QUOTED

“Have you been waiting for your heart to spontaneously combust into love for Jesus? If so, you have your cart before your horse…it’s a frustrating way to ride and produces scant forward progress.”

-Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, Heart Wide Open

But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared,
he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness,
but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
-Titus 3:4-7

“The blessed challenge is to continue drinking that love in as freely as we first reached for salvation. When we feast on this extravagant love and the many gifts He poured out upon us through Jesus Christ, we receive a nutrient-rich meal that nourishes His passion in us.”

-Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, Heart Wide Open
