To live and die

We need to help people see that Christianity is not just a list of do's and don't's, it's a way of showing the glory of God. We need to show them that it is built on the gospel; on the beauty of Christ, risen and reigning.

The question is not "What's wrong with this music or movie or this party or these friends?" The question is "How can I act and speak and feel so that I can help my friends see the worth of Jesus above music and parties and movies and friends?"

-And- "How can I live my life to glorify God in my body?"

-And- "How can I live to show that Jesus didn't come into the world to help us party better, But that He came to help us live and die better?"
