Scot McKnight and Mel Lawrenz discuss One.Life: Jesus Calls, We Follow and the need for Christians to move past focusing on Christian living and follow Christ at a foundational level. An obsession with the Kingdom of God, he says, is the mark of Christ, and Christ’s vision for morals is what we are to be most concerned with. Mirroring Christ’s interest in peace, justice, love, etc., is the goal and framework in which we are to order our lives.
