"Religion" is bogus
"Jesus didn't come to make us religious. He came to make us human." - Pastor Matt Heard
Christianity isn't about rules or regulations - it's about freedom. His grace sets us free.
Today in church, we sang "How he loves" while a video of little kids acting out Jesus' life played. It brought me to tears. My body shook as I sang
He is our portion and we are His prize
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes
If grace is an ocean, we're all sinking...
Communion isn't about rules
It's about remembering. You don't have to be a member of the church. It doesn't have to be unleavened bread and real wine. It can be leftover dinner rolls and red Powerade, or a loaf of bread and some grape juice.
"This is my body, given for you... do this in remembrance of me."
The man's got to lead
In a relationship, it's the man's job to lead. It's his job to protect and care, to make decisions and guide the relationship. To say what needs to be said and to hold back what shouldn't be said yet. He must always be honest. He should pray, to himself at first, then out loud, with her.
