True Greatness

The Kingdom often presents itself as an inversion, a complete upheaval of all that we’ve come to expect out of life.  I think Jesus’ comments about seeking to save your life in Mark 8 are a perfect example of this.  Francis Chan is a man who seems to be embracing this Kingdom inversion.  A best-selling author and pastor of a mega-church that he founded, Chan has walked away from it all and it seems that one of the key elements of this decision was the fear of the LORD.  Consider his comments from a recent interview:

If we were to meet God in person, Chan said, “I think the first thing He would say is you don’t take me seriously. You have no idea how to fear me.”

CNN just did an interview with Francis – it’s inspiring to see someone walk away from everything this world tells us we should be pursuing! (read the whole story here)
