Word for Your Life
“Let us rejoice & be glad & give Him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, & his bride has made herself ready.“ ~ Revelation 19:7
A Year with Aslan from The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Eustace has come up missing .. & as Prince Caspian is trying to organize a rescue party, one of the crew mumbles “good riddance”, but is quickly rebuked by Reepicheep.
You never spoke a word that became you less. The creature is no friend of mine but he’s of the Queen’s blood, & while he’s one of our fellowship it concerns our honor to find him & avenge him if he’s dead.
We would do well to remember that kind of honor in our interactions with friends…& enemies…face to face, or on Facebook.

When we talk to God, even though He’s called us friend, we must not forget who He is.
There was a boy who asked a businessman for $10,000. The businessman said “Son, do you have any idea who you’re talking to?” To which the boy replied – “Yeah. I’m talking to the man who’s rich enough to pay for the operation that will save my mom’s life.”
The same is true for us. When we’re praying we’re talking to the Creator, Sustainer, Healer, Provider, & Author of our faith – & his name is to be honored.
A.W. Tozer ~ That Incredible Christian
Before the judgment seat of Christ my service will be judged not by how much I’ve done but by how much I could’ve done. In God’s sight my giving is measured not by how much I have given but by how much I could have given, & how much I had left after I made my gift. In the work of the church the amount one man must do to accomplish a given task is determined by how much or how little the rest of the company is willing to do. It is a rare church whose members all put their shoulder to the wheel.
Matt Redman ~ Devotion on Mercy
It’s the difference between life & death, between inescapable chains & eternal freedom. It’s where love & justice kiss, & holiness & mercy meet.
Phillip Yancey ~ What’s So Amazing About Grace
The original followers of Jesus watched their beloved Jerusalem burn to the ground, & I’m sure they looked back thru tears as they moved on to Rome & Spain & Ethiopia.
CS Lewis ~ The Weight of Glory
…we are on the outside of the world, the wrong side of the door. We discern the freshness & purity of morning, but they don’t make us fresh & pure. We can’t mingle with the splendors we see. But all the leaves of the New Testament are rustling with the rumor that it will not always be so. Some day, God willing, we shall get in.
The beauty of a woman isn’t in a facial mode, but is reflected in her soul.
Donald Miller ~ Blue Like Jazz
All the wonder of God happens above our formula. The more I climb outside my pat answers, the more invigorating the view – & the more my heart enters into worship.
