Favorite quotes from Chapters 9 & 10 of Jesus + Nothing = Everything by Tullian Tchividjian

Is your life—is my life—causing the people around us to hope desperately that the gospel is true? Is there a gospel-soaked attractiveness to our lives? Does an aroma of grace spill out from us into selfless service to others?

the gospel isn’t the first step in a stairway of truths but more like the hub in a wheel of truth.

As Tim Keller says, the gospel isn’t simply the ABCs of Christianity, but the A to Z of Christianity.

only the gospel can crush the moralistic tendencies that are the natural default mode of our hearts.

The Bible never starts with what we need to do; it always begins with what God has already done.

We spend more time asking what would Jesus do instead of what did Jesus do.

the reason Christ came was first of all not to make bad people good but to make dead people alive.

Real slavery is self-reliance, self-dependence. Real slavery is a life spent trying to become someone. But the gospel comes in and says we already have in Christ all that we crave, so we’re free to live a life of sacrifice, courageously and boldly.
