(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…”

No people. Just you and the Lord. Just you and the Word. Praying. Seeking God. Talking to Him. Crying out to Him. Worshiping Him. Thanking Him. Remembering His works in your life. Remembering His Word to you. Singing songs of praise to Him. Reading the Word. Praying the Word. Preaching to yourself the Word.
There is a lot of deep spiritual truth here in this message. Really good stuff; a wonderful blessing. Listen to it now. Be encouraged.
