Melt Away Christians

3 08 2007

ist2_403281_melting_snowman.jpg“Christ had no interest in gathering vast crowds of professed adherents who would melt away as soon as they found out what following Him actually demanded of them.  In our own presentation of Christ’s gospel, therefore, we need to lay a similar stress on the cost of following Christ and make sinners face it soberly before we urge them to respond to the message of free forgiveness.  In common honesty, we must not conceal the fact that free forgiveness in one sense will cost everything.” – J. I. Packer
