The Beige Plan is “the church-on-Sundays-and-Wednesdays, believe-in-the-Bible, serve-on-some-committees plan.”
Jesus’ Plan is more radical than that–“Leave the past behind, take up your cross, follow me. Love others, all others. Even your enemies. Pray for those who persecute you. Give to the poor. Spread the Good News. Be bold in and about your faith. Trust me.”
In essence, leave the safety of your manufactured Christianity behind. Pick up your cross daily–selflessly, deliberately and follow the path Christ marks out for you. This is more than a holy interruption. This is THE Way of Life.
What will lead you out of beige Christianity? (Read Luke 1:1-38)
May I be as obedient as Mary, the mother of Jesus, when she said, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you said about me come true.” (1:38). I want to follow Jesus’ radical plan, but my flesh is weak. Strengthen my will. Guide me on Your Path. Amen.
