Short but to the Heart

Excerpt from Tim Keller’s The Prodigal God:

When a newspaper posed the question, “What’s Wrong with the World?” the Catholic thinker G. K. Chesterton reputedly wrote a brief letter in response: “Dear Sirs: I am. Sincerely Yours, G. K. Chesterton.”  That is the attitude of someone who has grasped the message of Jesus.

Mmmmm. Got to let that soak in real good. Got me good.

Psalm 138:6
For though the LORD is high, he regards the lowly, but the haughty he knows from afar.

  1. i LOVE g.k. chesterton. love. read orthodoxy! it’s good. so are his funny detective stories, i hear, but i’ve never read one. yet.

  2. YO. i am reading “reveal” now about all the findings and patterns based off the Willow Creek research. SOO interesting!!
    I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT IT.

    “Research strongly suggests that the church declines in influence as people grow spiritually.”
    ..talking about how programs/ministries don’t correlate w/ people’s spiritual growth (how much they love God and others), and then saying there is a high correlation w/ people’s relationships with JESUS…(continuum: exploring Christianity, growing in Christ, close to Christ, Christ-centered)
    and they argue that churches just need to be a platform for serving opportunities and serving the poor/community, and that THIS is when personal spiritual disciplines build people up to be Christ-centered.

    gahh it makes so much sense but it really made me think about NCFC, mang. we always think it’s about being involved in ministry but WHERE AND HOW ARE OUR HANDS REACHING OUT TO LOVE THE UNLOVABLE LIKE JESUS LOVED?

    ok that is all. still need to mull over it. ahaha sorry i just blurted it all on your blog entry, which btw i like.
    and btw, i like the new layout, even though i dunno how new it is. it looks so legit and professional. like i’m at some celebrity’s official blog. woop woop.
