a friend wrote me this quote
by tullian tchividjian. billy graham's grandson,
with beautiful parents that i happen to know.
"Jesus plus nothing equals nothing."
it takes Jesus plus love.
Jesus plus one.
Jesus plus the Cross.
Jesus plus you and i and love
we are all Jesus has to work with.
His arms and legs and love and forgiveness
and hope. we are Jesus where we live, and
that is everything.
and it takes
Jesus plus sorrow. and
Jesus plus loss. and
Jesus plus shattering
losses and obstacles and failure
before His power really shines through.
before we really get a strong grip on His love
and His Blood and His Sovereignty.
for the Cross and
for Jesus who paid the Price.
and the Blood that washes all
things white as snow.
