MCMXCII
Life // Raw & Uncut

Immersed in Relentless Grace.

Something I’ve thought about recently is how we have speech. Regardless of the language it’s pretty scandalous that we get to worship a Holy God with such words that can be used to describe other things. On top of that we have foul language, curse words, cuss words, etc. Words that are technically coexisting with words that we can use to glorify God. This is crazy, God is much more worthy to be praised than the language we used. He is so holy, we cannot fathom His holiness. It’s crazy that I can use these words to worship Him and not even come close to worshiping at His worthiness. Even the music we play, the musicians behind those instruments, unmatched glory. Not even close to His worth, but lets not get into that today. :)

The day when we can worship God with a language not plagued by sin.

Oh that day…

don’t understand.

  I don’t understand how some people who intimately and personally knew Jesus Christ as their Lord can so easily abandon and disregard how they live their lives and their speech. I know that no one is perfect, but there is a difference between sin and struggling with sin. 
  I don’t understand. What if I was one of these people? What makes me any different then these guys who I grew up in faith with? Was it a church thing? Did I “get it” more? Is it a maturity issue? Idk.. But I won’t stop praying for everyone. I trust in the sovereignty of God that He will finish what He started. In His time.

It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life.
2 Peter 2:21

God’s not dead.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate that this man is the antithesis of what a sucessful rapper is supposed to be: a trainwreck-party-all-night just generally hedonistic lifestyle, known for serving occasional jail time, having several children (all to different mothers) raising none of them as he should, and spreading hate and conflict wherever he goes, instead is the opposite: a man who is respectable, loves and serves God with all his heart, serves others instead of jail time, has three kids to one mother, all of whom he is raising as he should be, and spreading love and peace wherever he goes.  Thank you, Lecrae, for being such a fine example of who a person ought to be like: Jesus.

Leviticus is not a book about the constraints of a Christian [do’s or don’ts] but rather a book that describes the absolute dependency we have on Jesus to save us from our sin. Leviticus specifically talks about the price of our sin and the procedures it takes to pay this price. Thank God for His son Jesus Christ for paying the price that is so confusing to pay (let alone understand) an expensive payment I might add, on my behalf, on our behalf.
