The Knowledge Base of Mission:Donut

"This is the humbling truth that lies at the heart of Christianity. We love to be our own saviours. Our hearts love to manufacture glory for themselves. So we find messages of self-salvation extremely attractive, whether they are religious (keep these rules and you earn eternal blessing) or secular (grab hold of these things and you’ll experience blessing now). The gospel comes and turns them all upside down. It says: You are in such a hopeless position that you need a rescue that has nothing to do with you at all. And then it says: God in Jesus provides a rescue which gives you far more than any false salvation your heart may love to chase."
Tim Keller, Galatians for you (via athenagracee)

"Apparently there’s this kind of songbird that thinks it dies every time the sun goes down. In the morning, when it wakes up, it’s totally shocked to still be alive—so it sings this really beautiful song."
Annabel Cotton, from Gus van Sant’s Restless (2011)

Grace (read it forward, then backward line by line.)

forever-messiah:

I have no place in this life

So you can’t tell me

I am important, worthy, and beautiful.

I know what I am:

I am ugly, useless, and broken.

I used to believe that

A God exists who loves me.

But now I have realized that

I deserve to die.

But grace turns it all around.

(read in reverse)

Wow. This is just so powerful.
