It's not about rules and rituals, it's about grace. It's not about our duty, it's about what God has already done for us.

Sunday, March 29, 2009

It is only by the blood of Christ that we are saved.

Saturday, March 28, 2009

Do not sacrifice the permanent on the altar of the immediate and temporary.

"For my part, I am going to boast about nothing but the Cross of our Master, Jesus Christ. Because of that Cross, I have been crucified in relation to the world, set free from the stifling atmosphere of pleasing others and fitting into the little patterns that they dictate."

--Gal 6:14, The Message
God's children were chosen by God before He created anything, before the foundation of the world.

All we are is recipients of grace. We did not earn any part of it.

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Jesus should judge us; instead, He was judged for us.

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

Don't worry about tomorrow. God will provide, and if He choose not to provide temporarily. He has a reason which, if we knew it, we would gladly let Him say "No" or "Wait." God's plans are always better than ours.

Have eyes to see. Look beyond the facade. The visible is not ultimate reality.

Sunday, March 22, 2009

Gold, silver, precious metals. Wood, hay, straw. Build well.

Friday, March 20, 2009

Delight in the law of the Lord. Meditate on it day and night. Put your roots down deep, near the river of God's truth, and God will make you flourish in due time.

The story is not ours to write. God writes the narrative, and His storyline is always trustworthy.

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

The Lord is good to those who fear Him.

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

If you cry tears, cry them to the Lord. Tears cried to anyone or anything else--to people, to the past, to our dreams--are in vain.

Monday, March 16, 2009

The Lord is many things, but above all, He is holy, entirely separate and pure. If He is holy, what kind of people should we be, as His children?

Sunday, March 15, 2009

Be a person of your word. Promises made are promises kept.

Saturday, March 14, 2009

The Lord gives and the Lord takes away, blessed be the name of the Lord.

I couldn't have said it better

“I have three things I’d like to say today. First, while you were sleeping last night, 30,000 kids died of starvation or diseases related to malnutrition. Second, most of you don’t give a shit. What’s worse is that you’re more upset with the fact that I said 'shit' than the fact that 30,000 kids died last night.”

--Tony Campolo

We do not grieve as those who have no hope.

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Those who beg daily for righteousness will be given the grace for that day only. We return every new day hungry and thirsty for God to again give us our daily bread, our daily grace to honor Him.

Sunday, March 8, 2009

Be single-mindedly devoted to Christ.

Saturday, March 7, 2009

God alone determines what is right and wrong.

Friday, March 6, 2009

Shine your light. Don't hide it for anything or anyone. Testify to God's grace and love at all times and in all seasons.

"Let us not glide through this world and then slip quietly into heaven, without having blown the trumpet loud and long for our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Let us see to it that the devil will hold a thanksgiving service in hell, when he gets the news of our departure from the field of battle."

--C.T. Studd

Love Yahweh your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.

Monday, March 2, 2009

The joy of the Lord is my strength.

Sunday, March 1, 2009

Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.
