The biggest benefits of Gospel-awareness
are the joy and peace that radiate from a believer who is deeply convinced of the unconditional love of DaddyJesusSpirit for one of His kids, as the kid goes through the day. Warts and all. Whatever it takes to get Gospel-awareness deep in one’s soul, and keep it there, is a bargain investment. Priceless benefit — joy and peace that is not circumstance-dependent.

“Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching” (Hebrews 10:25).
Scripture Focus: Hebrews 10:19-25
In sports parlance a team’s “spiritual leader” is not necessarily its religious leader. He is simply the leading motivator, the spirited encourager of his teammates. He makes them believe in themselves, and he leads them into competition with a winning attitude in their hearts.

I couldn’t look at my Twitter feed today. I stumbled into my office still wiping sleep from my eyes, still trying to remember how to walk, post-unconsciousness. I dropped myself into a chair and sorted out in my head what I needed to accomplish. But my brain hadn’t quite caught up to my ambition yet. It was telling me I should be happy it got me to the chair, and that I should let it be for at least another five minutes out of respect. So I called up Twitter. But I couldn’t move past the first two tweets. I realized how tired I am of some religious stuff.

What if you knew the worst thing, the very worst thing in your life, would lead to something amazing for you and for others?
The worst thing can be the best thing. Like Joseph told his brothers in Genesis 50:20 “you intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is being done, the saving of many lives.”
We only see through human eyes, through our own filters, and our own hopes and dreams. We can’t see the unseen, what will happen in the future, which way the journey will lead, but God knows.
