if…

If I abase myself before the King of Heaven,
And every time I walk into His sanctuary am impressed that He doesn’t need me…
And then I look around at my brothers and sisters, and think in my heart how lucky they are to have such a strong saint as I in their midst…
If I offer myself as a servant to the Fatherless, if I pour myself out on the streets, if I am strict to live in accordance with what principles are laid before me….

And then I am frustrated, angered, or annoyed by my surrounding church members who just don’t get it….
Then I know nothing of Calvary love, and am become entirely unacquainted with the barest foundations of the Gospel: no matter how many eloquent words I say, or how many good things I write on my blog, or books I read, or feelings I have.

    Convicting. And encouraging
    (convicts me of how much this sounds like me)
    Encourages me to look to Christ again

  • an overarching philosophy (for me, anyway)

    "I find that when I am most helped, I write: and that by writing, I am helped." Augustine of Hippo

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
    - A. W. Tozer
