No one could ever accuse Jesus of being a great public-relations guy. Who else but Jesus would make it His practice to disperse crowds with difficult and controversial teachings when it would have been so easy to rally an army? Who else but Jesus would choose to continually insult the power structure of His time rather than try to make influential friends in high places? Who else but Jesus would align Himself with the lowest and the least of His society, those with no political clout or social standing? But that's what Jesus did. That's what He's still doing. Perhaps with all of our educational advancements, the multiplicity of Bible studies and books available to us, and the abundance of churches in many parts of the world, we've forgotten that following Jesus isn't like choosing which flavor of syrup you want in your coffee. The call to follow Jesus is a call to forsake everyone and everything other than Him. It's a call to a radical abandonment. David Platt is President of the Southern Baptist International Missions Board.
