"God is pursuing with omnipotent passion a worldwide purpose of gathering joyful worshipers for Himself from every tribe and tongue and people and nation…Therefore let us bring our affections into line with His, and, for the sake of His name, let us renounce the quest for worldly comforts and join His global purpose."
    -- John Piper

    What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?

    In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

My Prayer

Jesus, I need to give myself up.  I am not strong enough to love You and walk with You on my own.  I simply can’t do it!  I need you.  I need You deeply and desperately.  I believe you are worth it, that you are better than anything in this world, yet day in and day out all of the other stuff of this world gets in the way.  I want you and I want to be focused long enough to remember that.  Help me to focus on you so that I remember that you are worth it when I am faced with temptation, or laziness, or doubt, or fear.  Help my unbelief.

 I want to want you, yet my flesh is weak and craves what the world offers.  I know I can’t surrender fully without your strength, so please send it.  Be all in me.  Take all of me.  Have your way.  I will resist, but remind me that you are the better way.
