The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, then walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable. - Brennan Manning

I was writing an e-mail to a friend and I was reminded of a great DC Talk song, "What if I Stumble?" as I wrote about evangelism in the workplace. Then I had to track down the quote (above) and discovered it's by an amazing author (Ragamuffin Gospel, anyone?). Then, I started to look more about him and it's funny how seeing one little video clip or reading an oft-heard quote, it makes me fall more in love with Jesus.

Lord, I pray that my actions will be in line with my words, which I also pray will be in line with Scripture. I desire to live a life that is pleasing to You and if all else fades, You remain.

  1. I read the quote and thought of that DC Talk song right away. I never even stopped to think that some author had penned the words.
