I have long puzzled over my own denomination's "Battle for the Bible that began before I was born and lasted over a few decades, and the reality that we are good at defending the Bible as the authoritative, inspired, infallible word of God but not very good at letting the Bible completely change our lives and our hearts, our marriages and our families, our churches and our communities. It's good to be reminded that I, nor my denomination are keepers of the Holy Grail (the Bible) but that as individuals live their lives in the light of scripture we help others to do the same.

Because love's the show, it won't ever fold;
Around town it seems like everyone knows it'll raise the sky....It'll blow the sky.

No one prays enough, or is good enough, that he deserves to be heard by God. God always listens because he is gracious, not because we deserve it (65).
He must refrain from trying to manipulate or impress God, because what motivates God to listen and to respond is not any virtue or activity in the one who prays, but rather God's own infinite love (75).

We are created for Him. Yes, we are made for God, not because He was lonely or because we were able to offer God anything but simply because of His love for us. We are made to find wholeness in Him not in others or things, but in Him!
We are created in His likeness. We are embossed with the divine seal. Engraved with the anniversary date of our salvation secured by Christ on Calvary's mount. We reflect Him the way the water reflects the sun or light bounces off a bald man's head. We are His, in every way!
"Humanity will bear His image. He will be seen in this creation. Never mind that His image-bearers once forfeited that privilege. Even before we lost it, He had determined to recraft it in us."
Image really is everything!

"Above all else, guard your heart for it affects everything you do. Avoid all perverse talk: stay far from corrupt speech. Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; then stick to the path and stay safe. Don't get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil." Proverbs 4:23-27
Pray that you wouldn't get sidetracked by the temptation which attacks you every day.
