Am I prompt in giving thanks?

September 29, 2012 Leave a comment

John Calvin correctly observes that most of the time we are very quick to forget the great things God does for us. What if all day we actively focused on thanking God for all the great things going on? What kind of day would that look like? Different I am thinking.

What should I do more of? Pretty simple and straightforward. More thanks!!

We have short memories in magnifying God’s grace. Every blessing that God confers upon us perishes through our carelessness, if we are not prompt and active in giving thanks.

Bill Johnson – Reformation Through Loyalty

January 31, 2012 Leave a comment

Bill uses Daniel as an example of how we can bring about transformation in a corrupted kingdom, how we are called to be light on a hill, leaven in a lump of dough, and salt that preserves the world we are in. Bill talks about Daniel’s radical loyalty and it produced a radical redemption in Nebuchadnezzar’s life.

At the heart of it, it’s about not holding people’s sins against them (2 Cor 5:18-19), it’s about loving anyone that crosses our path, meaning, we want nothing other than to serve and benefit them, because it’s kindness that draws repentance (Rom 2:4)
