Justification by Twitter

Justification by Twitter.

A truly convicting and challenging post by Dustin Neeley blogged yesterday at The Gospel Coalition.

“We are more excited about what strangers say about us that what the God of the universe has already spoken over us through the cross. We are stitching together a flawed coat of fig leaves out of followers, “friends,” and retweets to try to hide insecurities that can only truly be addressed in the gospel. But, by God’s matchless grace, if when we are tempted to go to the the fleeting approval of man, we instead go to the eternal approval of God that is ours in Christ—the approval unaffected by the abundance or absence of re-tweets—we, our followers, and the kingdom are better for it.”  ~Excerpt from Dustin Neeley’s Justification by Twitter.
