“In your pursuit of godliness, have you left Jesus behind?”

The title of this post is a quote from one of Elyse Fitzpatrick’s books entitled “Because He Loves Me”.  Reading that book, by the grace of God, turned me around spiritually.  It is my hope that this blog will be a tool that points to Christ and that it will bring glory to Him.  It is not my plan for this to be a blog in the traditional sense (where I write about my life, opinions, etc.).  My desire is to have a place where one can read Biblical, cross-centered quotations as an encouragement in daily God-honoring  living.

“True Christianity is not a program of self-improvement; it’s an acknowledgement that something more than self-improvement is needed.  What’s needed is death and resurrection; gospel words, gospel constructs, gospel motives, gospel power–a loving Redeemer.”

Elyse Fitzpatrick (Because He Loves Me)
