“Many people today, some well-intentioned and some not so much, are doing their best to soft-pedal the gospel in order to widen its appeal.

But in reality, they’re doing the exact opposite.

When we make following Jesus a tag line, or view it as just something we add on to our lives without sacrificing anything, we are actually diminishing the value of the gospel.

We do the gospel an injustice when we don’t call people to sacrifice and give their entire lives to Jesus, because in doing so, what we’re really saying is that following Jesus is not really all that important.”
