One of my favorite people on the planet, Susie Larson, did an interview with someone on the planet I didn't know, before today but now like, Tullian Tchividjian, pastor and grandson of evangelist Billy Graham, to talk about his new book, Jesus + Nothing = Everything. They talked about how many Christians struggle through their days, trying to be better and failing, forgetting that they already have everything they’ll ever need.
In Susie's blog entry later that week she said this in response to her in interview with Tullian (pictured above):
"Tullian passionately shared how being on the receiving end of gossip, fault-finding, and assigned motives "broke his legs" and taught him to fully depend on the Lord. He now walks in a whole new level of freedom and power! God showed him how very much he depended on man's approval for his peace of mind. Don't we all fall easily into that trap?Don't you just love that?
And yet, when we put our hope in anything but Christ, even the noblest of causes or the best of people, those things become idols. Our hope is in the living, loving God who promises never to leave us or forsake us."
