Day 2

 Day 2

 Let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God's life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness...
So roll up your sleeves, put your mind in gear, be totally ready to receive the gift that's coming when Jesus arrives. Don't lazily slip back into those old grooves of evil, doing just what you feel like doing... You didn't know any better then; you do now... 
Your life is a journey you must travel with a deep consciousness of God...
Now that you've cleaned up your lives by following the truth, love one another as if your lives depended on it....
(Highlights from The Message 1 Peter 1: 13-25)

  1. Don't you just love Peter? He's always been my favorite disciple because his story reveals just how possible it is for God to forgive us and make something out us, even with all our mess and mistakes.

    I wrote this in my quote journal over a decade ago and still love it: “God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume . . . it is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever.” -Vance Havner

    Have a great day, Angie! I love you!
