I wanted to clarify one really important fact from our study in David Nasser’s book A Call to Die. It would be pretty easy to over-analyze what Nasser is saying and angrily declare that he wants us to become a monk or a nun. Not that being a monk or a nun is a bad thing, but Nasser’s whole purpose in writing his book was to encourage everyday Christ-followers to make Jesus their number one priority. He isn’t telling us to go sell everything we own, dress in rags, and shave our heads (uh, no….I would have stopped reading the book a LONG time ago if that is what he wanted us to do!). A Call to Die is a plea for us to live the Romans 12:2 lifestyle–“Do not be conformed any longer to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–His good, pleasing, and perfect will.”
Be encouraged….Jesus loves you just as you are!
