-You tell man to return to what he was; you change him back to dust. A thousand years to you are like one day; they are like yesterday, already gone, like a short hour in the night. (Psalm 90)

--You know, like becoming a Christian hermitIt was while reading McManus' book, Chasing Daylight, that I was struck by how many Christians define their faith by what they separate themselves from and not what they engage in.
It made me think about the fact that Jesus did not die on a cross to start a country club of people who huddle together each Sunday to avoid the world around them. A cursory glance at Church history will show a living, vibrant community of Christ followers engaging the world."We have put so much emphasis on avoiding evil that we have become virtually blind to the endless opportunities for doing good" McManus states.

"Many of us [Christians] are being forced to remember that one can be inconsistent in doctrine(like many of us)mistaken in some things(like all of us)and yet truly following Jesus one step at a time."
--Sanctification is a process--
Why is it easy for us to accept the fact that Jesus accepts us and so hard for us to accept each other?

Christians around the globe will raise their hands up to worship the One who conquered death, abolished sin, and ushered in victory to whoever calls upon Jesus as Savior. Recently, I have been reading and thinking about a concept called the Butterfly Effect. In its essence, it teaches that everything is connected to everything. For example, it has been proven that a butterfly fluttering its wings in one part of the world can set in motion a hurricane that takes place in another part of the world.
In I Corinthians 15, Paul brings up this idea with Adam and Christ. Paul says that "through one man and his disobedience, death and sin were introduced into the world." He goes on in the very same verse (v. 22) to say, "that through another man's (Jesus) obedience, life was offered to all who believe." -Two men, two actions, two resounding effects-
