Jesus + Nothing = Everything by Tullian Tchividjian

Filed under: Uncategorized — dannywahlquist @ 8:20 am

Some favorite quotes from today’s reading:

“I’d never realized before how dependent I’d become on human approval and acceptance”

“Through my pain, I was being convinced all over again that the power of the gospel is just as necessary and relevant after you become a Christian as it is before.”

“Jesus plus nothing equals everything—the gospel—became for me more than a theological passion, more than a cognitive catch-phrase. It became my functional lifeline.”

‘Augustine caught this perhaps most famously and succinctly, sixteen centuries ago, on the opening page of his Confessions, where he told the Lord, “You made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.”’

“we’re trying to find our rest in something smaller than Jesus.”
