The gospel sweetens the law.

Hm... I don't really see any Scriptural backup for this quote.  Among many thoughts off the top of my head, the law is the schoolmaster that brings us to Christ.  The law does not save a man, it condemns him.  It brings God's wrath.  I can't find a Biblical statement that says the gospel sweetens the law.

Getting offended is usually a sign that we take ourselves far too seriously and have too high of a view of our own importance.

Every day, I sin. Each sin is the sin of the prodigal son.

This needs to be my prayer each time I am made aware of my sin. I am not worthy to still be called a child of God when I, who have been given so much, and who have tasted of the goodness of The Lord and His righteousness, shirk obedience for the sake of the promised joys of sin that leave me starving. While I don't even deserve to be a hired slave in His kingdom, He, because of His faithfulness and justice, welcomes me in grace every time.

“When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him."
Luke 15:17-20

Grateful for the gospel that gives me forgiveness and the power to love obedience to His law more and more each day. Father, make me more like You.

Truth is truth. It can't be more true or less true. And the story about the prodigal is.

As I face another week, I am so glad that I have purpose for my life and for the weeks that make up that life.

While I don't like calling Christianity a "revolution" (it's a reformation), this quote makes an important point. As a young person, I want a cause to be a part of and to fight for. So many Christian messages to young people are about simply being conservative (don't do y or z) instead of giving a vision for what we should do. I think we need both: "put off" and "put on" (Eph 4:22). I am blessed to have been given the godly legacy of purpose and the big picture of the kingdom of God. There isn't a day that I don't feel the overwhelming sense of purpose an joy and just wishing I had more time to do all the projects I wish I had time for! Bring on the Mondays! :D

Daughter of the King, bought with a price, with a vision of serving Him wherever he places me, for His glory.
Introduction

I'm 22 years old, and live happily with my parents and four younger siblings. I love my family, and enjoy helping out on which ever project we have going at the moment! Sometimes it's building a house, and sometimes it's exterminating ants. Whatever it is, it's fun since I'm with my best friends- my family! 

I have a passion for reading (check out my link to goodreads to see what I like reading), writing, theology, children, and organizing. I try to live everyday to the glory of my most gracious Heavenly Father who gives me each breath! Life is not always easy, life is not always fun. But life is always good, because my Father has planned it all, ahead of time for me- each circumstance, each step and path, selected carefully. He is my life, my strength, my all. ♥ 

I have died, and my life is hidden with Christ in God. To me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Only let my manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ! I pray that I will keep my conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that...they may see my good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.

Favorite Quotes: 

Only one life- it will soon be past. Only what's done for Christ will last!

Even though I’m not married, I wouldn’t call my self single, because I’m part of a family unit. I always feel like my life is full of purpose, and I’m not just sitting around waiting. I am an un-married young lady, but I am serving God and my father and then that will transition one day, if God wills, to my husband… and I’m very grateful for and satisfied with that.

"The Bible is authoritative on everything of which it speaks.
Moreover, it speaks of everything."
- Cornelius Van Til 

"Oh, see to it that the Word of God is in you, in your very soul, permeating your thoughts, and so operating upon your outward life, that all may know you to be a true Bible-Christian, for they perceive it in your words and deeds.” 
― Charles H. Spurgeon

Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants." ~William Penn

‘Give yourself to reading.’... You need to read. Renounce as much as you will all light literature, but study as much as possible sound theological works, especially the Puritanic writers, and expositions of the Bible." ~C.H. Spurgeon

Education is discipleship; whomever we allow to educate our children is discipling our children. “A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher” (Luke 6:40 ESV). 
(Voddie Baucham)


"I am not what I ought to be;
I am not what I would like to be;
I am not what I hope to be.
But I am not what I once was,
and by the grace of God,
I am what I am."
-John Newton

There is no life so empty as a self centered life...
and There is no life so centered than a self emptied life."

"You are not likely to see any general reformation, till you procure family reformation. Some little religion there may be, here and there; but while it is confined to single persons, and is not promoted in families, it will not prosper, nor promise much future increase." ~Richard Baxter, "The Reformed Pastor"

“Feelings come and feelings go, 
And feelings are deceiving; 
My warrant is the Word of God-- 
Naught else is worth believing. 

Though all my heart should feel condemned 
For want of some sweet token, 
There is One greater than my heart 
Whose Word cannot be broken. 

I'll trust in God's unchanging Word 
Till soul and body sever, 
For, though all things shall pass away, 
HIS WORD SHALL STAND FOREVER!” 
― Martin Luther
