Sorry Kris Straub, I was an unwitting participant. Here's his original:
You can't undo the past but Jesus has covered it and is now transforming the mess. It really is onwards and upwards
Eph 1:18-23 - The power of His resurrection is in you, the purpose of His resurrection is for you
"I want in on Jesus" <-- said to a mate in a Sheffield pub tonight. So they prayed there and then!

God's love, which is completely yours in Jesus, is Forever, Fatherly and Forgiving: Psalm 103
He didn't rescue u *so* He could delight in u. He delighted in u & so rescued u. Ps 18. U've been loved at yr worst.
'Who'd be a king when you can be a preacher!?' Spurgeon-ish
#TestimonyOverheard Me to Chaplain "Come to Christ? But I'm Anglican!" Chaplain: "U'd make a much better Anglican if u knew Jesus as Lord!"

When theologians of glory complain vs election they prove their need 4 it. They clearly dont *will* God 2b God & need 2b freed! Forde-ish
Since God draws near in the Christ-child, ask yourself What does a baby want from u? Except that u come near yrself?
Christ doesn't simply end suffering, He enters it.
kingsenglish.info is now rapture ready. If I'm beamed up between now & new years the heathen will have daily scheduled posts 2 think upon
Something tells me this "Street Compliments" project wouldn't work so well in England... Very cool though.
