Not Just About You

Once we give in to the idea that the gospel is only about a personal relationship with God and not about God's redemptive plan to renew all things, we give ourselves permission to stop engaging the world around us.  Once we are no longer engaging the world around us with the gospel of Jesus Christ, once we're no longer caring for the widow and the orphan in their distress but allowing someone else to do it, then we've removed one of the major components of true biblical discipleship.  ~ Matt Chandler, The Explicit Gospel
