the true self / false self

Great snapshot of our identity in Christ... the true self and false self. Finished "The Gift of Being Yourself" (Benner) yesterday, and this was in the last chapter.

brrr!

Brrr! 47 and rainy today.
My favorite song for the fall and winter seasons... enjoy!!


...and yes, I know it's not even really cold yet!

revival

Revival does not come just because people get very spiritual, or because they tear out their hair, or even because they pour out their hearts as Job did.

Revival comes in the time and manner that God wills it to come.
- The Gospel According to Job (Mason), p.344

test your internet speed

Want to test your internet connection speed?



This was my home speed this morning. Not bad for home service.

human being

I am a human being, not a human doing. My worth lies in who I am, not what I can do or how I am seen by others. This is the truth of my existence.
- David G. Benner, The Gift of Being Yourself (p.86)

become like a child

Jesus tells us that "anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it" (Luke 18:17). Ironically, in the family of God to become a little child is to have attained maturity. Spiritual growth means growth in childlikeness. To grow up is to grow down.

The Gospel According to Job, p. 338

confidence

I sometimes think that the very essence of the whole Christian position and the secret of a successful spiritual life is just to realize two things…I must have complete, absolute confidence in God and no confidence in myself.

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
