Radical Burnout

“Calling us to do great things for God is part of the hype that constantly burns out millions of professing Christians.  Telling us about the great things God has accomplished–and, more than that, actually delivering his achievement to sinners–is the real mission of the church…  Radical discipleship means bringing to the world–including Christians–the wonderful, surprising, and offensive news of the gospel.  Nothing we have done, are doing, or can do is radical.  It is the same old story of human striving.”

Michael Horton “Christless Christianity
