Is There Not a Cause for Which We Can Live?

Ravi Zacharias, is there not a cause

It’s not too much to say that we live in a world which is burdened … fraying at the seams. Is there something we can do? The Creator is active even now and will restore all things. He distributes slivers of His heart of concern to each of us who are receptive. Ravi Zacharias challenges us to partner with God. Is there not a cause we can live for?

Stellar, thought-provoking presentation!

Feed Your Brain: Coffee with Grass-Fed Butter

Blend your coffee with grass-fed butter instead of creamer. Yes, get the good stuff … Kerrygold unsalted butter.

My morning java blended with grass-fed butter from Ireland!

I think Big Food is concerned about maybe two things:

  1. Does it taste good for the masses?
  2. No matter what, how can we balloon the profit margin?

Weary of being barked at, marketed to, sold a bill of goods, and generally jerked around for someone else’s agenda? Me too. It’s a good day when you start to tell yourself … I’m not a part of the “hoi polloi”—the masses, the rank and file, the sheeple.

Grace Powers Us Up to Live Life by Design

You’ve likely seen  Footprints in the Sand.  The omnipresent poem is about a dream. Someone is walking with God on the beach.

When there are no longer two sets of footprints and just one, God’s explains: “During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.”

But what if it became one set of footprints and a long, messy groove??

footprints in the sand, live life by design

Yes, there are those times we are carried. And at times we may be dragged! All of it is grace and mercy.

Yet …

Those are temporary times and seasons. God has designs on us! And he wants us to walk with him … and to run with him in his story.

Grace is God doing for us what we cannot do for ourselves. It’s unmerited favor. But it’s more. Grace is also an empowerment to live in alignment with his design for us. It’s the strong ability to partner with God and experience true destiny.

Walking with God is relational—and this relationship includes the dimension of living out his dominion right now.

What’s your view? Is grace merely passive? Or is it active?
