Red Letter Day: Father, Forgive Them


To be Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you… how can we do it? Only, I think, by remembering where we stand, by meaning our words when we say in our prayers each night “forgive our trespasses as we forgive those that trespass against us.”
-C.S. Lewis

Called to Discipleship


The average North American Christian is about 3,000 Bible verses overweight… It’s wonderful that people understand what they believe, but knowledge in and of itself is not a hallmark of Christian maturity. As Paul says, knowledge puffs itself up. Love, by contrast, builds up. And some of the most biblically literate people in Jesus day got by-passed by Jesus. – Carrie Nieuwhof

Called to Compassion


Do not despise any man, however poor he may be; but behave with full respect and kindness to every well-intentioned man, especially to the poor, as to our members worthy of compassion- or, rather to members of Christ- otherwise you will cruelly wound your soul. — St. John of Kronstadt

Calling All…


Beware of anything that competes with loyalty to Jesus Christ. The greatest competitor of devotion to Jesus is service for Him…. The one aim of the call of God is the satisfaction of God, not a call to something for Him. – Oswald Chambers

Firm Foundations


The Christian shoemaker does his duty not by putting little crosses on the shoes, but by making good shoes, because God is interested in good craftsmanship. – Martin Luther
