Sitting Down for Jesus

In his book entitled, "The Trouble With Jesus," Joe Stowell tells the story of the mayor's prayer breakfast in Chicago. If it were not for the performance of Wheaton College choir, the name of Jesus would not have even been mentioned.

The keynote speaker was saying that now is the time for the religions of the world to lose their narrow traditions so we can become one in worshiping one God. At that moment the entire room stood in standing ovation. Joe Stowell refused to stand. He knew that the speaker meant that Christians had to give up their narrow tradition of Jesus Christ. Joe Stowell remained seated in his chair in allegiance to Jesus Christ.
