Playing the Game Well



“My fear for some of you is that you learned early on
that by saying certain things you got power and credibility and applause.

You’ve learned to play the game well. 

You’ve learned that to make much of Jesus, much is made of me.
You’ve been conformed by a pattern rather than transformed by the Spirit.”


Pastor Matt Chandler at The Gospel Coalition




Our family was recently blessed to attend The Gospel Coalition a few weeks ago and were blessed to hear some very influential Christian men of this generation speak there. My favorite, of course, and the reason I went was to hear Pastor Mark Driscoll. We like to call him the Drill Sergeant because we love how he calls us Christians to battle!

What would we do if we didn't believe in Jesus Christ. Thanks for your post and blessings to you!
