It’s been awhile since I posted quotes from a book. It’s because I’m reading two long books and slowly writing some comicbook reviews. This book I’m featuring today is short, one sitting read and I was able to hack this quick post for our reading pleasure.
So enjoy these quotes from the book, The Everyday Gospel by Tim Chester published by 10 Publishing. If you like these quotes, please get the book by clicking here.
“Finding the revelation of God in the everyday does not just mean identifying allegories (‘My heart was dirty until God washed it clean.’). It means having eyes to see God’s active involvement in his world. It means tracing his handiwork in the everyday.”
“If you do not have an everyday gospel, then the gospel will become a formula that you have to crowbar into conversations. But an everyday gospel creates opportunities every day to talk about Jesus.”
“Sin is living for self instead of living for God–running my life my way. But this autonomy does not lead to freedom or joy.”
“If legalism says, ‘I do this because I ought to do it even though I don’t want to’, then what does the gospel say? The gospel says, ‘I do this because I want to.”
“Humanity made in God’s image is given a task that mirrors God’s own creative activity. We are to govern. We are to bring order where there is chaos, form to what is formless – just as God did on days one to three. And then we are to fill – just as God did on days four to six.”
“We respond to the finished work of Christ with a continual sacrifice of praise, worship, love, gratitude, affection and joy.”
“The church is the community of God’s people sharing life – ordinary life, everyday life – at any moment and in any place with gospel intentionality.”
“Christian service takes place in day-to-day life; its occasion and location is everyday life.”
