A lot of friends of mine graduated today. I am joyous and excited to see what path they take and see how they are doing, but it is bitter because they will be missed and many of them have influenced me deeply. Bitter sweet indeed.
Grew up atheist with pretty strong hate towards God, whom I didn't believe was real. I am now and have been for the past three years been a disciple of Jesus. If Jesus Christ is all I have, I have all I need. I am currently a freshmen at the College of Idaho, playing lacrosse and majoring in Religion. If you'd like prayer message me.Ask me anything
If we confuse the gospel with response to the gospel, we will drift from what keeps the gospel on the ground, what makes it clear and personal, and the next thing you know, we will be doing a bunch of different things that actually obscure the gospel, not reveal it. At the end of the day, our hope is not that all the poor on earth will be fed. That’s simply not going to happen. I’m not saying we shouldn’t feed and rescue the poor; I’m saying that salvation isn’t having a full belly or a college education or whatever. Making people comfortable on earth before an eternity in hell is wasteful. Matt Chandler, The Explicit Gispel (via graciouslysaved)
