The Wrecking Ball

Jesus is a wrecking ball. Once he starts to work in your life, get ready for walls to come crashing down, and to feel the effects. It takes a lifetime of struggle to get used to your new duds, but they are yours, they are beautiful, and they are kept spotless by His righteousness.

Worshipers make Martyrs

American Christian:

It is harder to deal with pride, repentance & the darkness of your own heart than to want to be the martyr you’ll probably never be called to be.  Let’s stop making audacious and hardcore claims and get busy with our own worst enemies, us.  Those who die daily are the best kind of martyr.  Be like the King, who did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing (Philippians 2:6).
