Day 49: 50 Days All In

If you have asked yourself can I be a solo Christian, someone who can do it on their own not needing a church family to connect with, I would recommend studying the verse today. There are many men and women who have this attitude that the church is corrupt and broken, a place of hypocrites and vagabonds. I can make it better on my own they say, I can read books and watch or listen to various preachers. I don’t need to be associated with any group of believers, they will only drag me down. As we come to a close in our study of being all in what did Jesus have to say about going it alone.
I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.
John 17:20-23 NLT
This just isn’t something the church made up to keep people in the seats and shelling out cash. We are called into the family of God. Jesus in this passage asks his Father to help us be one with each other. Other times he calls us the body, a group who are dependant on each of them, supporting each other and are essential for functionality. We don’t live in a reality of the Adams Family where Thing (a lone hand) can run around independently and survive. In reality, a hand cut off will drain of life and die.
Separating yourself from the church family will cause you to lose focus and purpose. You see this all the time when students who come from Christian homes with Christian values go off to university and don’t quickly plug into a Christ believing church. Their values and purpose get distorted by the adopted school family they replace Christ with. We wonder why they have fallen away. Churches that are located near Colleges and Universities need to be there with open arms to these students.
So maybe you feel your church is dysfunctional and you are ready to leave, maybe you need to realize that the grass isn’t always greener. I challenge you to not give up. Don’t abandon the family, invest in it. Work towards the health, fight for the family. Take some time to self-evaluate and see what you are doing in the church, are you part of the problem or part of the solution. Don’t give in to the temptation to walk away from the problem, tackle it with prayer and communication. Pray that church becomes effective in the mission of reaching others. Be positive about your church, build it up. Love your family. Being in an all in relationship with God means being part of a family of believers. You cannot avoid it.
Father, too many Christians are dissatisfied with their church family. I pray that we start loving it and building it up. I ask that we start working harder at the mission of reaching others. I thank you for what you are doing, thank you for the dreams and visions you are giving the leadership of your church, I pray for workers and warriors who will work to fulfil these dreams and visions. Let us as a church become more effective in sharing your love to others as they matter to you so they should matter to us. We want an all in relationship with you, make us stronger in this resolve. Amen

Day 48: 50 Days All In

To live an all I relationship with God is not meant to be a solo mission. We are communal people by the way we were created. God in His infinite wisdom knew we would be lonely and gave Adam a family in Eve. We need to have friends as close as family who can be there to help us in the good times and the bad. Those who think they can live alone eventually realize that they need some companionship. When you create close bonds with other believers it strengthens your all in relationship with God as well. God can and will speak to you through these bonds.
“A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need.”
Proverbs 17:17 NLT
Do you have a loyal friend? Someone who is close as a brother or sister? A friend who will call you out when you are doing things that are going against what you believe? What you don’t need is a friend who is always joining you in your failings. Sure, they are loyal and are there by your side, but if they are unable to see the end of the cliff both of you will fall. You need a friend who will build you up in your faith and vice versa. One who will always be watching your back and never have to worry that you got theirs.
But if my friend tells me I was sinning who are they to judge me? You must give them the right to hold you accountable for your actions. This is a hard thing to do but if you honestly hand over this to your friend, they will most likely do the same for you. Then together you can safely watch each others backs without fear of turning on each other.
If you don’t have someone like that in your life, maybe it is time to find someone or a small group of friends. It will take some time to build that trust, but it will be more beneficial in the end. You will most likely find someone like this in your church. You need to be involved in a local family of believers, not just attending on Sundays but investing in the growth of the family. When you invest your time, money and energy you will find that there are others who are looking for brothers and sisters to be accountable to. You can’t do this alone, that’s not how we were created.
Father, we are never meant to go this journey alone. Thank you for giving us loyal friends to help us along this journey. Help us to dig into our local church, investing our time, money and energy. Strengthen us to create the bonds that will keep us accountable to one another. Build us up so we can lift each other up when needed. Holy Spirit we thank you for your guidance. Keep working in our lives. Build in us an all in relationship. Amen

Day 47: 50 Days All In

To have a relationship with God, the Bible uses the symbolism of a door to our hearts. This reflects that if we want to have a relationship we first must open the doors of our hearts to it. Jesus isn’t like the S.W.A.T. team ready to bombard your life when you least expect it. Patiently and without fail he is waiting there for you. There are times when it feels like the knock is louder than others, this I believe can be true because we may have become good at blocking the knocking out, but someone telling us about Jesus brings the knocking to the forefront of our hearts. This is the feeling you get when you’re at church and the minister gives a salvation prayer and your heart is beating a mile a minute wanting to make the choice to follow God, yet something in your head says ‘RUN’. So, you ignore the knock and go on with your life. God desires an all in relationship with you, maybe it is time to open the door and experience the love of Jesus.
“We all arrive at your doorstep sooner or later, loaded with guilt, our sins too much for us— but you get rid of them once and for all.”
Psalm 65:2 MSG
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”
Revelation 3:20 NIV
Jesus is knocking at the doors of every human being on this earth. He loves every single person alive and has a strong desire to meet them. He loves you and is knocking at your heart looking to come spend time with you. Have a relationship with you.
One of the problems we have is we have loaded the hallway to the door full of our guilt. We can’t see that there is a doorway yet alone hear someone knocking. Ideas and false teachings muffle out the call of the true saviour, feeding us untruths which keep you away from Jesus. Some believe they must clean themselves up before they answer the door and invite Jesus in, this just isn’t the case, he wants to meet you as you are. He will work with you to clean up after, why struggle to clean it up alone when he is offering to help.
Others feel if the let him in he is going to start condemning them for all the things they have done and collected in their lives. He promises to forgive you of your past and work with you to create a better tomorrow, showing you things, you will willingly throw out of your life when compared to the love of Jesus. Why would you wear dirty rags when he is providing the best clothing possible?
Still, others have just not heard anything about him. They live their lives oblivious that there is a problem called sin and that life as they know it is all there is. No one has ever shared the love of Jesus. The church to them might be a place people go a club of sorts for the weak-willed who get suckered in and throw away their money.
Lastly, others hear yet they feel that he couldn’t possibly be calling them. Voices telling them that Jesus is fine for others, but he wouldn’t have time for you. These are voices from the enemy whose main goals are to keep you spearhead from Jesus. Fight those voices, climb over everything that is in the way of you opening the door, rip it open and meet the man who died for you so that you may live.
Jesus is knocking at your door today! Will you listen? Will you fight against the voices that tell you he isn’t? Jesus loves you. He cares for you. He will heal you, spiritually, physically and mentally. He will bring peace and joy. Life as a follower of Jesus isn’t all rainbows and ponies, but it will change your heart and give you an eternal perspective that you never had before. God’s plan for you is to have an all in relationship with him. What is holding you back from experiencing this?
Jesus, there are those reading this that need to hear your knocking at their door. It is there yet they have blocked it out with so much other stuff that it is very faint. I ray that it will start to get louder as they lean their ears to hear it. Let it be persistent in their hearts. They need to feel your love from believers and know that you truly love them. Reveal yourself to them today. Let me be a light to them as well. They matter to you Jesus, so they matter to me too. Amen

Day 46: 50 Days All In

God desires to have an all in relationship with every human, that was the original purpose. When sin entered the lives of man, His mission did not change, He still desires to have the same relationship. For awhile He arranged that it must be through obedience and rules. Some of these rules were such that it felt impossible to follow. We believe He did this as to show us that without Him involved we cannot cleanse ourselves of the mess we are in. But when the rest of the plan fell in place we see that He made an easier way for us to have the relationship restored
For God is pleased when, conscious of his will, you patiently endure unjust treatment. Of course, you get no credit for being patient if you are beaten for doing wrong. 1 Peter 2: 19-20a
Jesus, coming in the form of a sinless baby, was raised by loving parents, taught the disciples of who he was and his purpose, was crucified whilst still sinless, and rose again to bridge the gap between God and man. This bridge is one that promises that we can experience the same relationship that Adam had in the garden where he communicated and walked with God. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the light, no one comes to the Father but through me” John 14:6.
To be in the will of God is to look at the mission. The mission has always been the same. Jesus commanded us to continue the mission in Mark 16:15-16. If we as believers are purposefully following the mission which we are commissioned to fulfil then God is pleased with what we do, and we can expect to be treated unjustly.
Does your life reflect the fact that you have an all in relationship with God? Do the people around you associate you with being a follower of Christ? How we carry ourselves and act around other people says so much about who we are. When we build up our church and the love of the family of God, it will draw people in. If our actions don’t match our words it will, of course, turn people off to our message and who wants to go to a place where no one is happy or there is no joy? We need to be involved in the health and life of our churches, sharing the exciting things that are happening with others.
Are you committed to the mission? Does your heart cry out for an all in relationship with him? The church you attend is not there to satisfy your needs but to be a lighthouse to those who are looking for the same relationship you have. There is freedom from sin for your family, friends, co-workers and people you meet walking down the street. But if we don’t tell them about Jesus or invite them out to meet our family, they will never know about it. They will continue to walk around oblivious to the fact they are separated from God. God desires to have an all in relationship with you just like he did with Adam and Eve. One where He can walk and talk with you bonding and working with us here on earth. I ask again; Are you committed to the mission?
Jesus, thank you for dying for our sins, creating the bridge that reconnects us with the Father. Thank you for washing away our sins. I pray Jesus that you will ignite the hearts of your people here in Canada to your mission that you have commissioned us to. Let us set aside the apathy and realize time is short, people are dying and going to hell and need to know that there is another way. They need to experience you, Jesus. Awaken your church family from the malaise that has crept into our families and shake us up. Help us set aside our pride and egos and start focusing on reaching others. Remind us that church isn’t about satisfying our needs but reaching others. Help us to show others your desire for an all in relationship with them. They matter to you so they matter to me. Amen

Day 45: 50 Days All In

We all have a vital role to play in the world. We may not know it but the choices we make will deeply impact those around us and future generations. Ruth made the important choice of standing by Naomi even after her husband, Naomi’s son died, this decision can be seen rippled throughout the Bible as Ruth was the Great Grandmother of King David. If you know your bible you will all know that Jesus bloodline is from David. So the choice, however small at the time, doesn’t always affect us but could be world changing. As we grow in an all in relationship with God we need to put trust the directions God gives us in the choices we make, even if they don’t make sense at the time.
But Herod said, “I beheaded John. Who, then, is this I hear such things about?” And he tried to see him. (Luke 9:9 NIV)
Jesus was a man who caused a lot of people to take notice. Herod was a man who ran the country and did as he pleased, only to satisfy himself and Rome. Herod heard about Jesus and made an effort to see the man who was doing amazing miracles and teaching profoundly. Herod once was interested in John the Baptist teachings, only killing him to please his daughter as per her mother’s request. He saw something in John that stirred his heart, but his position and pride were more important than his soul. This same Herod, would not meet Jesus until the day he was dragged before him to be crucified. And when he finally got to talk to Jesus, ask him questions, Jesus remained silent. Once again Herod could have saved Jesus, just as he could have saved John, but pride and position played their role. He didn’t find anything worthy of killing him but gave him over to be killed none the less.
Herod’s choices like Ruth’s created a ripple throughout history. How Herod dealt with Jesus was unfair and self-serving, yet where would we be if Jesus had not died? Herod played a role in bringing salvation into the world. Knowingly or not he fulfilled the will of God in sending Jesus to the cross. We have no idea if Herod ever repented of his choices and accepted Christ.
What role are you playing today? Are you being obedient to the mission Jesus has called you to? We make the choice to share our faith, we cannot always see the impact we are making in the world. The story of the man praying in a field, overheard by a young man had no idea that the cry for a man of faith would be within earshot. How could he have known that Billy Graham would rise up obedient to God’s call and touch countless lives? It was his choice and obedience to pray echo the same faith of Ruth. If we want to grow in our all in relationship we need to listen to God’s callings and share our faith. How many lives will be changed because you listened and obeyed?
Father, thank you for examples like Ruth who show us that every choice we make can change history. Thank you for men like Billy Graham who were obedient to your call and impacted a multitude. We pray for the strength to obey your calling in our lives. Help us to recognize that our choices impact each other, and we don’t always see the end result. Use us to reach this world with your love. Give us a renewed vision and hunger for those who need to know you. Grow our all in relationship with you. Amen

Day 44: 50 Days All In

In our desire to have an all in relationship we must remember that conversation is vital to survival. God wants to have conversations with us. This is displayed all throughout the bible and history with people doing amazing things after spending time in conversation with God. Moses after a heart to heart with God rescued a nation from slavery. Solomon in talking with God asked for wisdom, then becoming the most famous king of all time. Jesus continued to focus on talking with God and look what he did. Don’t forget the importance of communication with God.
“I love the LORD because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!”
Psalms 116:1-2 NLT
So, who feels like praying? I mean the Psalmist here writes that he will pray as long as he has breath. I pray, and my mind wanders at times to things that don’t matter. Maybe if I didn’t fill my head with tv and movies it would help. Do I really want God to listen to my prayers? Yes, I do, and I am sure you do too.
How many acronyms do you know for ways to pray.
PUSH – Pray Until Something Happens
PRAY – Praise, Repent, Anything for others, Yourself
TIP – Thanksgiving, Intercession, Praise
I am sure there are more (love to hear them in comments) but it doesn’t matter how you pray, it is your heart behind it. Praying out if selfishness or greed will produce empty results. Love and humility, an earnest desire to do the work of Christ.
Jesus during his time on earth talked about an advocate he would send, to help us. “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you.” John 14:16 maybe we in our prayer life need to spend a few minutes inviting the Holy Spirit to join us in our prayers. If the Holy Spirit is in us, as promised by Jesus himself, then wouldn’t it make sense for us to ask him to stand with us in our prayers?
Holy Spirit, we welcome you today to stand with us in our prayers. All too often we come to our knees and petition and pray without you. Sure, we know your there, but we want to invite you personally to join us. We love you and welcome you to move in and through our lives and prayers. Complete the all in relationship we desire. Amen.

Day 43: 50 Days All In

Day 43: All In
We are living in a society today who gets their news from memes. I can’t even count the number I have seen since the latest school shooting, and the outcry in all facets from outright banning guns, to certain guns, to some really weird concepts. No matter what we do as a society to keep tools out of evils hands, evil will find a way to harm. We as believers need to sit up and take notice of the young people who were directly impacted and what their response is; Action. They want to see change so this doesn’t happen again. They need our thoughts and prayers but we as believers need to start acting. What this world truly needs is all in believers who are ready willing and able to share their faith. Until this world realizes they need Jesus, nothing will change. We are called on this mission of love. We are called to action.
“The LORD tests the righteous, But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates. Upon the wicked He will rain coals; Fire and brimstone and a burning wind shall be the portion of their cup. For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; His countenance beholds the upright.”
Psalms 11:5-7 NKJV
““Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
Matthew 24:9-14 NKJV
We are living in a time closer to Christ’s return than ever before. Sin is running rampant in our world. Leaders bombing their own country in the name of ending opposition. Kids killing kids, mothers killing their flesh and blood in the name of convenience, suicide in pill form for those who so desire. The ease that one gives up on love and marriage. People so easily offended, and in their offence betray their offender with such hatred that it causes much discourse. In a nation that stands for free speech, our words can cost us everything. We are no longer allowed to oppose some evil as the government has allowed sin to become law.
We even have some major religious leaders making grandiose statements that are so contradictory to Jesus teaching that many people of this world are being deceived.
But don’t worry, God is in control. But we can’t sit and wait for someone else to do something to save our friends, family, neighbours and coworkers. We NEED to sense the urgency that is upon us. To expect others to do the mission we are called to is naive and childish. The Pastor, elders and staff of your church are just men and woman like you. They may sit in a position or appointment, but it doesn’t advocate you from the mission. So you give money to your missionaries, let them do the work and feel good about forwarding the missing; no we need to be men and woman of action, we need to be telling people about the freedom that is available in Jesus.
We are called to an all in relationship. This means we are to give ourselves to the relationship as well. It isn’t about what we can get out of it, that’s who so many relationships fail when one side expects everything and is unwilling to work together. God uses our uniqueness to so that he is willing to work with us, he is asking you to work with him.
We need to share Jesus with all of those we love. If not, then you need to ask yourself one honest, yet hard question why do we follow him?
Father, I pray that your story flows from my lips, let me share your life effectively, but I must share it. I can’t sit and wait for someone else. Give me opportunities today, in the next hour to share your love with someone. Let my fears of failure dissipate as I choose to live a life all in. May those around me see a change even today, let your love overflow my life. If I have been dismissing the call to action I pray that you will forgive me. I choose to serve you. AMEN

Day 42: 50 Days All In

This week heaven welcomed home a man who embodied what it meant to have an all in relationship with God. When I think of heaven I return to Randy Alcorn’s artistic vision of heaven, where we arrive through from this world into the next into a ‘birthing room’. There we are met by people who were our earthly family and those we impacted with the faith. Jesus standing right there, the center of it all, welcoming us home. I see Rev. Graham, after embracing his savior wiping the tears of joy from his eyes looking around to the mass of people surrounding them asking the savior “who are all these people here?” Jesus, looking at him with love and saying “Billy, these are all the people your life impacted for my kingdom.” Then and there each one, like a wedding line, they each and everyone hugging and embracing Rev. Graham giving him a crown thanking him for showing them God’s love maybe even telling their story on how he impacted their lives. After what seems like an eternity, Billy looks over at the pile of rewards gathered at his feet, turns his face to Jesus and bows down. “My savior, these are for you.” “Well done my good and faithful servant.”
“Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.”
Ephesians 5:1-2 NLT
I wonder if we examined yesterday, and really took some time to break it down, how would it look compared to the example of Christ. I wouldn’t have to look very hard to find times that I either missed an opportunity to share the love of Jesus or find a time where my example was not much of one. We go through life just doing the motions. Not really thinking about what we are doing as they have become ingrained in us. No one can expect us to compare ourselves with other believers, yet sometimes we do that to ourselves. There may never be anyone like Billy Graham because he was called for his mission his purpose. You are called to be you.
To imitate God isn’t something that instantaneously happens when we accept Jesus into our lives. We are a work in progress, we still have to live in this sinful world which will daily grind us done in hopes of us throwing aside the new found freedom we have. The enemy doesn’t want us to be effective in our walk with Jesus. If he has lost you he will do everything in his power to either get you to relinquish the freedom or make you apathetic to the cause of reaching others. Lazy Christians are effective for the enemy.
But as followers of Jesus, we like children should be looking at him as a role model, father figure, teacher. Someone to look up to, aspire to, work to become like, it is what we are called to. He gave us a mission of sharing the same love, that rescued you from the eternity in hell, and to share it to those around us. Those who are like us, those who live close by and may not be like us, those outside our area and those out in the world. Do not be deceived, we are called to tell others about Jesus. If you are not telling others about Jesus, you are not listening to the one who saved you.
What is holding you back from sharing Jesus with people? If we want to experience and all in relationship with God, then we need to share our hope. We can’t keep this awesome truth to ourselves. Learn from Billy Graham’s all in relationship with God, he didn’t keep God’s love to himself and his life and ministry impacted untold numbers of people. God can use you to impact untold numbers of people. Will you let him?
Jesus, we thank you for rescuing us. We ask your forgiveness if we haven’t been faithful in sharing you live with others. Help us to do this daily. Encourage us to see the moments and grasp them. As we see people come to you it will motivate us, even more, to share your love. Set us on fire. They matter to you, so they matter to me. Amen

Day 41: 50 Days All In

Day 41: All In
The resistance to the truth about Jesus love and God’s desire to have a relationship with his people is as strong as it has always been. Maybe the type of resistance has changed to one more of intellect then stubbornness, but none the less it is still prevalent. God’s plan for salvation was a fairly simple one, yet painful for him to experience. He endured it so that we as mankind would have the redemption and forgiveness to restore the relationship that was the original intent for our lives. God wants us to not only love him but to have an all in relationship with him.
“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God freely and graciously declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.”
Romans 3:23-24 NLT
Isn’t it amazing to see that we are really no different than those around us who don’t know Jesus love? We make the same mistakes and live our lives day to day in the same world that they do. What we have is that we accepted the gift of salvation free given by the father thru the cross.
Seems so simple. So easy. Once you get it and understand it, it doesn’t make any sense why those who are wandering through life don’t. But it shouldn’t make us feel superior to those who have yet accepted Christ. We need to see those people as Jesus sees them. Lost, alone, hurting, dying and in need of Jesus saving grace. We should be burdened to tell them about him.
We are called to reach them, we are called to tell them about the grace that we have been given. Jesus says “I stand at the door and knock”, well he is knocking on every door of every person. Our job and mission is to let the people know who is on the other side so they will realize that it is safe to open the door to him. We can’t open the door for them, that would defeat the purpose of his plan.
I ask you again today, do people matter to you? Do the lost and hurting people you meet everyday matter to you? Have you been given grace? Why aren’t you sharing this grace to others? Because they matter to God the should matter to you. Because they are loved by God they should be loved by you. Don’t expect someone else to do the mission you were called to do. Part of an all in relationship with God is putting aside your fears and reaching out to those who need to meet him.
Jesus, I am asking you to keep opening my eyes and heart to the lost, I want to speak love and mercy to those around me. I want to daily reach others for you. You are coming back soon and I don’t want anyone to spend eternity in hell crying why didn’t he tell me about Jesus. Let me be a light to one around me, let me open my lips to speak the truth. Jesus you are what the people in this world need. Use me, even today. Amen

Day 40: 50 Days All In

Kevin Ott uses a story of living our lives in a cardboard castle. We live in it enthralled with its beauty, fantasizing about how great it is to live here. Yet outside the box is a real castle, clothed in every jewel, precious metal and lush fabrics. Inside the box we are so caught up in our world that we don’t want to poke our head out to see what life outside the box looks like. We can choose to live our lives all in the box, or we can have an all in relationship with God, but you can’t have it both ways.
“Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.”
Colossians 3:2-3 NLT
Life here on earth is like living in the cardboard castle. We are satisfied with what is available to us right here right now. God promises us that there is a better place, a perfect place that outshines this far and dreary world. He promises that those who accept Jesus and follow him will experience this place. Those who have accepted Jesus have seen a glimpse of what life will be like with the love that comes from Jesus.
So, we sit in the cardboard box. Most don’t really know how to get out, many having no desire to. Some believe the box just created itself out of nothing, and one day the box will just implode upon itself completing a cycle of life. Some believe that there are many ways out of the box and each one leads to the same place. Jesus tells us that no one comes to the Father but through Him. No leader on earth, no man or woman, has ever made that claim. Jesus is the only way to get out of the box.
Back to reality now. Our lives are meant for so much more. We are being drawn to God, as it is our hearts’ ultimate desire. We were created to have a relationship with the creator. We can’t worship the creation it won’t bring us closer to the creator. Sin separates us from the creator. Jesus is the creator. John 1 tells us this. Jesus the creator, came to his creation, died and rose again so that we can have a relationship with him. Sin is defeated and can be forgiven for those who only ask forgiveness from the creator.
It is time for us as believers to start sharing more about what Jesus has done for us. We need to be more purposeful in our words and actions. It is time for our love for the Father to pour out of our lives on a daily basis. If we truly know what life is outside the box, then we must be willing to share it with those here with us. Be bold take hold of the all in relationship that is available outside the box.
Jesus, let us be bold in sharing our faith with others. Give us daily moments that we can see and use to tell others about your love, let us be faithful in inviting people to church. Help us to love them as you love them. None are unworthy of your grace, we cannot pick and choose who we share your love with. They all matter to you, so they matter to me. Let me live all in. Amen
