It doesn’t make sense to me that evangelical Christians tend to have a certain look. A few minutes ago I was walking past the coffee shop meeting room as a group of men were coming out. I have no proof, but I’m sure this was a Bible study or prayer group. They had that “Joe Average” look. I’m painting with a broad brush and my assessment probably comes out of my critical/cynical streak. But as I walked across the street I was wondering why we don’t look more exceptional—as if we were leaders, as if we were confident. I’m guessing that when people saw Jesus for the first time the overall impression was that here was someone who knew who he was and knew what he was doing.

Except that Jesus attracted the weak, the weary, the marginalized. The transformation from there to confident leader takes some time.
