Manly Quote Mondays: Living Radically

15 Jul

You and I stand on the porch of eternity.

Both of us will soon stand before God to give an account for our stewardship of the time, the resources, the gifts, and ultimately the gospel He has entrusted to us.

When that day comes, I am convinced we will not wish we had given more of ourselves to living the American dream.

We will not wish we had made more money, acquired more stuff, lived more comfortably, taken more vacations, watched more television, pursued greater retirement, or been more successful in the eyes of this world.

Instead we will wish we had given more of ourselves to living for the day when every nation, tribe, people, and language will bow around the throne and sing the praises of the Savior who delights in radical obedience and the God who deserves eternal worship.

Are you ready to live for this dream?

Let’s not waver any longer.
