What grace is

"So many of you people try so hard to be good. And you think someday you're going to be so good
that God is going to look down on you favorably.
Well, let me tell you something. God already looks down on you favorably.
That's what grace is ...
not because you have earned it but, because He is a favorable looking God."
~Rich Mullins

It took the Hands of God Almighty

We are frail, we are fearfully and wonderfully made 
Forged in the fires of human passion 
Choking on the fumes of selfish rage 
And with these our hells and our heavens 
So few inches apart 
We must be awfully small 
And not as strong as we think we are 

It took the hand of God Almighty 

To part the waters of the sea 
But it only took one little lie 
To separate you and me
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are 
~Rich Mullins

who loved me and gave Himself for me."
~Galatians 2:20

Jesus loved the poor and Jesus loved the broken

"Christianity is not about building an absolutely secure little niche in the world
where you can live with your perfect little wife and your perfect little
children, in your beautiful little house,
where you have no gays or minority groups anywhere near you.

Christianity is about learning to love like Jesus loved, and Jesus loved the poor,
and Jesus loved the broken."
― Rich Mullins

One who is thirsty (Coffee in the Galérie)

"Come." And let the one who is thirsty come;
let the one who desires take the water of life without price."
