This blog is all about the audacity of Jesus.
Each post will explore some things that Jesus said and did that made people say, “You have got to be kidding me! Who do you think you are!?” I hope the reflections will elevate your vision of Jesus. I hope they will obliterate the safe, tame Jesus we like to imagine and replace him with the Jesus we encounter in the Gospels. I hope they will remove “polite approval” from the list of options available to you as ways to respond to Jesus, and that you will never again be satisfied with giving Jesus a nice golf clap. As we look together at the outrageous things Jesus said and did, may we find ourselves inspired by his courage. May we find ourselves offended by his bluntness. May we encounter him in all of his audacious splendor!
