In light of Sunday’s sermon about stepping out in audacious faith, and in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I would like to share this excerpt from a sermon that has become known as Drum Major Instinct:
If anyone in the 20th Century was a Lion Chaser, it was Martin Luther King. He didn’t wait around for someone else to do something about the injustice he saw and experienced first-hand. He did something about it. He lost his life as a result of his obedience to Christ’s call. But a nation was changed because of him.
What do I want to be remembered as? What do you want to be remembered as? Someone who earned a bunch of awards? Or a Drum Major of Justice and Peace – in other words, someone who chased lions and prayed for the Sun to stand still?
