“We are not to practice Bible reading, fasting, solitude, prayer, and other disciplines to make God happy with us but to make space to hear how happy God is with us because of Jesus.”
Jimmy Davis, Cruciform: Living the Cross-Shaped Life

“God uses suffering to loosen our grip on the lies we’ve embraced, and to implant in us his words of truth, revealing to us the depth of that truth at levels we could never glimpse in the absence of suffering.”
Jimmy Davis, Cruciform: Living the Cross-Shaped Life
