Pathetically Marginal

“In the decades I have followed Jesus, second only to the joy of knowing Him has been a sorrow at the condition of those of us today who name ourselves His followers.  If so many of us profess to live by the gospel yet are so pathetically marginal to the life of our societies and so nondescript and inconsequential in our individual lifes, is there something wrong with the Gospel, or does the problem lie with us?”

–Os Guinness
The Call, p. 59
