From Unfashionable, by Tullian Tchividjian:
â€œThe real tragedy here is that when professing Christians discard the Bible, theyâ€™re largely prevented from making a lasting difference in the world.Â Why?Â Because their standard is no different from the worldâ€™s.Â Making that difference requires us to think and live differently than the world does, and the Bible alone â€“ as revealed truth coming from outside us â€“ is where we learn how to do itâ€¦.
Whether itâ€™s athletic competition, entertainment, sex, money, politics, business, art, or science, our faith ought to inform every arena of thought and life.Â Nowhere does the Bible say that the Christian faith is private, partial, and compartmentalized.Â On the contrary, the Christian faith is public, pervasive, and complete (see 1 Corinthians 10:31).Â And this faith is to be governed and fueled by Godâ€™s Word, not merely on Sundays, but every day and in every way.â€ (pgs. 38-39).
I almostÂ always read with a highlighter in hand, so that I can markÂ certain passagesÂ for future reference.Â But, every once in a while, I come across a sentence, or a paragraph (or two!) that I think everyone needs to read.Â So, I was excited to discover this blog carnival (through Lisa), which is hosted by Melissa, at Breath of Life.Â The idea is to shareÂ a quote, or quotes that spoke to you during the week.Â They can be from any written source (magazine, newspaper, blog, book).Â The only requirement is that they be words you read.
