“Us and our five kids, we’re praying for people and we’re offering up what could be tragic up to God, and we’re redeeming souls. Everybody’s praying for a miracle, I tell you what, we’ve already had a miracle.”
“The more that we turn ourself away from trying to satisfy our pleasures and our desires, and start seeking to love others rightly and to give ourself without counting the cost, to lay down our life, then you’ll find out who you really are. You are a gift.”
“It’s hard to say no people. When someone comes up to you and is like “Hey, could you help me with this?” you want to be like “Yeah, I’m happy to help you with that!”. But at the expense of what? At the compromise or sacrifice of what?”
“We’re going to have to carry our cross. We’re going to have to sweat. We’re going to have to roll up our sleeves and get to work, and we’re going to need grace from God…” – Jason Angelette
Jason looks to the cross as a reminder that everyone will face challenges in life – when they come, they should not lead to a crisis of faith! Marriage itself is about sacrifice, and difficult times in the relationship are a reminder that marriage brings about sanctification. Jason draws connections between marriage and Scripture, illustrating the fact that neither marriage nor the Christian faith is all joy or all sorrow.
