Hey Guys! Just wanted to share something that I read in ‘The Cost of Discipleship’ by Dietrich Bonhoeffer who is one of my all time heroes. I have been reading this book for like two years, but it’s definitely a good one…so much good stuff in there….Anywho….here it goes:
This is from the Beatitudes where Jesus is talking about mourning:
“By ‘mourning’ Jesus, of course, means doing without what the world would call peace and prosperity: He means refusing to be in tune with the world or to accommodate oneself to it’s standards.”
I love that part just about refusing to be in tune with the world….That is so true that we as Christians are called to such a different life. A life set apart for complete devotion to God.
Being here at NTBI, I am facing some different situations than I am used to. It’s good, I am learning and growing, but I also need to really remember to keep my focus on Christ and seeking Him.
I would definitely suggest reading ‘The Cost of Discipleship’ and listening to the Radio Theater by Focus on the Family called ‘Bonhoeffer’. Definitely a favorite of mine.
With all my Hope in Christ,
