Lukewarm and Lovin’ It

Francis Chan is the teaching pastor of Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, California.  I first heard him speak at the Passion ’06 conference, and then again at the Thirsty ’06 conference.  Since then, I’ve been listening to his sermons every so often via podcast…and he is one of my favorite preachers.  One of my favorite things about listening to him speak is that I come away with it amazed and impressed, not at his speaking/teaching abilities (which are excellent), but at how clearly God speaks through him. 

Anyways, he preached a sermon last Sunday called Lukewarm and Lovin’ It and I’ve listened to it twice now…and man, it is knocking me around a little bit.  His challenge to his congregation is really powerful.  If you are a podcaster/sermon listener, or even if you’re not…I’d definitely encourage you to check it out.

I don’t think I let myself get to a position often enough where I am willing to let the Word of God mess me up.  I talk about how the Christian life is not an easy one, and that I don’t want to focus on the things of this world, and that God is my priority high about all other things.  But how often does my life actually reflect that? 

So…if you’re so inclined…check out the sermon.  It’s a well spent 37 minutes…

  1. Woh, this Francis guy is cool. Never heard of a Chinese pastor (I’m still laughing about that part) talking, challenging people from Simi like that…with such a majorly simple message. It’s so out of line, to be speaking like that to those rich suburbanites out there.

    I’ve only gotten halfway through this message, but I had to comment already.

    Thanks, dood.
