Philip Yancey

Jesus gave us a model for the work of the church at the Last Supper. While his disciples kept proposing more organization - Hey, let's elect officers, establish hierarchy, set standards of professionalism - Jesus quietly picked up a towel and basin of water and began to wash their feet.

I worship you Lord! You did not enter your holy city Jerusalem on the back of a war horse, but humbly and on a donkey. You knew that you were surrounded by murderers, yet you came in peace, and by your sacrifice you would utterly conquer death before the week had passed. You, oh Lord, are blessed and worthy of my praise. You have saved your people. I say, "You are my king!"... I long to live in the city where you sit on the throne! Establish your Kingdom, so that your people can live in peace. Jesus, I bow before you, and I will sing your praises until your Kingdom comes and is established, and forever after.

Brokenness forced me to change my frantic pace of life. If you could have seen how busy I was, you would have thought I believed the Bible said, "Be hyper and know that I am God." I had replaced intimacy with God with frenzied activity. I had to learn to stop going mach IV speed in a camel body. Imitating Martha came natural but the ways of Mary were foreign.

The first century money changers were in the temple, but they didn't have the spirit of the temple... They were out of sync with the whole purpose of the Lord's house. "The atmosphere of my Father's house," Jesus seemed to say, "is to be prayer. The aroma around my Father must be that of people opening their hearts in worship and supplication. This is not a place to make a buck. This is a house for calling on the Lord.

Practically everyone has known the taste of Palm Sunday, the sweetness of success and popularity, and nearly all of us have tasted the bitterness of Good Friday, of failure and rejection. What saves us from an endless round of ups and downs, what frees us from the tyranny of events over which we have no control is our commitment to press forward in obedience to God -it is trust in God's love to bring about Easter morning, - knowing that the meaning of life is to be found in the knowledge and love of God,- and in sharing that knowledge and love with those who accompany us on the way.

God saw the heart of a king in David long before he even had a crown on his head. God doesn’t build kings on the stage; He builds them in the cave.

Repentance, far above all else, is a turning away from wrong ideas about God and about yourself and coming into an exchange of receiving by the Spirit of Truth, the mind of God about Himself, in you. It's not being ashamed of yourself but exchanging yourself. It's not a one time event but an on-going change from glory to glory. Repentance is not just changing your mind but losing your mind and gaining His.

It is said that sheep may get lost simply by nibbling away at the grass and never looking up. That can be true for any of us. We can focus so much on what is immediately before us that we fail to see life in larger perspective.

Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, and takes off the relish of spiritual things - that to you is sin.

To reach your potential, you must know where you want to go and where you currently are. Without both of these pieces of information, you’re liable to get lost.
