Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Eric Metaxas spoke before President Obama

... and others at the National Prayer Breakfast yesterday.
Metaxas is probably best known as the author of the best-selling biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
Metaxas gave his personal testimony, said some good works about prayer, and hilariously tried to pressure President Obama into reading his books.
Metaxas spoke powerfully about William Wilberforce and about Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and made direct application to the political struggle against abortion.
Metaxas challenged evangelicals to love our political enemies.

One key quote:

"Human beings do not do the right thing apart from God's intervention."
