Hardcore Quote

The difference between Christian and non: When a nonchristian is convicted of sin, he sides with his sin. A Christian sides with God, against himself. – Mark Dever, as quoted by Abraham Piper, who is live blogging the 2009 Desiring God Pastors Conference.

OUCH! Who am I behaving like?

  1. Rachel, Still praying for you. You’re acting like anyone else in your situation would probably act. From where I sit, I don’t see you siding with sin. God bless! Allan

  2. oh don’t worry, i’m not beating myself up with this quote. i just thought it was really powerful. i still have my regular old sins like everyone else. and i want to side with God!

  3. What!! Me worry? 🙂 I’m learning so much from other’s trials. I have this tendency to want to fix things and I need to learn to leave things with God. I posted a song this week titled “Fix You” by Coldplay and it’s one of the best songs I’ve ever heard.

    I have always seen so much Godly wisdom in you Rachel and I pray one day you will be a vehicle of healing for people in their distress. Never forget how loved you are by God specifically and the people around you in general. I need that reminder quite a bit. God bless!
