'What is Christianity?' Undoubtedly half will respond, 'A relationship with Jesus.'

That is wrong. The gospel cannot be merely a private transaction. God didn’t break through history, through time and space, to come as a baby, be incarnated, and suffer on the cross just so you can come to him and say, ‘Oh, I accept Jesus and now I can live happily ever after.’ That’s not why he came…. Jesus came as a radical to turn the world upside down. When we believe it is just about Jesus and yourself, we miss the whole point.
