the gospel doesn’t simply make bad people good….it makes dead people alive!
that really hit me the last few days. i didn’t know who said it, so i did a little research and it comes from this larger quote.
“Only the gospel can truly save you. The gospel doesn’t make bad people good; it makes dead people alive. That’s the difference between the gospel of Jesus Christ and every other world religion. All the others exhort their followers to save themselves by being good, conforming their lives to whatever their worshiped deity is. But the gospel is God’s acceptance of us based on what Christ has done, not on what we can do.” Tullian Tchividian

i just thought it was a brilliant quote and i can’t expound on it further.
that is all.
