Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

Last year I learned about an organization founded by Tony Campolo,  It focuses on reminding Christ-followers of the words Jesus says, "the red letters."

Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death.  Everyone will hate you because of me, but those who stand firm to the end will be saved.
                                                --Matthew 10:21,22 TNIV
Those are red letters, the words of Jesus.  Jesus warns us that our families may be no help, no friends of discipleship, and may even stand in the way.

Matthew 10 is the traveling instructions chapter for the Christ-follower.  The red letters caution us that the focus on the family, may be a distraction from following Jesus.
