Since Grace, and its irrationality, is the foundation of the Scriptures, it got me to reflect on everything else that doesn't 'make sense' - to those on the outside looking in ... and often to those who follow Christ.
I conquer by yielding.
I find rest under a yoke.
I am saved for eternity by nothing that I do and by the simplest faith.
I reign by serving.
I find riches when I am poor in spirit and when I give beyond my means.
I forgive because I am forgiven and to be forgiven.
I am made content through sufferings.
I am made great by becoming small.
I become wise by being a fool for Christ's sake.
I am made free by becoming a bondservant.
I honor myself by honoring God and other's first.
I love myself by loving God and other's first.
I seek first an invisible kingdom.
I am loved, and I love, by choice, not emotions.
I am exalted when I am humble.
I gain strength when I am weak.
I triumph through defeat.
I find victory by glorying in my infirmities.
I live by daily dying.
I am first by putting myself last
I am most satisfied when God is most glorified.
Real riches have nothing to do with what I own.
Real wisdom has nothing to do with what I know.
Real salvation has nothing to do with what I do.
Real freedom has nothing to do with what I choose.
Real glory has nothing to do with how others see me.
Real food has nothing to do with what I eat or drink.
Real value has nothing to do with my accomplishments.
Real beauty has nothing to do with what I see.
Real strength has nothing to do with what I can bear.
Real pleasure has nothing to do with me.
Real love has nothing to do with what I feel.
Real power has nothing to do with what I control.
It doesn't make sense. And that is why I believe.
