July 15: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?


Believe the works you see with your own eyes right in front of you. Trust and doubt isn’t about an imaginary best-case-scenario in your own mind. Matthew 11:20-24

The most quoted Old Testament passage by Jesus (Hosea 6:6) is focused on subverting the establishment of a church filled with gatekeepers and ‘brand’ marketing geniuses. Matthew 12:1-14

Stop asking for signs from God to confirm or deny your next decision. The point of faith is believing you have enough of it to faithfully continue walking forward in the opportunities the Lord provides. Matthew 12: 38-39

No amount of intellectualizing what it means to bring ‘heaven to earth’ will ever convince someone who doesn’t want to be convinced. Matthew 13:1-29

Much love.
