This book by Jared Wilson annoys me.
Not for reasons you may think.
See, early in March or April, I had this idea to do this sermon series in August, when my senior pastor would be on vacation. I would’ve had 3 or 4 Sundays to preach in a row.
As I was reading the Sermon on the Mount, an idea hit me. There were so many concepts of Jesus actually contradicts the Bible’s characterization of Jesus.
I proposed the idea to SPRC, and well, there were mixed reactions and I won’t get into that. But after much prayer and discernment, I realized that I shouldn’t push it, and just keep it in my notes to save for later.
This book was exactly, I mean, exactly what my sermon series was going to be about. The sermon series title was “Who Do You Say I Am?” The opening sentence of the first chapter? “Who do you say I am?” Yup. I could’ve written this book. hah.
But so far, from the first couple of chapters, I’m glad that Jared Wilson wrote this book, because he’s far more eloquent than I am. And I am enjoying reading the book so far.
I take solace in thinking that great minds think alike. Though I may just be fooling myself.
