A person with the vision of God is not devoted to a cause or to any particular issue; he is devoted to God Himself. You always know when the vision is from God because of the inspiration that comes from it; things come with largeness and tonic to the life because everything is energized by God. Oswald Chambers
The only reason for being Kingdom-people, for being Jesus’ people, was that the forgiveness of sins was happening; so if you didn’t live forgiveness, you were denying the very basis of your own existence. N.T. Wright
1 Corinthians 1:8 – 9
God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure, shares with us the life of his Son and our Master Jesus. He will never give up on you. Never forget that.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
So we're not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace.
These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There's far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can't see now will last forever.
