Mark Dever Quote

I just wanted to share a great quote from Mark Dever. Dever is the pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist church in Washington D.C. and is currently speaking at a Pastor's Conference. You can watch the video of him preaching on the need for evangelism here.

In his message, he said (amongst many other GREAT things):

The difference between a Christian and a non-Christian:
When a non-Christian is convicted of sin, he sides with his sin.
A Christian sides with God, against himself.

The idea of us siding with God against ourselves is so awesome to me. With Christ, we can do anything- even battle our own demons that dwell inside of us and cause us to sin. The imagery is beautiful.
