The Most Important Lesson My Dad Taught Me

Picture+3

Ray Ortlund Sr. | 1923-2007

Ray Ortlund shares wisdom from his dad that we all need to hear:

I think about my dad a lot.  I miss him so much it aches.  But the most important thing he taught me was this.  There is only one way to live: all-out, go-for-broke, risk-taking enthusiasm for Christ.

He used to say, “Halfway Christianity is the most miserable existence of all.  Halfhearted Christians know enough about their sin to feel guilty, but they haven’t gone far enough with the Savior to become happy. Wholehearted Christianity is happy, and there is no other happiness.”
