Christ Stands In Our Place

History Is His Story---- All About The Very Works of God

"The book of Acts is excellent history...... Luke does not merely give us a history of the early church; he tells us that there is a plan to history.  God is unfolding it.  That plan does not have to do with the rise and fall of empires.  It does not have to do with one race or people being more influential than another.  The Bible does not even look at history as having to do primarily with individual successes or attainments.  The meaning of history is in God's work: God reaching down into the mass of fallen humanity and saving some hell-bent men and women, bringing them into a new fellowship, the church, and beginning to work in them in such a way that glory is brought to Jesus Christ.  That is what Luke is writing about as he unfolds these events."

We Will Rest In His Arms Soon

"The God of all comfort, who sends down drops of comfort now--- will soon call us up to enter into the torrents of the fullness of His joy forever!  Weeping may endure for a night--- but joy comes in the morning.  Soon our sufferings and sorrows will be forever ended!

- James Smith

Jesus Bore Our Sin Problem

"Our sin problem was what moved Him from a place of unapproachable glory to become our substitute, and His substitution provoked the very intricacies of destruction that was invoked by our sin problem."

- Yours Truly

Value Yourself

"Your talents are a gift.  Are you just going to drop them, hoping that someone will give you your dream job and a fat salary just for being you?  Or are you going to take responsibility for what you've got and really push yourself to do something great with those gifts?  You have to believe in yourself enough to know that you've got talent and that you are worth the investment of time and effort.  God valued you enough to give you those abilities.  Value yourself enough to grow those talents to become great."

- Michael Oher (from the Blindside)
