Tweets of the Week 7.7.12

Enjoy these tweets that got me thinking:

Mission naturally happens when the gospel rightly rooted in our life.

Preachers: Preaching reveals how much you love talking to people. Prayer reveals how much you love talking to God.

The glorious bookends of instantaneous justification & glorification make progressive sanctification a journey to enjoy
