New Year, New Adjective: “Christ-Exalting” | Desiring God

New Year, New Adjective: “Christ-Exalting” | Desiring God: "There are serious theological reasons why we love hyphenated phrases that turn verbs and nouns into adjectives. God-centered. Christ-exalting. Spirit-dependent. Bible-saturated. Gospel-rooted. Truth-tethered. Soul-satisfying. Sin-killing. Justice-advancing. Satan-defeating. Self-sacrificing. Risk-taking. Mission-pursuing. And more. One of those reasons is that making a verb into an adjective shows that it modifies a hundred things you do rather than simply being one of those things. I’ll come back to this."
