Bad Ass


Dare to be grateful for every good thing.  And dare to know it’s all good.  That’s what God does: God works everything for good.

Dare to never make pain invisible but dare to say injustice is intolerable.  This takes courage.  This takes Christ.

Dare to give up clarity — because God gives a call.  Dare to give up life road maps — because God gives a relationship.

Dare to live without answers — because God gives His hand.

Dare to live by faith — not by feelings, formulas, facts or fences.

Nothing is impossible with God.

First Things First

God’s first priority is not to clean up our sins; it is to help us learn how to live in his love. His cleansing makes that possible even where we still feel entangled in sin. Certainly he wants the cleansing within to untwist our self-indulgent ways, but that only happens as the fruit of living loved. Because we are clean we can live in him. As we live in him his fruit grows in us to displace the waywardness of our old ways.
