“Authentic faith assesses obstacles in the light of God’s sovereignty.”

“Love is the emotion of self-control, for when love is our response, we are able to act, not react, to life.”
“Grace is radical. It is diametrically opposed to the world system in which we live. Think about it. At school, at play, at work, perhaps even in our own home, we have to perform to be accepted. We have to justify our own existence and do something to earn our keep. It is little wonder that every religious and moral system in the world except New Testament Christianity is based on performance. The heart of man is ever prone to add something of human device to the Divine provision.”
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ–to the glory and praise of God.
Philippians 1:9-11 (NIV)
