way?
