Faith doesn’t make anything happen – faith rests on something that has happened!

Agape is not wakened or created by the beauty of its object, but arises spontaneously from the heart of God. It is therefore a love that cannot be earned or deserved… His love for us originates in who He is, not in our being loveable.

The love of God… is the magnetic north of truth by which we fix our position as we stumble lost in the wilderness of the world… To know that His love for us depends on Him and not on us is the beginning of the way out of our futile, meaningless lives and religious despair.

The Gospel declares the incredible news that our relationship to God is not based on ‘if’ and ‘then’ but rather on ‘because’ and ‘therefore’.

He set His love upon us before we were born, and therefore with no reference to our behavior or works whether they were good or evil.

Remember: What you do doesn’t determine who you are; who you are determines what you do.

The more you reaffirm who you are in Christ, the more your behavior will begin to reflect your true identity.

The most important belief we possess is a true knowledge of who God is. The second most important belief is who we are as children of God, because we cannot consistently behave in a way that is inconsistent with how we perceive ourselves.

Disagreement doesn’t equal hatred. I can disagree with your ideologies and behavior and still care deeply for your soul.

Our behavior does not determine who we are!
