For those of you who ask what I believe in. This is it.

Grace alone from a king who would bow to wash our feet.

So much incredibleness in this video.

There is no glory to be brought to God’s name when people are doing something because it’s an obligation, with no real enjoyment of their Creator.

Restless…

Tonight I am restless. I feel this is partly the result of days of sleep and sickness, but it seems to be more than that. For a while now I have been filled with a thirst for life, an itching for activity, an unquenchable desire to be more, see more, do more. I crave roadtrips and adventures, to see sunrises and sunsets, fields of gold and oceans blue, to just spontaneously call up friends and say “let’s go somewhere”. My body is filled with energy to the point where it shakes if I don’t start moving. I am bursting with life, and it is so good.

- R E D E E M E D - // “My chains fell off, my heart was free, I rose, went forth, and followed Thee…” Oh the joy it is to stand no longer condemned and living in the freedom of His grace!

The highest glory of the creature is in being a vessel, to receive and enjoy and show forth the glory of God. We can do this only as we are willing to be nothing in ourselves, that God may be everything.

She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.

See the empty tomb today
Death could not contain Him
Once the Servant of the world
Now in victory reigning…

When Jesus looked down from the cross, he didn’t think “I am giving myself to you because you are so attractive to me.” No, he was in agony, and he looked down at us - denying him, abandoning him, and betraying him - and in the greatest act of love in history, he STAYED. He said, “Father, forgive them, they don’t know what they are doing.” He loved us, not because we were lovely to him, but to make us lovely.
— Timothy Keller
■ The meaning of hope at Easter

This weekend, as most Australians head up the coast or to sodden camping sites in search of rest, millions will still gather around the world to remember an ancient story of a Jewish Rabbi brutally executed by the Romans, holding on to the hope that it is the light of resurrection on Sunday following the darkness of Good Friday that provides the reason to hope in God’s solution to the world we find ourselves in.

Those who have come to believe this story to be true understand it to be about a hope that has invaded the present such that we don’t give way to despair. It’s about the future restoration of broken things, of death and evil being conquered, justice and order emerging from chaos. It says that every life is of eternal significance.

I want to climb mountains, see the sun rise from a kayak, travel the world, write books, use my body, see spectacular flowers, experience ridiculous things, know people’s stories, have my own story, learn, become friends with my parents, love freely. I want to know death’s immanence without seeing it, so the world’s life is even more beautiful.
