I promise this will not become a blog of links. but i had to steer you in THIS direction:

Beauty in the Back Row (and the other articles too)

Marcus Yoars, editor of Charisma magazine, penned a number of articles on the move of our Risen LORD in Kansas City; aka: that place that I keep taking courses on that keep changing my life!

definitely worth reading all of the posted articles. You will smile and laugh at the sheer God-ness of God.

Today I seem especially in love with Jesus. I couldn't hold back from lip-synching this song on the plane: "Beloved."

"Beholding is Becoming."

I forgot how impactful this song was on me a couple of years ago because of that line.

I was reminded in my studies in the course "the Excellencies of Christ." They called it the "beholding/becoming principle."

Why Religion Kills: we submit again to works and not grace. We're saved by faith through the person of Christ, but somewhere along the way we take our eyes off Christ and fall into works again. We forget that the sanctification process happens in the same way that salvation happened: keeping our eyes on Christ and keeping faith.

Whatever you behold, you will become like.

Beholding Christ is becoming Christ. Behold! Behold.

"If you can see what Paul saw, you can live like Paul lived."
