Sozo (greek) - To be saved, To be made whole, To be healed.
When it comes to God, if you want to know who God is—if you want to know what He’s like, if you want to know what His tone is, how He behaves, how He feels, how He responds, how He reacts—you don’t have to speculate. You don’t have to play children’s games. You can find out. You study, you look at, and you watch Jesus Christ. Jesus is the image of the invisible God. Matt Chandler (via healoneisgod)
You’re exhausted in the faith because you’re looking at you. The more you look at yourself and the less you look at God, the more you get frustrated at yourself.
God is not cuddly. He is not cute. There is no dust involved. God hates sin. He hates it. He doesn’t tolerate it. He hates it. If you think God doesn’t hate sin, you need only look at the severity of the cross and the reality of hell to get a picture of how God views and sees sin. It is outward and blatant rebellion against his holy name. He has no patience for it. Matt chandler (via natefarley14)
God likes you. Jesus likes you. He is not tolerating you; he likes you. It’s not just love; he is your advocate. He is arguing on your behalf. He is presenting a case by his blood for your perfection, and he wins the case. Matt Chandler (via earthstranger)
