He wants the rose!

Hey friends! I've been hearing a lot of talk about Francis Chan in the blog world. That makes me so happy! I LOVE Francis and podcast him often along with Mark Driscoll and Matt Chandler. Matt Chandler is an incredible pastor that tells it like is but with love and grace. John Piper spoke at Matt's church over Christmas and said that Matt is like a son to him...WOW!

Here is a video of Matt that brought me to tears. One of my struggles is believing that God really loves me despite all of this junk. (I know he loves me) As Matt has said, "it's ok to not be ok but it's not ok to stay that way." God takes us like we are and transforms us.

This video is 3 minutes and 54 seconds....I dare you to watch it.

  1. Thanks for sharing the video. It's a good reminder that no matter our sins, the Lord is there to forgive us and embrace us.

    I really like 'It's ok not to be ok, but it's not ok to stay that way.'

  2. I think that the rose thing could be a positive teaching tool- perhaps with sexual purity in a youth group- kind of like "do you want to present your future husband with this?" but not God...not cool. Ah.maz.ing video. Loved it.
