Do You Love Jesus?

The Rev. Peter Marty (ELCA)

Talking about Jesus as an idea is a far cry from trusting your life to Jesus, and believing in the concept of God doesn't begin to compare with actually knowing God. Peter Marty calls for a bone-rattling passion for following Christ.

The Sower's Lesson

The Rev. Joseph Evans (PCUSA)

The goal of the sower in Jesus' parable (Matthew 13) was simply to sow seed, and to many he seems careless and wasteful. As followers of Christ, how are we sowing the seeds of our faith?
