The Jesus of Suburbia…

27 Oct

So I was going to post more quotes but it seems that I have left my copy of the book at urgent care, where I was with yet another sick son :(…ear infections should be illegal. Oh well I will go back for it tomorrow. I did read a similar quote today from a guy from the 1800’s about adandoning everything to follow Jesus radically… and we thought we invented it in this generation 🙂 Here:

“…Even where these are not entirely neglected, they do not always take the place they are meant to have—that first place that makes everything, the dearest and best, secondary and subordinate to the work of helping and blessing men. A reckless disregard of everything that would interfere with God’s will and commands, a being jealous with God’s jealousy against sin, a witnessing and a fighting against it at any sacrifice —” Andrew Murray

    Dude, I’m reading “Jesus of Suburbia” right now!! Sorry, I’m excited because I love his writing. The best part: I really dislike reading. If I can avoid it, I do. But kid, this book rocks – Jesus def. is using this man.

    Praise Jesus!
