August 1: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?


It doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done or how long you’ve believed—we all literally have until our last breath. Matthew 20:9-16

When the church tells you that you’re too loud, too driven or don’t fit—who cares! Christ shut them up to talk to you; not visa-versa. Matthew 20:29-34

Stop commodifying the Lord’s House of Prayer. I don’t care about your Christian ‘brand’ or how well you can repackage and market our faith; and neither does Jesus. Matthew 21:12-13

Much love.
