"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.

Go immediately and read this

If you are looking to know what it’s about.  What being completely surrendered to (and living radically for) Jesus is all about, you must go read what Katie at Amazima had to say today.  Seriously, drop whatever you are doing and go read.  Here’s the link to my heart spilled

For the record, I don’t know how to do this.  I think that there has to be something about not looking back.  Jump in with both feet when Jesus tells you to, and don’t look back.   And what happens to the life you’ve built for yourself?   You can’t ask about that either.  This is scary stuff and I don’t like it.  But the mere thought about the joy on the other side is what has me standing right here on the edge with my toes hanging over.
