Thompson, like Daniel Hill, spoke about how we see. How do we see Jesus? How do we view following Jesus? We will always disciple from a vision. What vision do you have?
So often, Christians tend to operate from a vision of power and a big win. But when Christ said, "follow me, " he was heading to suffering, pain, to the cross.
What is the vision of Jesus you are painting to people? Is it compelling? Is it a vision people want to give their lives to?
Thompson also had a few other sticky points...
*"We can have the right answer but the wrong practice."
*"Grace is like water. It flows downhill and pools in the lowest places."
*Thompson also compared classical and jazz music to a classical and jazz theology.
Thompson said that we've been about classical in the Church for some time, but it's time for jazz.
