What is the heart of the call that faith makes on the life of a believer?
In the early church the highest expression of Christian faith was martyrdom. In the Middle Ages it was monasticism. Since the Reformation it has been Lordship.
Today, the highest expression of faith in Christ is that we make Him Lord of all. May we come humbly to the foot of the Cross and there negotiate the terms of a full surrender to the Lordship of Jesus. That's the deal. Tell your friends. Some of them didn't get the memo.
