Grace for holiness

Almighty God, who alone can bring order to the unruly wills and passions of sinful humanity: Give your people grace so to love what you command and to desire what you promise, that, among the many changes of this world, our hearts may surely there be fixed, where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Christian holiness is not a matter of denying something good.  It is about growing up and grasping something even better.

-from Simply Christian, by N.T. Wright

When I think about what Jesus does in the the world and in my heart, I am amazed again, and again, and again.
