Make My Life A Miracle

"Your danger and mine is not that we become criminals, but rather that we become respectable, decent, commonplace, mediocre Christians. The twentieth-century temptations that really sap our spiritual power are the television, banana cream pie, the easy chair and the credit card. The Christian wins or loses in those seemingly innocent little moments of decision.

Lord, make my life a miracle!"

Raymond C. Ortlund, Lord, Make My Life A Miracle, page 151.

  1. "The longer you look at Jesus, the more you will want to serve Him in this world. That is, of course if it's the real Jesus you're looking at. Plenty of people in the church and outside it have made up a `Jesus' for themselves, and found that this invented character makes few real demands of them.
    He makes them feel happy from time to time but doesn't challenge them, doesn't suggest taht they get up and do something about the plight of the world. Which is, of course, what the real Jesus had an uncomfortable habit of doing." N.T. Wright
