"For the Lord your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."

"If the devil would have realized the result of the crucifixion of Jesus, the devil would have tried to kill everyone who was trying to kill Jesus."

"When God has us worship Him it's not because He's an egotist in need of our affirmation. It's because love always chooses the best and you always become like the one you worship. And there is nothing that He could want better for you than for you to be like Him."

Bill Johnson

Making disciples is not an easy process.  It is trying.  It is messy.  It is slow, tedious, even painful at times.  It is all these things because it is relational.  Jesus has not given us an effortless step-by-step formula for impacting nations for his glory.  He has given us people, and he has said, “Live for them.  Love them, serve them, and lead them.  Lead them to follow me, and lead them to lead others to follow me.  In the process you will multiply the gospel to the ends of the earth." 

David Platt from his book Radical

We had an amazing weekend spiritually.

Lots of time in the word with different people and Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Lots of encouragement for me and my girlfriend.

We got home last night and my dad had sent us the following video. I'm thankful for parents who aren't stagnant in their faith and who disciple. Thanks for the link Pops!

Watch this. In two minutes you will be encouraged and, if you are stagnant in your faith right now, you will be touched to get off your bum and start discipling. Jesus could come back today and there are people you know who need to hear the Good News. Go!

Future Pro

Yesterday someone in our house won the "Player of the Month" award at his soccer school.

It was a huge deal for him. He only had an ear to ear smile plastered on his face for about an hour after he was presented with his medal.

Okay so he was one of three boys that won the award for May. And his class has 16 kids.

It still counts and, in Anderson's world, it was just like winning the World Cup.

It was another one of his "best day ever" days.
