Kennewick First United Methodist Church

This gorgeous old church in downtown Kennewick is where my oldest daughter got married a dozen years ago.

I took this picture back in 2012 but realized I could make the sky pop a little bit better than I had back 2 years ago. I did not swap it out but just found a way to pull the blue out from sky rather than the default gray that the HDR process likes to create.

David Platt.

You and I can choose to continue with business as usual in the Christian life and in the church as a whole, enjoying success based on the standards defined by the culture around us. Or we can take an honest look at the Jesus of the Bible and dare to ask what the consequences might be if we really believed him and really obeyed him.

Page: 9

Platt opens the book promising a clear cut picture of what it means to really follow Jesus, an honest look at “the Jesus of the Bible,” and the consequences. His statement presupposes that we don’t know this Jesus, don’t follow him, and don’t obey him but that this book will straighten out the American church if it will just follow his prescription.

If I seem to get a little defensive as I read this book, can I point my finger and say, “He started it”?
