What does it look like for me to be a faithful witness to Jesus in this kind of world?
Whether we realize it or not, the world is immersing us into a story, and the world’s story counters the true Story of our world as unfolded in the Scriptures. What if Christians weren’t surprised or panicked by the state of our culture, but instead were aware of the origin and trajectory of the trends we see? What if, instead of merely decrying the decline in American morals, Christians learned to affirm what is good in our culture’s narratives, challenge what is bad, and showcase the gospel as a better story?
We need to see the world through a biblical lens – to affirm what is good and right, to reject what is false and wrong, and to show how the gospel tells a better story and answers the deepest longings of people in our time. This is what Trevin Wax will help us focus on during our 2017 Life on Mission Conference.
