This is the latest video I've done for Wolfe House & Building Movers, where I do Graphic Design. Yes, we do more than just lifting houses above flood lines, or moving humongous buildings.

Happy New Year! ...and I pray you will become a More Radical Christian in this good year 2017. But WAIT-- Before you click me under the bus, please let me explain.
Radical means 'Rooted'— it comes from the 'Late Latin' radicalis "of or having roots," from the Latin radix (genitive radicis) "root (see radish). The meaning "going to the origin, essential" is from 1650s. [dictionary.com]
Now, if you're just taking up space on the earth, if you live only to collect pleasures and win 'Like's, the meaning of almost anything (for you) may as well be meaningless.
But if you want your life to count big— if you want your Earthly Investments to pay back Huge Eternal Dividends— well then you simply must become a radical
Christian. As in, 'like Jesus originally taught.' Rooted in Him. Living out what is Essential.
"Must?" you say... Yes, for Jesus was no modern American, with our typically HUGE disconnect from the eternal realities. Get to know Him by reading HIS words, heeding HIS warnings, pleading HIS cause. Commit yourself to HIM alone as your 'bottom line.'
Never let the Roots of your Beliefs be warped by what another 'mere man' thinks (for he too will be arraigned before God for judgment) or by the temporary creed or subjugating selfishness of a 'mere denomination'. Ask God what HE wants from you. Go to The Source, and 'Read The Bible— it sheds light on the commentaries!'
Life is so much bigger than any man, however impressive, or any exciting or comfortable movement. Read some of the good old writers. Follow some of those sold-out Christ-followers from centuries past— martyrs, missionaries, thinkers, and DOers, who gave themselves to God to the utmost. With your hand in God's, GO!
No, it won't be 'fad'ish, but please become more 'rad'ish— rooted and grounded in Jesus Christ. And if 2017 ends up being your last year on earth, you'll be so glad you did.
