The Problem with Showcase Christianity – Crumbs

?????????????????????????????????????

“Jesus Christ lived in the midst of his enemies. At the end all his disciples deserted him. On the Cross he was utterly alone, surrounded by evildoers and mockers. For this cause he had come, to bring peace to the enemies of God. So the Christian, too, belongs not in the seclusion of a cloistered life but in the thick of foes. There is his commission, his work. . . . ” Dietrich Bonhoeffer

full heart

“I believe firmly that the moment our hearts are emptied of pride and selfishness and ambition and everything that is contrary to God’s law, the Holy Spirit will fill every corner of our hearts.” D. L. Moody

 

“As Christians, what do we have to offer that is more rewarding, real and lasting than the alcohol, illicit sex or the pleasures of the world? We have the Holy Spirit. God’s spirit is the source of real love, true joy and lasting peace. The Holy Spirit is the source of our hope, direction and power.  Elizabeth L.
