Love is absolute, it holds nothing back, it speaks, lives, grows, and pours out; To love, you must be willing to surrender your protection, wants, passions, and ultimately, your life. This is why it hurts so much when love is not returned, and this is why you are transformed when you love Christ.
T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via godmoves)
You ask me “What’s the the greatest act of faith?” To me is to look in the mirror of God’s word, and see all my faults, all my sin, all my shortcomings and to believe that God loves me exactly as he says he does.
Paul Washer (via worshipgifs)
To be conformed to a pattern of religion is not the same thing as being transformed by the Holy Spirit of God.
Matt Chandler (via littlethingsaboutgod)
I’ve come to understand obedience as more than simply not doing bad things, but running to God to drink deeply in Him so that I don’t want to run to any other source.
