Some of Jesus' instructions sound uncomfortable and are potentially dangerous. We may be initially encouraged by His declaration, ÔÇ£I am sending you out.ÔÇØ But how are we to respond when He then tells us that He is sending us out ÔÇ£like sheep among wolves'?
In light of the words of Jesus, how can modern day believers rest comfortably in the status quo? How can we embrace casual faith in light of the radical commands of Jesus which are anything but casual? Ripken brings decades of ministry experience in some of the most persecuted areas of the world to bear on our understanding of faith in Jesus. The Insanity of Obedience is a call to roll up your sleeves . . . and to follow and partner with Jesus in the toughest places on this planet.
'We have the high privilege of answering Jesus' call to go,' Ripken says. 'But let us be clear about this: we go on His terms, not ours. If we go at all, we go as sheep among wolves.'
