Think on these things

From Greg Burnett:
Thus my confession, too, is that I am dark (in my sin nature) yet lovely to Him. He enjoys me, even in my weakness. Oh the wonders of His love, it changes men! He does not love like mere human beings; His love does not fade and He will not take it away. Repent, friend, of your sin and self-centered life for God cares for you. Let love and forgiveness wash you from the lust and lies and theft that grip you. Do not be defined by your failure to love God perfectly, but stand again with the perspective that you are loved and thus will be a lover of God day to day, step by step.
As it says in Jude 24-25:

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
And to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
To God our Savior, Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.

and Randy Bohlender:
For me, what we're doing right now is the frontier. For where God is going, it needs to look like this. Less practical on earth, more practical in heaven. Why on earth would God do some thing as irrational as use a group of people singing and praying in a funky, remodeled grocery store? Unless the cutting edge of His plan all along included them.
