What we live

Ann Voskamp on the Gospel: "The Gospel isn’t a one time message for the unbeliever but the constant miracle for the imperfect. The Gospel isn’t only what we believe in — because the Gospel is ultimately what we. live. out. Christianity isn’t about growing good — it’s about growing grace-filled. The grace we’ve received from the heart of God is the grace that extends our arms to the world.

When you fail and you bleed fallen and you’re the mess just wild to somehow make it, it’s inhaling the Gospel that heals: Blessed assurance, Jesus assures: You don’t have to pull yourself up by your bootstraps — you only have to pull close.

The key for me over the years has been learning to listen for the still small voice of the Holy Ghost...then obeying that voice.
