Paul Tripp: What Hinders Community

DSC07892

Paul Tripp has a great post over at Desiring God: What Hinders Community.

You can’t fit God’s dream (if I can use that language) for his church inside of the American dream and have it work. It’s a radically different lifestyle. It just won’t squeeze into the available spaces of the time and energy that’s left over.

Go check out the rest of the post at Desiring God.  You will be encouraged.

One thought on “Paul Tripp: What Hinders Community

  1. That’s a great quote. I’m amazed when I consider how often my life lines up more with the American dream than with the lifestyle prescribed in the Bible.
