“He will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.” -Jeremiah 31:25

“[we] cannot settle for anything less than a God-centered, Christ-exalting, self-denying gospel”

so true. this morning i was reading RADICAL by david platt [[www.radicalthebook.com]] our church is reading this book, discussing it in small groups, and brian is preaching the scripture and talking about radical on sundays. i love it. i’m thankful for a pastor who is relational and real but who wants to share scripture and see change. so good. [[www.thefellowshipofthehills.org if you’re interested]] i read a paragraph talking about how we talk up the idea of “accepting jesus” then it said. do you think jesus really needs our acceptance? heck no! but isn’t it funny how we confuse this idea. how we make ourselves feel good by helping out the god of the universe who created ummm, everything. hmmm, he most definitely does not need me to accept him. thank goodness he chooses me even when i continue to do my own thing… just a sweet remidner for the morning.
