I'm married to the beautiful Bridget and father to four fantastic kiddos. We plant churches and live in a fifth-wheel camper. I write and smoke a pipe whenever I get the chance. Currently camped in Austin, TX.
“God will not give me humility, or patience, or holiness, or love as separate investments of His grace. He has given only one gift to meet our need, His Son Christ Jesus.” – Watchman Nee
How often do we ask God for more of something? Grant me peace. Give me patience. I want to be holy. Please heal such and such or so and so. We often ask for things out of a misunderstanding of who Christ is. When we have come into Christ, we have come into the All who is in all. He is Peace Himself. We now dwell in the person of Patience. We abide in Holiness. Healing is our resting place. And Christ, the personification and manifestation of each of these “things” and so much more, now dwells within us. We now have His life and nature upon which we can draw! Yes, and amen!
