R21 Book Review: Jesus + Nothing

Jared Oliphant at Reformation21 writes a very helpful review of Jesus + Nothing = Everything.
He commends much of the book, including Tullian Tchividjian's passion and zeal for the Grace of God. Yet the one concern that comes through is a great one for me (and probably lots of others) to be highlighted. Oliphant concludes with this:

"Although we do well to live as we are - eternally secure before God in Christ - we are currently still aliens here on earth, and we still have the hard work of obedience to do while we struggle with this world. That hard work requires much more than getting used to, remembering, recognizing, and realizing our justification. It requires the Spirit working through and within us daily to bring to completion his perfect plan of salvation in Christ."

Happy New Year!

Jesus Paid It All!

Verse 1

I hear the Savior say
"Thy strength indeed is small
Child of weakness, watch and pray
Find in Me thine all in all"

’Cause Jesus paid it all
All to Him I owe
Sin had left a crimson stain
He washed it white as snow

Verse 2
Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow'r and Thine alone
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt this heart of stone

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3
And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete
Jesus died my soul to save
my lips shall still repeat

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge 1

Oh, praise the One who paid my debt
And raised this life up from the dead

Bridge 2

Oh, praise the One who paid my debt
And raised this life up from the dead!
