Matt Chandler Quote: Brilliant

18 Mar

“The Holy Spirit uses Driscoll in a lot of ways. Driscoll can tell you that you are stupid on a Sunday morning and everyone will say, “yes I am, how can I be saved?” But, if you try and be Mark, instead of who God has called you to be, you are going to look like a bunch of jackasses!” (quote from the Contend Earnestly Blog, which is also awesome)

I really encourage you if you are a church leader to listen to this,  you can find it here.

    That was a great quote…it had the entire congregation at the Resurgence…wondering if they should laugh, throw stones or be convicted…

    It was great…that whole sermon of his was great.

    I love the fact that Chandler can say “jackass” in a sermon and it’s just awesome. That was an excellent message.

    What I love is that he said it more than once! Sometimes someone will say it once to shock..but he kept saying it!

    Plus he said it about Driscoll (who I love but he does act like a jackass) and Driscoll was in the room and his church hosting the conference. There’s a facebook group called “I have a man-crush on Matt Chandler” Gotta love the guy.

    I figure one of the best things about Driscoll is that if you happen to act like a jackass (and I happen to have that issue…lol)is that Driscoll demonstrates that God can use even those of us who are tact challenged. 🙂

    Read the quote again…he wasn’t talking about Driscoll being a jackass but all the other guys who try and be Driscoll instead of who God has called them to be.

    I listened to it and I think he said both…but not in a mean way…but in a hilarious way!

    “White folk gettin’ all excited that some dude used “jackass” in a sermon…….PRICELESS!!”

    Isn’t it ironic that you would comment as you are this blogs commenting Jack-ass.

    I love the fact that you are more wrapped up in Matt Chandler saying jackasses than the actual meat of what he was talking about.
