"Have you made yourself what you are? Or are you living proof of what God can do?... Authentic Christianity is miracle, not management." ~ Ray Ortlund, Jr.
I love that synopsis.
Everything in the Christian life from admission to enduring is a miracle of God's grace on our behalf.
Christians were not meant to be statues in museums, free from flaws and static.
We were meant to be outright wrecks that are held together by the glue of grace for all to see and stand amazed at our mere persevering.
God is robbed when we act like we have our accounts in order.
This is the final verdict of those adopted by grace:
"We get mercy. God gets glory." ~ Ray Orlund, Jr.
May it be.
