More Discussion on the "Ordinary" vs "Radical" Discussion

Loving God supremely and loving your neighbor sacrificially are what ordinary Christians do. We don’t do it perfectly, but we do pursue it intentionally. We make disciples where we are with all that we are. We may not turn the world upside down, but Jesus has turned us inside out–and that makes a difference in how we live by faith, step by step, for the glory of God. We pray for His kingdom come, for those dead in sin to be made alive by the power of His Spirit–prayers that are filled with expectant faith in the One who said we would “do greater things than these” because He ascended to the Father.

At the end of the day, I don’t want to be ordinarily ordinary, but ordinary in every sense that Jesus defines ordinary. It just seems that such a notion is, well, a radical thing to do.
Well said.  Read the rest.
