The gospel is…the word about Jesus Christ and what he did for us in order to restore us to a right relationship with God. – Graeme Goldsworthy

Comfort or the Cross

Today's quote is a follow up to yesterday's blog. Read it, soldiers of the cross, and embrace the road of discipleship – a path full of sustaining grace. Will we choose the comfort of grace or the comfort of culture?

“Frustration is normal, disappointment is normal, sickness is normal. Conflict, persecution, danger, stress – they are all normal. The mind-set that moves away from these will move away from reality and away from Christ. Golgotha was not a suburb of Jerusalem.” – John Piper, The Roots of Endurance: Invincible Perseverance in the Lives of John Newton, Charles Simeon, and William Wilberforce (19)
