“Some of us have lived with those voices for so long that they sound like the truth. They sound like our own voice. They may even sound like God’s voice. But they’re not. God’s voice speaks words of acceptance. Words that give. Words that restore. THE WORD THAT ACCEPTS The night before Jesus died, he gathered with his closest friends and followers in a borrowed banquet room in Jerusalem. There, in the”
Bob Hostetler, The Red Letter Life: 17 Words from Jesus to Inspire Simple, Practical, Purposeful Living

“custom of the day, he and his twelve disciples reclined on narrow couches, arranged like spokes on a wheel around a low table. The table was supplied with all they needed to share a Passover meal together. Matthew, one of the men who was there, recorded part of the evening: When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. And while they were eating … Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.” 88 When Jesus said, “Take and eat,” he was doing”
Bob Hostetler, The Red Letter Life: 17 Words from Jesus to Inspire Simple, Practical, Purposeful Living

“Repentance is not an emotion. It is not feeling sorry for your sins. It is a decision. It is deciding that you have been wrong in supposing that you could manage your own life and be your own god; it is deciding that you were wrong in thinking that you had, or could get, the strength, education and training to make it on your own; it is deciding that you have been told a pack of lies about yourself and your neighbors and your world. And it is deciding that God in Jesus Christ is telling you the truth. Repentance is a realization that what God wants from you and what you want from God are not going to be achieved by doing the same old things, thinking the same old thoughts. Repentance is a decision to follow Jesus Christ and become his pilgrim in the path of peace. 41”
