True Christian faith is based on a radical God, not on a radical lifestyle. I think sometimes we put too much emphasis on doing “radical” things for God. What’s truly radical is that we are not radical, we are not impressive, we are not worthy, yet God loves us and gave himself up for us anyway. That’s radical, not us.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
—Romans 12:12 (via godmoves)
- plot twist: he likes you back
There can be no separation between true knowledge of God and a true worship of God. Theological knowledge is not sufficient for Christian growth. You need to be changed by what you learn. It shouldn’t simply affect your mind, it should also affect your heart.
