Just Quote’n – John Piper #6

We take a the mirror of God’s image, which was intended to reflect his glory in the world, and turn our backs to the light, and fall in love with the contours of our own dark shadow, trying desperately to convince ourselves (with technological advances or management skills or athletic prowess or academic achievements or sexual exploits or counterculture hair styles) that the dark shadow of the image on the ground in front of us is really glorious and satisfying.”

Musical Monday #34 -Evermore Lyrics (Hillsong)

If you follow this blog you may have noticed that the regular feature of Musical Monday’s hasn’t been happening this year, But that doesn’t mean that I do not still find a great source of encouragement in songs. Below is one of my top songs, reminding us what we live for. Because He is worthy!

Just Quote’n – C.J. Mahaney #2

What should consume our thoughts and affections is not resisting worldliness but the glory and grace of God revealed at the cross. We must take the sin of worldliness seriously, to be sure…But its eradication is not an end in itself. Resisting worldliness is absolutely vital but not ultimately most significant. Jesus Christ is most important. We must fight Worldliness because it dulls our affections for Christ and distracts our attention from Christ. Worldliness is so serious because Christ is so glorious.

-C.J Mahaney in the book “Worldliness”

John Piper and the Prosperity Gospel

Just Quote’n (Chanski)

As you may see below this post this is the second use of the title of “Just Quote’n”. These quotes are designed just to share a snippet of something I have read somewhere else and want others to be able to see. Some will be long some will be short, some I will give context to some I wont…You never know! Just read, think and enjoy 😉

“I have not been assigned to stare out my bedroom, living room, office window, passivlely daydreaming about what I might do, if only there weren’t so many obstacles. Rather I am to get there, so help me God, and plan it, clear it, and do it, with all my might, to the glory of God….Life is short. Opportunities are many. What we do, we must do aggressively and quickly.”

– Mark Chanski in Manly Dominion in a passive-purple four ball world.
