Jungle or Jail?

Albert Mohler gave a commencement address and charge to graduates of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary last  May 17, 2013. It’s challenges like the ones he made in the address that I really would like to hear.

Here’re the final two paragraphs of Mohler’s speech:

Our fervent prayer is that, as you go, you go with the longing to be asked the question that was so famously asked of Peter and John: “By whose power or by what name did you do this?” We long to hear you answer, “This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.’”

That question may land some of you in jail. It will be asked of others in jungles. But, wherever you are asked and regardless of who does the asking, the answer is always the same: “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!”
