Nuggets – 11/23

Came accoss this article by Kevin DeYoung about the risk of sacrificing holiness in order to not seem fundamentalist or too religious. His concern is that we may end up abandoning the real manadate of being conformed to the image of Christ in order to fit in. Well worth the read.

  1. Good stuff Bro! Thanks for the recomendation.

    I like this quote

    “My fear is that as we rightly celebrate, and in some quarters rediscover, all that Christ saved us from, we will give little thought and make little effort concerning all that Christ saved us to”

    and your right we see alot of people conforming to the image of the World or whats hip and trendy rather than to the image of Christ like we are instructed to do in the Bible.

    Good nugget dude!

  2. Tony,
    This caught me right in the stomach. I was at work the other day and caught myself in a conversation that could be termed nothing else but unholy, unrighteous, … just bad. I mean, I was smack dab in the middle…and realized how much it killed my witness. What a good reminder. Thanks bro. louie

    • Louie,

      I am right there with you. It is so easy to be in a conversation that takes a turn and turn right with it. The article was very self-convicting. Thanks for the comment. Hope all is well with you!

      Tony
