The variety of Christian kindness done unto Jesus himself is within our reach today, if only we will reach for it.
Sometimes what seem like the longest and most difficult (and even wasted) seasons in life turn out in retrospect to be both the shortest and most significant. It takes perspective to see it.
Jesus did not promise us a life free from calamities and injustices and all variety of problems.
Paul knew the gospel with an irrefutable verity, so he felt an urgency to share it with everyone he possibly could.
We want truth to be scientifically verifiable to the point that it requires nothing resembling faith.
Our task is to see "the vision" and then become the kind of people doing the kind of creative work through whom others can see it.
The Holy Spirit is at work in every person, witnessing to the reality of God, wooing faith into existence.
Once a person's center of gravity shifts from what they are for to what they are against they will lose sight of what they were for and life becomes fueled by obsessive opposition.
We live in the age of the Spirit, where nothing is impossible with God.
God gets us where he wants us, no matter the machinations.
