Oh, this is so good. From Ray Ortlund’s latest post, Out with the garbage:
“We have become, and are still, like the scum of the world, the refuse of all things.” 1 Corinthians 4:13
Gospel people know where they belong – out with the garbage. In this world of false glories, the cross and all who love it will never measure up to this week’s definition of cool. The early church accepted that, and triumphed. Now it’s our turn. And one thing to gladden us is this. Even below the bottom of the heap is the Lord Jesus Christ, the weakness of God and the foolishness of God, saving everyone low enough to discover him there.
