alien righteousness

Go for the gospel. Go for the preaching. Go to be near to God’s Word.

“If I could leave you with one thought, it’s this: Go.  Go to church.  Don’t go for the coffee, the presentations, the music, or the amenities.  Don’t even go for the feelings you may or may not get when you go because, no offense, these feelings may or may not be truthworthy most of the time.  Go for the gospel.  Go for the preaching.  Go to be near to God’s Word.” (196)                                                      

Taken from Why We Love the Church:  In Praise of Institutions and organized Religion, by Kevin Deyoung & Ted Kluck.
