Nice People or New People

Jesus is a very attractive person on a human level. In our hearts we know that we should be like him. This attraction to Jesus on a natural level will never make us his disciples: he becomes one of our many models or heroes. When he demands exclusive rights to our lives, we begin to back away from him. We are fine with a sentimental faith; we are challenged by a faith that demands our heart, mind, soul and strength. We want to be nice people; we turn away from becoming new people. – Ron Friesen
