Lambs in the Midst of Wolves (Luke 10:1-11, 10-20)
Here’s the thing: All the bumper stickers laid end to end, all the electric guitars and synthesizers stacked to the sky, all the studied beauty of grinning ministers in the world can’t make Jesus cool. Jesus isn’t cool—he’s the embodiment of the God's desires for humanity; the church’s job isn’t to sell him—it’s to live like him.
The gospel is pretty clear: Some will respond; some won’t. And that's the difficult part—being sent like lambs into the midst of wolves makes us vulnerable, it reveals the fact that we're not in charge. It demonstrates that the only control we have is whether or not we're going to live like Jesus said to live.
