Who are you?

....was a question that came to my mind while my Sunday School group was discussing evangelism. How so? Well, we talk about the things that are precious to us; how then are we to explain why we do not talk about the One who lived, died, and rose again for us?

Ouch.

Along the same lines, check out NightWriter's comments about an experience he had recently; a conversation about the Gospel with someone who appeared to be intoxicated. Often, we take a look at the number of churches, and the number of cars in the parking lots, and we assume that certain areas (say the South, or urban minority areas, or whatever) are heavily evangelized.

Look closer, though. Does discipleship really look like that? Does it really look like your home, either?

I always liked Wesley's two responses to the "Who are you?" question in "The Princess Bride":

1) I'm no one of any consequence, and

2) I'm no one to be trifled with.

What if we could believe and say the same things about ourselves?
