Is This Too Broad? Really?

“What saves us is Jesus, and the way we lay hold of that salvation is faith. And faith is something…I shall resolutely refuse to let mean anything other than trusting Jesus. It simply means saying yes to him rather than no. It is, at its root, a mere ‘uh-huh’ to him personally. It does not involve any particular theological structure or formulation; it does not entail any particular degree of emotional fervor; and above all, it does not depend on any specific repertoire of good works physical or moral. It’s just “Yes, Jesus, till we die—just letting the power of the resurrection do, in our deaths, what it has already done in his.”
~ Robert Farrar Capon, Kingdom, Grace, Judgment: Paradox, Outrage and Vindication in the Parables of Jesus, pps. 24-25;

As the fences come down…

At 7:30 am this morning, reconnected with an old friend face to face for the first time in nearly five years. It was a wonderful 2 and a half hours spent together reconnecting and fellowshipping. I really missed the relationship. Nice to be able to restart and see the grace of God in our lives and the healing that has come, even through conflict, adversity, health battles, and faith and church struggles. I am thankful for Doug Blair and Hilary today. Thank you Lord Jesus for your healing grace.

  1. Faith as small as a mustard seed, or an acorn, or a Sequoia tree seed! That’s it. Nothing more is needed from us. The rest is given by Him. And then great things can be done by Him through us! All because of faith, …….saying Yes to Jesus! Our small seed like faith blooms into the greatest tree!
