QUOTABLES: When Moderation is the Enemy (C.S. Lewis)

“Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.” -C.S. LEWIS

I think we can test our faith commitment by a similar test: Either we are completely disinterested and uninvolved, or we are completely invested in God’s church and mission. The one thing we dare not be is moderately committed church attenders. Of course, the reality is that the American church is by and large comprised of and producing moderately committed church goers. We will be called to account someday — church leaders and attenders alike. May we become fanatics for Jesus once again and “turn the world upside down” for his cause (Acts 17:6). Lord, help us to love you with all our heart, soul, mind and strength — and forsake all others for your Kingdom’s sake. I believe MainStreet is calling people to a higher commitment to Christ and I’m proud to lead this beautiful, messy yet determined community of ragamuffins!
