So. A few quick thoughts on something that has been ripping at my mind and wrenching at my heart lately. I have lost many hours of sleep to it without necessarily finding so many answers as I do more questions. But here is my primary question? What does it look like to be a disciple of Jesus Christ? What should life as a Christian look like? I look around and see all these different ideas clashing in culture, in our church sub-culture, in society in general, but in the midst of all these ideas I notice a lack of sufficient answers. Rare is the person that you can look at and say "Wow. They have something different. They must be a Christian." And yet the very term Christian finds its origin back in the 1st century, it's literal meaning is "little Christ". People used it as a derogatory term to make fun of believers in Jesus, or as Luke calls them in Acts, followers of the Way. That last term I think is an interesting one to ponder when on this subject.
