The God of the Bible does not seem as interested in us knowing about him as he desires for us to actually know him- to have experiential knowledge of him. — Bill Clem in Disciple: Getting Your Identity From Jesus.
Belief in the Gospel is the beginning, not the end, of discovering the nature of God. Christ offers us a new life where redemption is continual and learning is constant. We are offered a chance to rethink our lives, our actions, and our minds in conjunction with salvation from sin. — Recent thought about Romans.
At first, you don’t even know it’s happening. It all just started with a simple “hello,” and you never would have guessed it would lead to this. Your mind starts to concentrate on that one person, and nothing else. Whenever you see, talk to, or even are near that special someone, those butterflies and that smile appear as your problems seem to disappear. Everything they say or do makes you smile. You just have that happy feeling inside again. It’s a good feeling, isn’t it?
I want to feel this way again. Until then… Keep #lifting.
