*** tweets from Cross Conference with Matt Chandler preaching
"When God saves you, he doesn’t do it because you gave him permission. He did it because he’s God."
"There isn’t a violent soul on the planet that God might not save and transform for himself."
God could’ve just destroyed Saul who was ravaging the Way, but It pleased the Father to reveal the Son to Paul. By grace alone!
"It brings God pleasure to reveal Himself to us and save us."
"It brought the heart of God pleasure to save Saul of Tarsus."
The conversion of Paul from persecutor to apostle gives us confidence for those even violently opposed to Christ.
Saul of Tarsus wasn’t seeking Jesus or doubting his own doubts; Jesus didn’t care. He kicked him off his horse!
“Everyday we are being discipled about what life is about. Paul declares with conviction: TO LIVE IS CHRIST!”
"The god of our generation is comfort. Suffering is only looked on as something to be solved."
"Paul says ‘To live is Christ’ because he knows that all other paths are bankrupt."
To live is Christ means that Jesus is supreme over every thing in life including the best things in life.
"Too often we live according to our version of Christ than to truly live for Him."
"We agree with ‘To live is Christ,’ but so many areas of our lives aren’t even about Him."
You can’t say "to live is Christ" until you hold Him as more valuable than anything in this world. All else is rubbish
"To take up your cross is to consider it better to die than to live for something other than Jesus."
“To live is Christ means I have seen the surpassing knowledge of knowing Christ above all other things.”
"If Christ is our treasure than our lives should be marked by Him."
"The motivation [to go to hard places] must be, ‘Christ is my treasure.’"
"Every missionary I know is extraordinarily ordinary. Everything they do, they do by the grace of God."
i love Paul David Tripps tweets…
@PaulTripp – always rich in 140 characters. The following are some that i have favourited and retweeted.
It’s not okay to sin, but it’s also not okay to fail to see that sin through the lens of God’s forgiving and transforming grace.
To know that you will sin in some way today and yet to be assured that you are still accepted by a holy God can only be explained by grace.
For a sinner to stand before a holy and just God and be unafraid is the shocking fruit of grace.
Jesus work for you stands complete. You do not need to fear God’s punishment or his rejection because Jesus bore both on your behalf.
JESUS PAID IT ALL! So your obedience is never payment on a debt and your sin doesn’t increase the size of your debt.
God’s anger and his grace kissed on the cross and the result is forgiveness and life now and forever.
Grace met you at the point of your deepest need and keeps meeting you there again and again and again.
It’s not the size of your faith that is your hope , but the power of God’s amazing grace.
Could there be a greater joy than knowing you’ve been redeemed? Completely forgiven, eternally accepted, being made new.
It’s not your faith that is your hope, but God’s unstoppable, ever-present, right here, right now grace .
Your problem is not whether God will be faithful to his promises, but whether you will be faithful in trusting him.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is radically humbling, radically hopeful and will radically rearrange everything in your life.
Grace is radical. It says radical things about you, radical things about God and offers you radical help that is found no where else.
Marvelous grace is what you need and marvelous grace is what you’ve been given. How about living like you really do believe it?
Obedience is not what gets you grace. No, it’s the evidence that grace has gotten you.
If you perfectly obeyed every command for a thousand years, you’d be no more accepted with God than when you first believed.
God, in grace, not only forgives and accepts you; he places you under new management. You no longer belong to you (2 Corinthians 5:15)
God knows everything from beyond origin to beyond destiny. You have limited years of sin-tainted human experience. Why debate him?
You were not accepted because what you did was good, but your acceptance has now called and empowered you to do what is good.
Wigglesworth Quotes Do not think back, look back or act back.
Jim Elliot Beware, my soul, of idols.
Timothy Keller The sin that is killing you the most right now is the one you are most defensive about or just completely unaware of.
PJ Smyth Satan never plays fair. He will catch you in your weakest area when you are at your most vulnerable. Stay alert.
Ben Reed What’s the largest gap in the world? The one between knowing the right thing & doing it. (Re: James 4:17)
misty edwards "I’m right here, I’m right where you left Me. All this time, patiently waiting. Not hard to find, I’m right where you left Me."
Mike Griffiths We have been set free from the expectations of a sinful world.
The River Church NZ Come Holy Spirit! We love Your presence God!
Tullian Tchividjian You will endure as you increasingly realize that God’s love for you has nothing to do with your endurance but Christ’s endurance for you.
Byron Paulus "The kingdom of heaven doesn’t belong to the sleepers and the lazy, ‘but the violent take it by force’." Clement of Alexandria
Tim Keller Wisdom "Christians are called to be an alternative city within every earthly city."

@fireball3316 You build an altar with your life / judges 6 @fireball3316 The size of prayers depends on the size of our God. And if God knows no limits, then neither should our prayers. Mark Batterson @fireball3316 Most of our identity problems are the result of looking in the wrong mirrors. Mark Batterson
@BestMovieLine "It’s an imperfect world, but it’s the only one we got." -Robert Downey Jr. ‘Iron Man’ 2008
@CharlGambill Don’t let guilt, mistakes, hurts keep you from the things of God. You are needed, forgiven & loved. Get back involved!
@ChristineCaine You are not what you did. Don’t define who you are by a season, action or event in your life. Define who you are by the word of God!
@biancaolthoff If we allow other people to tell us what we are and are not qualified to do, we will limit what God wants to do with us. You are qualified.
@PastorTullian Our sacrifices for God do not gain us God’s acceptance; God’s sacrifice for us in Jesus does.
@ElliotQuotes Lord God, give me the spirit of ‘numbered days,’ a spirit of wisdom and a sense of destiny. Let Thy beauty be upon me.
@JohnBevere We must not allow the allures of this world to deaden our resolve or our commitment to Christlikeness in all things.
@RonEdmondson Integrity in leadership…when who you claim to be is who you really are…
@timkellernyc Weep, trust, pray, think, shift, hope, grow. Ways to handle suffering.
@PaulTripp Biblical faith enables you to look huge difficulties in the face and not panic because you know the God you serve is much, much bigger.
@PuritanQuotes Let your words be the genuine picture of your heart. John Wesley
@nickygumbel Let your faith be less of a theory and more of a love affair.
@JeremyTreat5 God expresses his majesty most powerfully through his mercy.
@cmullinsmusic With God, there is hope even in the most hopeless situation.
its being a good week in tweet world… partly because i discovered a new tweeter, and a new book i want… and partly because i’ve had a few awakened nights which is usually when i’m reading tweets… but here are some of my favs from the week/month

@JesusIsBook Even in our darkest moments of sin and self-centeredness, God still loves us no matter what.
@JesusIsBook God is on your side not because of who you are but because of who He is!
@JesusIsBook Knowing who Jesus is and knowing that He is here for us is the ultimate source of perspective.
@JesusIsBook Religion says that obedience brings acceptance; the gospel teaches acceptance brings obedience.
@JesusIsBook God loved us before we existed!
@JesusIsBook We are sons and daughters of God by birth, not by worth.
@JesusIsBook We should live in a state of awe at the magnificence, the beauty, and the majesty of the Creator of the universe

@DailyKeller "What God gave us at Christmas was not just his Son…What God gave us at Christmas is a whole new life."
@PaulTripp The manger should remind us of how deep our need is. God must go to this extent to restore us to himself and fix what’s broken inside us.
@PaulTripp He came as the Son of Man. He revealed himself to be the Son of God. He now reigns as the conquering King, all for our salvation.
@abracamanda That feeling of operating in your gifts for God’s glory… there is absolutely nothing apart from it that compares. Reignite your passion.
