We Truly Are Not Our Own

This is a REALLY good article about how our chief end is truly to glorify God.

I love what the author (Nathan Tasker) says" "Our generation of Christians has become the epitome of lukewarmness. We have become so much like the world, either in a compromising state of spiritual laziness or in a vain attempt to make Christianity look easy-going and free-spirited, that we have made it nearly impossible for unbelievers to see the difference between us and our non-Christian peers."


  1. So often, the church, and I as a member of the church often fall into the same trap, begins to fall prey to the mistaken notion that the radical Jesus of the gospel, who demanded that "anyone who puts his hand to plow, and looks back, is not fit for the kingdom of heaven" (Lk. 9:62), is not the same Jesus today. Mistakenly, we have changed a radical, life-changing call to follow in His footsteps for a more laid-back, comfortable, user-friendly call, one that gives me what I want while demanding nothing. Lk. 9 and 14 are unmistakable demands for whole-hearted submission, adoration, and obedience. And the cost is quite clear!

    And the problem is (as David Platt says in Radical) that when we paint God in our image or into what we want him to look like, we are no longer gathering on Sunday to worship God. Instead, we may just be worshiping ourselves!

    1. Exactly! So MANY people are doing this these days! Its so sad!
