Giving Life to Find it

“They’ve given themselves more than any human being ever could have. It’s miraculous the ways they’ve been able to do that. Not only are they not dead, they’re doing really well. And then you look at those people that have alot of kids, and they’re doing really well. You either write them off as either superheroes or super crazy.”

Holiness in the Little Things

“Am I gonna spend 30 minutes looking at my phone when I could just be hanging out with my kids playing Legos? I don’t want to play with Legos, but you know what? That’s what love looks like. Because I’m looking at the focus of my kids.”

Recognize the Undeserved Gift

“My wife is more than I ever could have asked for. She’s more than I deserve. If I can just rest in that, let that be the gift that it is, it is absolutely overwhelming. The joy that comes from that is overwhelming – it’s the best.”

Blessed Amidst The Storms

“I want you to see the people with these open hearts, theses loving kind hearts that have been so generous to us. But I don’t want you to stop just at that person. I want you to see God, who is the giver of all good things, behind all of that.”

Channeling His Love

“I’m allowing love – I’m allowing God in me. I’m listening to Him and following him. That’s love reigning in me. That’s how I can extend love to others, because love is in me.”

Yield to Love

“How am I doing when it comes to my relationship with Elise? And I’ve got my point that I want to say, and I’ve got my reasons, and I’m gonna interrupt and stop and try to do the thing that I think is right in the moment, when what I really need to do is yield to love.”

Journey to the Final Union

“We’re striving each day to lead each other closer to Heaven; and we’re gonna celebrate and we’re gonna rejoice and that is totally of God, and that is awesome. It’s not the banquet that we’re called to – that wedding feast of the Lamb. It’s a little glimmer, a piece of heaven here on Earth.”

Religion’s Cleansing Embrace

“You don’t take a bath and then get cleaned up, you take a bath to get cleaned up. You don’t try to get clean and then go to Jesus, you go to Jesus and He cleans you up. And there’s real strength in that.”

Love vs. Lust

“To look at someone as an object, whatever that may be for – any kind of a gain, pleasure, finances, prestige – to use another person is completely the opposite of love.”

The Power To Love Rightly

“I’m trying to go back out and wake people up and say “Christ is Real. He rose from the dead, he wants to save us.” But we’re falling asleep back in our sin, we’re going back to bed, we’re pressing the snooze button, and we’re not rising up to the challenges that are faced before us.”
