A Hill to Die On

There are many Pastors and leaders today who I don't completely agree with on points of theology and doctrine, but I still follow, learn from and absolutely admire them.

Mark Batterson says in his newest book Primal, "As Christians, we are often known more for what we are against than for what we are for."  This should not be so.  Let's renew our commitment to focus more on unity and love than on the things that divide us.

Jesus' final prayer for his disciples and for the Church in the Gospel of John was focused on our unity, not on our theological hills.  He prayed that we would point people to him by the way we love each other.

After all that is only hill worth dying on.  And God decided that a long time ago when he sent his only Son Jesus to die on that hill for us all.
