"What we need now is, as we have always needed, is a far-ranging recovery of awe over, and trust in, the sheer power of the gospel, beginning with a return to the dangerously full embrace of the God of the universe present in the saving, interceding, exalted person of Jesus Christ. In Ephesians 3, Paul tells us that good servants of the gospel commit to decreasing themselves while preaching the "unsearchable riches of Christ.
"The unsearchable riches of Christ. Now that is a treasure worth spending our lives on! That is the treasure worth selling everything for, including our well-intentioned Jesus makeovers."
