This track by Bassnectar (Feat. W Darling) has been on repeat for two days now.
Happy Monday, my friends.
“And it’s you and me
against the world now…”
PT, check out the giver in theaters. There's a part where Jonas (the main character) hears music for the first time and it stirs something in him. If you're not familiar with the book, it's about a futuristic community depleted of emotions (by injections). However, one "Giver" releases memories of love, hope, music, snow, faith, etc, and the result is Life that the boy will go to lengths to release to the entire community. It reminded me of being filled with the Holy Spirit for the first time, how it's like everything comes to a more vibrant life, including music, love, hope, even snow (or in your case the sand on the beach). And nothing the boy did got him this Life, he was just a "receiver". Cheers!
I saw it on Saturday night. Loved it. And your summary of it is the best I've read. So good!
I don't know if you respond to comments and questions here? I have a question that has nothing to do with your post today. In my own brokenness from life I have been encouraged and enlightened by the message of grace you have been teaching. On my journey in understanding that I don't need to please God by doing xy and z I am not sure what to do with scriptures like "Draw near to God and He will Draw near to you" Or when Paul says in His letters that when you do "these things it is pleasing to God". Or "present your life as a living sacrifice that is holy and acceptable to God". Appreciate some further understanding on this?
Thanks for continually sharing good stuff, thought i'd return the favor.
Nice, Sam! Seriously. Nice. Keep 'em coming.
