Just wanted to share a great little post that was referred to me this morning. Michael Wittmer is professor of Systematic and Historical Theology at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary and the author of Don’t Stop Believing, which looks like an interesting read (but read The Gospel Uncensored first).

The post in question is entitled give up, which at first glance may seem to contradict his book title. But, you’ve got to read the post. Wittmer concludes with this powerful paragraph:

The gospel is counter-intuitive.  What serves us well in most areas of life can be a disaster in our walk with Jesus.  The normal secret to success is to try harder.  The secret of salvation is to stop trying.
