Where sin abounded, grace abounded all the more. (Romans 5:20)

While our sin reaches far, God’s amazing grace reaches farther, and God’s willingness to forgive is infinitely bigger then our willingness to sin. – Tullian Tchividjian

The High Stakes Of Parenting

I have finally started to read “Gospel Powered Parenting” and a lot of my recent tweets are from that book. Here is an excellent quote from chapter two.

“Christians parent with one eye on eternity. Their children will live forever. This is a staggering thought. We cannot imagine, “forever.” Nevertheless, the destiny of our children either will be love that surpasses knowledge, joy inexpressible and full of glory, coupled with peace that passes understanding, or it will be weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth. There is no middle ground. Therefore, the Christian does not parent for this life only. The believing parent labors to prepare each child for the day of judgment. The stakes are inexpressibly high.” William Farley

Being Made Holy

I read the following Oswald Chambers quote yesterday and had my world totally rocked:

To be a holy person means that the elements of our natural life experience the very presence of God as they are providentially broken in His service.”  You can read the rest of it here The Assigning of the Call | My Utmost For His Highest.

I love the implications of this.  It is saying 1)expect to meet God in the normal and natural experiences of life and 2)Look for God to be with you in Him providentially humbling you and breaking you so that you can be built up again into more of Christ image.  Definitely an encouraging word that I often need to be reminded of.
