God wants to have a reciprocal, intimate relationship with us. Spiritual children experience the beginning of a relationship with their Heavenly Father. Spiritual young men and women know the Bible, are strong and have overcome the Evil One. Spiritual mothers and fathers experience the infinite depths of intimacy with God Himself.

Topic: Devotional Life
Duffle bag religion is a collection of good works that prevents the pursuit of an authentic relationship with God. Paul warns us that we pride ourselves on wearing our pedigrees and miss the cloak of compassion. We fancy our reputations over our integrity and smugness over vulnerability. It is all about seeking God Himself, not just the blessings.

Topic: Preaching & Teaching
God wants us to be addicted to Him. We can fall in love with doing good things, with resisting sin, with caring for the poor, with memorizing Scripture, but it's about falling in love with Jesus. www.crazylove.org. Used by permission.
