Just say yes

When Bob Roberts asked Loren Cunningham what he thought it would be like to stand before God after all of the impact he’s had on the world, here’s what happened:

It became real quiet for a few minutes while Loren answered in typical humble Loren fashion, “Oh, I don’t know, I just said yes. All I did was obey. God spoke and I said yes. Maybe He asked 1,000 people before me, I was just the one who said yes–maybe I didn’t know any better.”

When I think about following God – personally and as a church – I tend to think a lot about methods. We need to connect to God, each other, and the world. We need to proclaim the truth and live the truth. And while all of those things are good, the most important step in the Christian life is simple. Say yes to God.
