Take a course of action.

Re Sovereign Grace, February

A Christian is a member of the body of Christ; or a disciple who follows the example of Jesus. We should look to Jesus to know the nature of God. However, our image or understanding of Jesus is often a bit laundered. We have made Jesus more comforting and less challenging, often with the help of church words. Jesus adulation is a regular feature of Sunday worship, delivered as a sandwich without the crust. The crust is that a Christian is constrained to follow the example of Jesus. This cannot be done without taking up the cross or taking courses of action that will have some considerable expense to the self.
