What are you tolerating in your life?

John Wesley said: “What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace.”

I am reading a challenging little book called "Radical" by David Platt.   In it he addresses many of Jesus' hard and even harsh statements and shows how the American church has a tendency to water down or even ignore these teachings.  He attempts to show how we have water down the gospel itself and even accept, tolerate and even embrace unbiblical
lifestyles in our churches.  Then this morning I ran across this quote by John Welsey.  How true it is!  Our Peru team is reading and discussing it together.  I see a hunger in all of us to walk closer to Jesus and wrestle with his demands!  These are evidences of God's Spirit working among us.  Get the book.  Read it with an open mind and heart.
