jesus + nothing = everything

All theology is an exposition of the gospel, a further articulation of the gospel in all its facets meticulously unfolding all its liberating implications and empowering benefits. – Jesus + Nothing = Everything, Tullian Tchividjian

True spirituality takes us away from ourselves and into the messy lives of other people. – Jesus + Nothing = Everything, Tullian Tchividjian

The gospel liberates us to be okay with not being okay. We know we’re not – though we try very hard to convince other people we are. But the gospel tells us, “Relax. It is finished.” – Jesus + Nothing = Everything, Tullian Tchividjian

Preachers these days are expected to major in Christian moral renovation. They are expected to provide a practical to do list rather than announce, “It is finished.” To focus on how I am doing more than on what Christ has done is Christian narcissism (an oxymoron if I ever heard one), the poison of self-absorption which undermines the power of the gospel in our lives. – Jesus + Nothing = Everything, Tullian Tchividjian

The only thing you contribute to your salvation and to your sanctification is the sin that makes them necessary. – Jesus + Nothing = Everything, Tullian Tchividjian

What most distinguishes the gospel from legalism is that legalism says God will love us if we are good, while the gospel tells us God will make us good because he loves us. – Jesus + Nothing = Everything, Tullian Tchividjian

Christian growth doesn’t happen by first behaving better but by believing better – believing in bigger, deeper, greater ways what Christ has already secured for sinners. – Jesus + Nothing = Everything, Tullian Tchividjian
