When you think of someone as a radical, what do you mean? The dictionary defines radical as something basic or fundamental. It comes from the Latin word meaning "root." Would it be an overstatement to say that someone with a genuine faith in Jesus Christ must be a radical?
Do you have a conversion story? Is there a specific moment in your past where you accepted Jesus into your life? Or was your faith a process? A series of events? Whether your beliefs took shape over time or in an instant . . .
Romans 3:23 states, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” No matter how hard we try, we’ll never reach the standard of perfection. On our own, we’ll never pass the test. But there’s hope for those who are willing to accept God’s gift of grace!
