The prodigal son. The woman at the well. The woman caught in adultery. The thief upon the cross. Time and time again we find that it is those who have fallen the furthest who have also understood best—and appreciated most—the grace and mercy of God.
Jesus Christ redeems.
Heaven isn’t for good people, it’s for forgiven people.
I stand tallest when I’m on my knees before my Lord.
“ Do you think anyone in heaven looks back at what they sacrificed and says, ‘Aww why did I give that up?’ No. They don’t.
Francis Chan (via ivebeenfoundworthy)
The time has come to live boldly for God. Stop saying you can do it later, tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year; because God is great all the time. He was never late when He answered your prayers anyway.
“ I don’t want you to stop living in sin because you’re afraid of going to hell. I want you to stop living in sin for one reason: Jesus is better.
Damon Thompson (via set-apartgirl)
What good is knowing about God without knowing him? What good is it to talk about the things of God without being passionate about Jesus? What good is studying God without loving him and pursuing a passion relationship with your Saviour? None. There is no good in that. I think at times it’s important to just focus on Jesus and his sacrifice. Stop worrying about how old the earth is, or the secondary issues and just dwell on the grace, love and mercy that is in the gospel.
