Dad's rich! He has unsearchable riches in Christ – of inheritance, mercy & grace – all ours in Jesus (Eph 1:18,2:4,2:7,3:8) #EnjoyYourDay
Christians don't so much think Supernatural > Natural (as tho those terms were obvious). We do think Personal > Impersonal
Your God has gone to hell and back for you. Do you think He doesn’t love you? Hasn’t forgiven you? Won’t raise you to glory? #EnjoyYourDay
Of course He's the shy member of the Trinity - He's the original Ghost writer. (2 Peter 1:21)
For the Christian, the Holy Ghost gives us our substantial identity. It's the flesh that haunts us.
Life does not grind along according 2 impersonal laws. Yr Father plots, yr Brother reigns, His Spirit moves: minute by minute #EnjoyYourDay
The way of Adam: keep back, fill up, cling on.
The way of Jesus: press in, pour out, give away.
We come to Jesus with failures, fears and futility.
He gives us forgiveness, a Father and a future.
Far and away the most common word to describe Jesus’ feelings in the Gospels = “compassion”. ie gut-wrenching mercy #EnjoyYourDay
The test of an orthodox church: they believe in God's THREEness and salvation's FREEness
You may feel besieged by worries. Give them to your Father and know: it’s His peace that garrisons you (Phil 4:6-7) #EnjoyYourDay
Jesus gives strength to the weary, grace to the guilty, worth to the worthless, hope to the hopeless. #EnjoyYourDay
Probably the most driven animal was the Dodo
Through the Righteous Branch, God never stops doing u good. In fact He rejoices 2do u good with all His heart&soul (Jer32-33) #EnjoyYourDay
Darwin: Death is the engine.
Jesus: Death is the enemy.
Your sins call down grace, your sufferings – comfort, your death calls you home. Life’s very worst can only make u better #EnjoyYourDay
"Padre, Is God really like Jesus?" The Q of a dying WW2 soldier to Tom Torrance. With eternity beckoning that's the Q! Torrance's answer >>
<<“He is the only God that there is, the God who has come to us in Jesus, shown his face to us and poured out his love to us as our Saviour” You may be in the darkest part of the valley. Even there u r clothed in Christ, filled with His Spirit, adopted by His Father #EnjoyYourDay Though clouds may hide it, the Light of the world has risen, the darkness is defeated, it’s a completely fresh start #EnjoyYourDay Dawkins: "There is, at bottom, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference." Moses: "Underneath are the everlasting arms." His might dwarfs yr problems: they’re a drop in the bucket. His meekness draws u near: like a Shepherd gathering lambs. Is40 #EnjoyYourDay Feeling suitably shriven today? God exalted Jesus to His right hand to *give* you repentance (Acts 5:31) #EnjoyYourDay Forever the Spirit anoints the Son. Now He anoints His Bride. Soon He’ll anoint the earth & the deserts will bloom (Isaiah 35) #EnjoyYourDay We are His children and even Leviathan is His pet (Job41:5). There’s nothing our Father can’t - or won’t! - turn to our good #EnjoyYourDay Augustine on the Donatists: "The clouds roll with thunder, that the House of the Lord shall be built throughout the earth... ... and these frogs sit in their marsh and croak - We are the only Christians!" If u knew Jesus was praying 4u in the next room, what confidence u’d have! Distance makes no difference. He’s still praying.#EnjoyYourDay
