Jonny Quest thinks i'm selling out

Question: How may people were crucified with Jesus?

Two.

Why do you believe that?

It says so in the Bible.

The Bible also tells us that we who are saved are dead to sin, and that we have only been tempted by what is common to man. Grace is amazing, mind-blowing and un-understandable. Grace has saved and is working in a carcrash of a sinner like me, making me rejoice, and love and sing, and want to dance and spend my life telling people about Jesus. Grace doesn't mean we can go on sinning.

Before i was saved, i was a slave to sin. Sin told me when to get up, what to do, where to go... My reward for my hard work for my master, my wages that i had earned? Death. Spiritual and physical.

Now i am a slave of righteousness, which is much better. My life is still not my own, but thats cool. And i don't have to work for my reward, its a free gift of grace. How cool is that. How awesome is our God that He would shed His blood for us. That we can call the Creator of the universe, the One who lives in blinding fearful holy light Father, is incredible. It really is.

I'm away from monday till friday, up in the Hebrides with my dad and sister. PLEASE pray that i'd use the oppotunity to talk to my dad about things y'know? That it'd be contructive God glorifying Kingdom advancing times. I love the Kingdom. It'll be good to go away for a bit, see some different things, be with different people. I am restless right now. I want to crack on in Guildford and get started there. But i've got things to do and things to learn, so thats ok. I shall do and (hopefully) learn. And there's a chance when i get back of an 'exciting' new blog-series starting...maybe.
