This episode is about what identifies us as followers of Jesus. What are the non-negotiables? Some of us grew up in a culture that emphasized what some call boundary marker religion. There were certain things that you did and did not do that were very important. Those things marked you as being in the group or not in the group. In my group, when I was a kid, you did not dance, play cards, go to movies, or wear long hair. You certainly did not get tattoos. Do those things and you were outside the group.  

But do you know what boundary marker religion does?  It focuses our eyes on the boundary instead of the center.  It focuses on distance rather than direction. The follower of Jesus has their eyes set on Jesus, running in His direction! That's how they will know we are Christians!
