Risk-Taking Adventure!

Reading God's Word out loud in public in San Francisco amidst listeners and hecklers

(Desiring that )…” your life and ministry would have a radical flavor, a risktaking flavor, a gutsy, countercultural wartime flavor that makes average American people in your church uncomfortable! …A strange mixture of tenderness and toughness that keeps people a little bit off balance… a pervasive summons to something… hazardous, a saltiness, a brightness… like Jesus. Salt and light…a joyful embrace of suffering…”

~John Piper

Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate. Hence, let us go out to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach. Hebrews 13:12-13.

  1. Please take the time to listen to this “must hear” sermon of exhortation and encouragement in radical, risky, dangerous, courageous, confident, sacrificial, joyful living and ministry in the service of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  2. hey Wayne, this is one awesome conference talk. Pass it around. Btw, the pic is of Jessi, reading 1John on the 4th, for Project Ezra.

    May your service for Christ be radical, courageous and joyful!

  3. Looking at this I wanted to shout, “You go girl!” I’m so excited to see the stirring of hearts towards true Biblical Christianity. The gospel is our mission!

  4. Jenny amen! With the enemy attacking with Emergent christian universalism, circus (easy/fun/pop psych) christianity, and the false prosperity gospel, I see God responding with hot revival towards Biblical Christianity, boldly proclaiming the true Gospel, and greater courage among the saints, even as “seeds of persecution” begin to sprout up.
