We are consumers to the core, looking at even salvation as a commodity.
What’s in it for me? How do I benefit?
God becomes a fire extinguisher, a genie, a lap dog.
We domesticate God until he becomes a god.
“I am learning that God intends salvation to be more than a ticket to heaven, and that his chief purpose in providing the church is not to transport us there with as little inconvenience as possible.” Don Ratzlaff in the Christian Leader
I really needed to hear that.
Let God be God!
Let us give Him praise.
