"Where then is thy glorying? It is excluded. By what law? Of deeds doing? Nay, but by the law of faith. For we deem a man to be justified by faith, without works of the law." - Romans 3:27-28 (Wycliffe NT)


"Anytime the Christian makes sense in a Bible study or sermon, you can almost bet your life you're not hearing Christianity."
Pastor Tom Baker


We Are Not The Initiators

We played no part in the initiation of Creation. We did not initiate our salvation. We were never meant to initiate anything. Christ Jesus does all of this. He is the initiator. We need not ask Jesus to "come here and fill this place" or the Holy Spirit to "make His presence known." He's already here. How can you ask He who is omnipresent to be anywhere?Isn't He who is omnipresent everywhere? Certainly. We accept that He is already among us because He says He is! Now we can stop getting ourselves involved and move out of the way and rest. If we would just do that and take "us" out of the equation we would know His presence like He meant. Instead, we continually ask Him to do things He's already accomplished. Let the One True Initiator initiate.
