Thorny Soil

Thorns are anything that distracts us from God. When we want God and a bunch of other stuff, then that means we have thorns in our soil.  A relationship with God simply cannot grow when money, sins, activities, favorite sports teams, addictions, or commitments are piled on top of it." ~ Francis Chan, Crazy Love

I Want To Know Christ

Are you satisfied being "godly enough" to get yourself to heaven, or to look good in comparison to others?  Or can you say with Paul that you "want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death" (Phil. 3:10)? ~ Francis Chan, Crazy Love
