hipster the bible

free indeed |

I love the bible. It’s audacious, and scandalous, and shows a God who put on flesh and moved into the neighbourhood to eat amongst prostitutes, call embezzlers to follow Him and rebuke the high-flying religious leaders.

Today Jesus declared an adulterous woman free from condemnation (John 9:11), His followers freed from darkness (12) and from slavery to sin (36). I love intimately knowing a God who doesn’t ignore brokenness, but restores it. Who doesn’t condemn darkness, but brings light into it. My heart is full.

In October i read Psalm 103 every single day.

Sometimes I loved it, sometimes it felt monotonous. But after some time i realised the truths in this are satisfying enough to last not just a month but forever. Every day I keep hearing the same thing.

He loves me. He loves me.

My sin is not held against me. I am washed. I am reading impossible truths made not just possible, but earth-shatteringly real, through the death and resurrection of Jesus:

The eternal God who is King over all loves my fleeting, fickle heart. I am full of iniquity, disease, in the pit, deserving of anger, sinful, like dust and grass, fleeting. But He is Forgiver. Healer. Redeemer. Steadfast. Merciful. Satisfying. Renewing. Righteous. Known. Slow to Anger. Abounding in Love. Remover of Sin. Father. Compassionate. Everlasting. Lord. King.

Think about reading it every day of November. I can testify that feasting on those truths each morning radically changed the responses of my heart to the circumstances of October.

B*TCHELLE AND DIM BULB LITERALLY WENT ON AN ANNIVERSARY TRIP TO HAWAII. IF SOMETHING WAS WRONG WITH THEIR PRECIOUS LITTLE JILLY MUFFIN AND HER NEW DILLY MUFFIN, THEY WOULD HAVE STAYED. JILL AND DILL ARE BOTH FINE. THEY'RE PURPOSELY WITHHOLDING INFORMATION BECAUSE THEY'RE ATTENTION WHORES.

THANKS FOR SENDING THIS IN @ANON!!! I will be so happy once I hear from Jill via visual media, not just random hipster bible stuff. (Annie)
