Can You Be Right and Still Act Like Jesus?

"Paul says that the Lord's servant must not correct others with an attitude that is ready to pick a fight or with a desire to rub another's nose in it.  In other words, being right does not justify arrogance, intimidation, rudeness, or harshness.  Holding the right position in the argument never justifies betraying the character of Jesus in our manner." ~ Zack Eswine

Why Do You Read the Bible?

"To read the Scriptures in a manner that leads us to something other than a greater enjoyment of God and embodied love in Jesus is to know without knowledge, to shine without illumination, and to stand at the door with no key." ~ Zack Eswine, Sensing Jesus

Normal Existence

"When we follow Jesus as the apostles did, we have no idea how he will use us.  He may maximize his glory through us by a faithful but nonetheless 'normal' existence.  Or he may have a more unusual route of glorification."  ~ Owen Strachan, Risky Gospel

Gospel Driven Discipline

"That's what gospel-driven discipline is:  a response.  It's hearing from your heavenly Father how incredibly much you're loved, and then plunging into everyday life from that joyful perspective." ~ Owen Strachan, Risky Gospel
