Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

On Waiting

"I am not waiting for a husband to come into my life and give it worth: I am seeking my worth in Christ, in the state I'm already blessed to occupy. Whether I have -or ever have -a husband or not, the Lord should be the center of my joy, and the focus of my pursuits. That will make me a better wife someday should the Lord call me to wifehood, yes -but, beyond that, it will make me a better ambassador of Christ here on earth regardless. And, as I want to live ever moment I'm given in passionate pursuit of the Lord's will, I think that puts me on the right track."
