A Comfort For You

I read this on my friend Summer’s blog today. It hit my heart, so I thought I’d pay it forward. Enjoy.

“So much of our lives as Christians is spent in futile doubt, weak questionings, and apathetic, self-serving strategies. In part, we fail in our war for purity because we spend too much time meditating on ourselves, our work, our growth. We have little hope for change because our hope is grounded in ourselves, in how we’re doing, in whether God is proving His love by granting us every trifling desire or delivering us from heartbreaking trial. We’ve been deceived into believing that His love is passe, something we’ve already comprehended. It bores us. John’s message, through the Spirit of the living Christ, calls to you today: “See!” See him. See what your adoption cost Him. See His commitment to His family, to you. Steep your soul in the warmth of His desire to have you for His own, and after you have done that, pursue the purity that is a mark of this fierce love.” – Elyse Fitzpatrick, Comforts from the Cross

Amen and Amen.
