"God is pursuing with omnipotent passion a worldwide purpose of gathering joyful worshipers for Himself from every tribe and tongue and people and nation…Therefore let us bring our affections into line with His, and, for the sake of His name, let us renounce the quest for worldly comforts and join His global purpose."
    -- John Piper

    What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?

    In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

A few quotes from “A Hole in Our Gospel”

I’m reading “A Hole in Our Gospel” by Richard Stearns.   I purchased the book intentionally on the recommendation of a blog that I read regularly but had no idea what I was in for.  Keep in mind that I am reading through this as I have been working through the Radical series by David Platt.  These two follow Crazy Love and Forgotten God by Francis Chan.  Consider these two quotes for a few minutes:

Christ is an all or nothing proposition, and one way or another, every one of us has already made a choice about Him.  We have either committed our lives to Him wholeheartedly, or we have not

It’s not what you believe that counts; it’s what you believe enough to do

All or nothing
