God is not silent…

“I think a new world will arise out of the religious mists when we approach our Bible with the idea that it is not only a book which was once spoken, but a book which is now speaking.”

~ A.W. Tozer quote from The Pursuit of God: A 31-Day Experience

Not so easy…


There’s a great little article over at Crosswalk.com referencing a “Christian-ized” EASY button t-shirt. It made me think of one of my all-time favorite quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer:

“…grace is costly because it calls us to follow, and it is grace because it calls us to follow Jesus Christ. It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life. It is costly because it condemns sin, and grace because it justifies the sinner. Above all, it is costly because it cost God the life of His Son: ‘ye were bought at a price,’ and what has cost God much cannot be cheap for us.”

Just one more reason I often have issues with materials produced by the Christian subculture. A life of following Jesus is not always easy. And I certainly can’t picture Jesus hanging on the cross going “that was easy.”
