“What if Christians became known not for how LIKE the world they have become, but for how UNLIKE the world they have become through love and good deeds?”
That’s only one of the sentences from Scott Sauls’ newest book, ‘Irresistible Faith,’ but it’s the core of it altogether. Scott joins Ryan on this week’s episode of indoubt and gives some insight on how we can stand out in our faith. In the episode, Scott talks about how we can get our minds right to have Jesus Christ as our #1 focus; how we need to plant ourselves in a firm community with like-minded people, and; how to embrace our work and home-life as our mission field. Our lives are meant to be a pointer to the world to a God who is beautiful, and good, and life-giving, and who has an amazing adventure for anybody who is willing. So, how can we make our lives in Christ be not just different, but irresistible?
